Useful Information for Potential Investors:

The Bahamas is an archipelago of nearly 700 islands, only a few of which have a significant population. The islands stretch in a great arc, extending from 250 miles off the tip of Southern Florida toward the Caribbean.
There is complete political stability, with a democratically-elected Parliament modelled on British lines. Bahamian law, based on English Common Law, is administered by an independent judiciary. The Bahamas is a member nation of the British Commonwealth.

Grand Bahama
The fourth largest island in the Bahamas, Grand Bahama covers approximately 530 square miles. Just over one third of this area is controlled (by Government Agreement) by the Grand Bahama Port Authority Limited [PORT], a privately-owned development company. The main economic resource of Grand Bahama Island remains the tourist industry, although a number of international industrial firms have located here. A substantial injection of offshore investment capital is required to improve tourist facilities, to start light industries, and to establish a larger retirement community of wealthy investors who can benefit from the company's complete Tax Haven Status.

2. Superb Climate & A Clear Blue Sea

3. Ample Fresh Water Supply
Unlike many other islands, Grand Bahama has an average annual rainfall of about 55 inches, assuring an ample supply of drinking water.

4. Magnificent Infrastructure
The Freeport area of Grand Bahama Island is the best-developed & most well-served island community in the Caribbean. There is a superbly planned and maintained infrastructure, with hundreds of miles of paved roads, city power & water, cable television, and all of the facilities for modern living.

5. World Class Container Port - & More!
The Hutchison Port Group now owns 50% of Freeport Harbour and Freeport International Airport. The Harbour has been transformed from a Cruise Liner & Roll-on/Roll-off Port to a magnificent and modern container port. The port, with hard standing for 10,000 containers (including 150 refrigerator spots) and the most sophisticated Straddler and Ship-to-Shore cranes, is able to handle 400,000 container moves per annum. Freeport Harbour has been dredged to 47' at low tide, giving it a considerable advantage over Eastern Seaboard ports. As the Hutchison Group already owns 14 container ports worldwide, Freeport os expected to accrue significant benefits. Hutchison has also acquired 50% of Freeport International Airport, and plans are in hand to develop it for airfreight handling in conjunction with the container port.
