Letters to the Editor: Exploring constructive ways forward for Grand Bahama


Today, there exists an unprecedented alignment of political, social, and economic need for positive change to unlock Grand Bahama’s potential.

Doing so, however, requires a new era of cooperation from all the island’s stakeholders and the current conflict only delays GBI’s desperately needed economic rejuvenation.

As one of Freeport’s early entrepreneurs, I understand why the Hawksbill Creek Agreement allowed the island to flourish and, later, what caused the island’s economic downturn. I believe we should now learn from the past, reintroduce positive precedents, and avoid past mistakes so that GBI can flourish once more.
