The Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce held its November business lunch where the Chinese Ambassador to The Bahamas was the guest speaker.
Her Excellency Dai Qingli told the gathering, “the different ideas have been raised particularly regarding Grand Bahama like making Freeport a distribution center. A center for warehousing and even a manufacturing center for The Bahamas covering the entire Caribbean region and even in southern parts of the United States. And China, as you may know, provides a lot of goods, many goods, especially like every day materials and different light industrial goods for the rest of the world. So if you buy directly from China you will save a lot.”
