Background on the The Bahamas Economic Summit:

The severity of the global economic slowdown is well documented. It has exerted and will continue to exert downward pressure on our economic performance.

This economic crisis presents us with an unprecedented opportunity to:

  1. Bring our country together;
  2. Address systemic weaknesses in our economy; and
  3. Make tough decisions, which might be politically inexpedient, but are in the national interest.

Come and hear Mr. Nairn present his case for organising the summit.
