Kwasi Thompson said : “One of the most pressing and most anticipated current projects for Grand Bahama is the Bahamas port investments project, which encompasses the sale and full operation and restoration of the Grand Lucayan. It involves creation of a water park, it involves the rebirth of our cruise industry in Grand Bahama, it involves the increase in our airlift and a major injection in our transportation industry and an increase in our visitor count in Grand Bahama,” “Where we are now, we have been able to identify a partner who is well known to The Bahamas, who has done a number of developments inside The Bahamas and we have not just sold a hotel, but for the first time been able to create a linkage between the harbor and that major hotel to the island, creating a complete destination.

This really is about delivering on this commitment in providing a new destination for Grand Bahama. It has been announced that the Royal Caribbean cruise line and the ITM Group will develop the Freeport Harbour as a cruise port and will transform the Grand Lucayan resort and make it into a hotel and a theme park,” “Significant demand for both airlift and sealift to the destination is being created. Many speak to the economy of Grand Bahama and for years our economy has been challenged, our economy still remains challenged. But one of the things that we must do and we have done is to make the difficult decision to purchase the hotel, with an intention to sell the hotel but to sell it to somebody who could create that destination that we so desperately needed” External link
