"The Bahamas Chamber should be helping business encouraging more regulation, taxation and bureaucracy"
- May 15, 2017 - 12:38:56 PM
On Thursday past (May 11,2017), the CEO of the Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce and Employers’ Confederation was lamenting that people renting
their homes through Airbnb should be regulated.
His concerns seem
directed more to closing the home rental industry than regulating it
because hotel occupancy is down. Either way, proposing closing them or
regulating them, is not the purview of the Chamber of Commerce.
groups like Airbnb provide as much safety through market regulation and
oversight to make the renters accountable as the Ministry of Tourism
does with “regulating” hotels here...

Thousands of Bahamians presented themselves to vote in the advance poll
on May 3, 2017 in New Providence, Grand Bahama, and numerous cities
including Atlanta, London, and Beijing. In New Providence, the only
polling station -- Kendal G.L. Isaacs Gymnasium -- opened 80 minutes
late. There were two lines with mixed constituencies, all entering
through the same doors with no designated exit.
Poor planning by
the Parliamentary Registration Department led to voters spending over
three hours in line. We have heard reports of registered voters --
including students abroad who traveled to the nearest consular offices
-- being turned away because their names were not on the register...
