The Bahamas: PM Supports Freeport Container Port Development

PM Supports Freeport Container Port Development

The Bahamas Prime Minister the Right Honourable Perry Gladstone Christie said Monday that he is in discussions with the operators of the Freeport Container Port, with a view to a possible $250 million expansion of that multi-million dollar facility.

He pointed out that this major expansion is expected to result in some one million additional containers passing through Freeport annually.

He drew attention to the fact that many other Caribbean countries are looking at increasing or starting up a container port operation, particularly with the expansion of the Panama Canal soon to be completed.
