27th August 2008, Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Port Group Limited is delighted to see the progress that Ross University has made. Ross University has, within only a few weeks, been able to obtain prices from local Bahamian contractors and has actually awarded the contract for preparing their facilities in order to receive students beginning January 2009.

The bidding method was transparent and it is, of course, to be appreciated that the contractors invited were all Bahamian. No doubt this will be the beginning of the tremendous impact that the establishment of Ross University will have on the economy of Grand Bahama Island, and bodes well for the future of our island.

Mr. E. Christiansen, Chairman of Port Group Limited stated, “It has only been a month since the announcement of the Ross University Bahamas Campus, and so we are pleased to see that Ross is working aggressively to complete its temporary campus for January 2009, and has drawn on the pool of local Bahamian talent for this endeavour”.
