At the State of the Tourism Industry Conference (SOTIC), Hubert A Minnis, the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, said that the tourism industry has the potential to get better in the country.

“We must also be known as a global centre of excellence for all aspects of tourism development,” said Minnis.

He announced that the government recently launched the Small Business Development Centre as “the training and education of a new generation of entrepreneurs is vital in helping our citizens and economies to garner greater economic benefits from tourism.”
