12/1

THE BAHAMAS COULD BENEFIT TO THE TUNE OF$10 MILLION ANNUALLY WHEN ROYAL CARIBBEAN’S ALLURE OF THE SEAS SAILS INTO NASSAU’S PORT THIS MONTH. THE CRUISE WILL CARRY ROUGHLY 6,000 PASSENGERS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN CRUISE SPEND. TOGETHER WITH ITS SISTER SHIP-OASIS OF THE SEAS-CRUISE OFFICIALS ESTIMATE MORE THAN$4.5 MILLION IN HEAD TAX AND MORE THAN$20 MILLION WOULD HAVE BEEN SPENT AT LOCAL BUSINESSES BY MID-2011.

WELL, THE USUAL HIKE IN AIRLINE TRAVEL DURING THIS TIME OF YEAR HAS LED TO INCREASED DECEMBER BOOKINGS FOR BAHAMASAIR. MANAGING DIRECTOR OF THE AIRLINE HENRY WOODS TELLSGUARDIAN BUSINESSTHAT THERE HAS BEEN NO SLOWDOWN IN THE AMOUNT OF BAHAMIANS TRAVELING TO THE U.S. TO DO HOLIDAY SHOPPING. HE IS NOW ENCOURAGED BY THE NUMBER OF PASSENGERS ALREADY PLANNING THEIR END OF YEAR TRIPS.

AND FINALLY, BAHAMIAN FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS ARE AGGRESSIVELY WOOING LATIN AMERICA FOR HIGH NET WORTH INDIVIDUALS. BRAZIL RECENTLY SAW THE’LANDFALL’OF ARGUABLY THE LARGEST BAHAMIAN CONTINGENT TO DATE THIS PAST WEEK.

APPROXIMATELY 25 BAHAMIAN PROFESSIONALS ACCOMPANIED THE BAHAMAS FINANCIAL SERVICES BOARD TO THAT COUNTRY. IT’S ALL A PART OF A PLAN TO SHOW BRAZILIAN PLAYERS JUST WHAT THE BAHAMAS HAS TO OFFER.

THAT’S BEEN YOUR C-FAL BUSINESS REPORT. I’M INDERIA SAUNDERS.
