IMF Staff Visit to the Bahamas Statement of Conclusion - Jul 21, 2014 - 8:45:55 AM

An International Monetary Fund (IMF) team, headed by Mbuyamu Matungulu, visited the Bahamas during July 14-18 as part of the regular consultation process with member countries on their economies. The team met with senior government officials and representatives of the private sector. At the end of the discussions, Mr. Matungulu made the following statement:

“Economic activity continues to recover, but momentum remains weak, with growth estimated at 0.7 percent in 2013, and expected to be limited to 1.2 percent this year. The fiscal consolidation process has begun, although its pace could be frustrated by delays in the introduction of the value-added tax (VAT). Preliminary data suggest that the fiscal deficit declined to 4.5 percent of GDP from 5.4 percent in the previous fiscal year. The deficit is projected to narrow further to just under 4 percent of GDP in the 2014/2015 fiscal year, provided that the VAT is introduced in the coming months.

"They coming by boat, they coming by plane, they coming in wheel chair, and walking with cane" is a line taken from a popular Bahamian song that has nothing to do with evacuations, but never the less speaks volumes to what can be expected during an evacuation event. It really asks the question, have you prepared for the variables and challenges that can present themselves during an emergency event.

When crisis events such as fire, bomb threats or even severe weather conditions present themselves timely safe and coordinated evacuations usually form a part of your response options. Be it as simple as evacuating from a building or as complex as evacuating from a country, this escape option cannot be left to chance. Compounding this situation is that during emergency events most rational thinking person become very irrational as a result of the panic and chaos that usually accompany these scenarios.
