BAHAMAS AMBASSADOR TO THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CHINA RESPONDS TO MEDIA REPORTS ABOUT AGRICULTURE AND MARINE RESOURCES PROJECT
In pursuit of my responsibilities as Ambassador to China I have engaged in vigorous discussions within China to generate new economic activity for The Bahamas. The objective is to attract and create new activities and opportunities for Bahamians and our country.
The issue that has raised attention in the local media is along those lines. I sought and received permission from the Minister responsible for Agriculture and Fisheries merely to continue dialogue and to prepare reports on the economic possibilities in China.
That is what happened. We are presently evaluating the possibilities in China. No report or proposal has been submitted to the Minister of Foreign Affairs or Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries or any other Minister of the Government of The Bahamas.
