The Honourable Khaalis Rolle, Minister for Investments in the Office of the Prime Minister, visited Abaco on August 10 to assess some of the investment opportunities that are currently available on Abaco. He began his tour with Baker’s Bay Golf and Ocean Club to see how their project has progressed over the years and to see what opportunities are available there.
“Baker’s Bay is doing very well,” Min. Rolle said. “They are on schedule to close $200 million worth of sales this year, and it indicates that there is activity going on and that even in a difficult economy, people are still spending money.”
His next visit was to Treasure Sands Club, which is owned by Tim Blakeley. There is presently a proposal to the government to allow the expansion of their beach club and restaurant to a boutique hotel.
“We’re very excited about these types of opportunities, and that’s why we personally come down to look at them, talk to the developers and see how best [the] government can position themselves to support these developments,” he expressed.
