The Free National Movement (FNM) issued the following statement regarding the Minnis administration’s leadership for the Family Islands and around the country:
“Nobody would argue that much work remains in developing the Family Islands, putting them in a position to thrive in the long term. The Minnis administration, however, is moving the needle, fulfilling its commitment to bring long overdue attention to all parts of the commonwealth.
“Roads and infrastructure development, education investments, new job opportunities and better healthcare are just a few of the areas our FNM Government has worked hard to improve across the islands.
“When Hurricane Dorian, one of the worst storms in recorded history, caused immeasurable damage, the Minnis administration set about to build back better than before. That’s exactly what the Government is doing in Grand Bahama by rebuilding and improving the Rand Memorial Hospital to help meet the demand for quality healthcare.
“In Eleuthera, the Government is working with the local Chamber of Commerce and Disney Cruise Line to open business incubators in order to provide local entrepreneurs and prospective business owners with training, support, space and access to technology so they can grow and prosper.
“Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis has consistently demonstrated his dedication to improving the lives of all Bahamians and will continue to do so. By ensuring vaccinations reach the Family Islands, improving our tourism product, enhancing schools and infrastructure, the Minnis administration is moving the Family Islands forward and preparing the way for a more prosperous future for all.”
