A secretive, foreign investor has leased or purchased all available Crown Land south of Marsh Harbour. The deal was finalized earlier in March with plans for a sprawling hotel and resort complex. The deal is being brokered by a businessman familiar with Abaco, one Mr. Adam Finkle.
In an agreement between the Bahamian, Japanese and Chinese Governments, a whaling operation is set to be headquartered at the Chinese-constructed North Abaco Port (NAP) north of Coopers Town. The Bahamas has opened its waters to a billionaire, foreign investor who will bring in Japanese scientists to train Abaconians how to hunt whales.
