Statement from the Leader of the Progressive Liberal Party
On the passing of Sir Sol Kerzner
For Immediate Release
21 March 2020
I am saddened to learn of the passing of Sir Sol Kerzner.
He was a visionary, a business icon and a towering figure in the tourism and travel industry, not only in The Bahamas but internationally. He is widely credited with transforming the Bahamian tourism product, strengthening the country’s brand as a premier tourism destination while contributing significantly to the growth and development of the local economy.
The industry has lost a giant and his passing brings to an end a significant era in Bahamian tourism.
He left an indelible impression on our number one industry and we therefore thank him for his service.
On behalf of the Progressive Liberal Party, I extend heartfelt condolences to the Kerzner family. May he rest in peace.
