National Development Plans Talks Begin in Grand Bahama


Freeport, The Bahamas – Two members of the National Development Plan (NDP) committee travelled to Grand Bahama on Tuesday for a series of forums as a part of the first phase of their mission. Nicola Virgil-Rolle (right), Director of Economic Development and Planning, along with Samantha Rolle (left), Project Officer in the Office of the Prime Minister, discussed the objectives of the committee and what type of feedback is needed from residents in order to compile a comprehensive 25-year plan for the country.

Following the 20-minute presentation, residents were encouraged to ask questions for clarity. It is expected the plan will be completed by the end of 2015. Shown is the forum held for Central Grand Bahama on Tuesday. (BIS Photo/Andrew Miller)
