Ingraham In Baha Mar Talks
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham met with Chinese Ambassador Hu Dingxian at his office at Cable Beach yesterday, to discuss the much-touted Baha Mar project weeks ahead of a parliamentary vote on the project’s controversial labor issue.
Leader of Government Business in the House of Assembly Tommy Turnquest, confirmed that the Ingraham administration intends to bring the labor resolution to Parliament on September 8.
Since the announcement from the Cabinet Office late last month that the government of the People’s Republic of China had approved the Baha Mar deal, Baha Mar officials have been meeting with officials from the prime minister’s office to answer questions about the project.
Turnquest said the MPs would be allowed to express their views on the labor issue before the government makes a final determination.
If a majority of MPs take issue with that component, he said the government would have to take that into consideration prior to making its decision.Baha Mar
