PM delivers budget
communication

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

WITH a projected economic
growth rate of 6.5 per cent and
an estimated recurrent revenue
of. $1.345 billion for the
2006/2007 fiscal year, the
Bahamas has reached “a take-
off point into what could be the
longest, highest and most sub-
stantial economic expansion of
our history,” Prime Minister
Perry Christie announced yes-
terday.

Delivering the 2006/07 bud-
get communication in parlia-
ment yesterday morning, Mr

Christie said that the Bahamas

government and international

rating agencies all agree that |

the Bahamas’ economic growth
is steadily increasing and
expected to reach. new heights
in the next two years,

The prime minister said that
the estimated recurrent revenue
intake has increased by 11.1 per
cent over the 2005/06 provi-
sional out-turn of $1,212 billion.

In addition to these figures,
analysts also project that the
volume of inward investment

will amount to at least $8 bil- '

lion over the next few years, he
said.
“Tn relation to the size of the

economy, this is a scale of

inward investment without par-
allel anywhere in the world. The
volume of investment is well in
excess of the 2005 GDP of the
Bahamas of $5.9 million,” he
said.

The country’s: economic
growth, he said, is largely the
result of government’s success
in attracting productive invest-
ment in tourism projects “in vir-
tually every major island of the

Bahamas and from my govern-
ment’s careful stewardship of
this economic, expansion the
likes to which are without
precedent.”

Mr Christie said he expects
the capital inflow to further
strengthen: in 2006 and 2007
with the Baha Mar project com-
ing on stream and the construc-
tion of two new hotels in New
Providence, as well as the accel-
eration of the investment pro-

jects planned for the major |

inhabited Family Islands.

“Economic growth is increas-
ing steadily each year and will
be 5.8 per cent in 2006 as com-
pared with 2.3 per cent in 2002
when we entered office, or 0.8
per cent in the previous year
2001,” he said.

Citing the most recent data
from the International Mone-
tary Fund (IMF), Mr Christie
said that the economic growth
rate for the year 2005/2006 is
projected to be at 4.7 per cent.

For 2006 the growth rate is
estimated to be at 5.8 per cent,
for the fiscal year 2006/2007 at
6.5 per cent, for 2007/08 at 6.7
per cent and in 2008/09 at 5.6
per cent.

“These overlapping projec-
tions strongly suggest that the
growth rate of the Bahamian
economy started to accelerate
in the latter part of 2005 and
will continue to accelerate
through the whole of 2006.

“In fact, the IMF projections
show a growth rate of 6.7 per
cent for 2007/08 so it is clear
that the IMF accepts the accel-
eration of the economy right

through the next two fiscal years ~

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE massive $18 million
jump in-expenditure in the

" Office of the Prime Minister is

expected to become a matter of
serious debate.

FNM Deputy leader Brent
Symonette said that such dis-
crepancies will be painstakingly
scrutinised over the course of
the upcoming budget debate.

Expenditure within the office

of the Prime Minister has

jumped from just under $5 mil-
lion in 2005/2006 to almost $23
million for 2006/2007.

This increase of more than
360 per cent from last year’s
estimates is by far the largest
single increase in any govern-
ment agency in this year’s bud-
get.

Minister.and Minister of

be subjected to a number of pay
cuts under the government’s
draft budget.

The 10 Bahamas ambas-
sadors will be paid $73,000 less
between them, the four high
commissioners $2,200 less and
the four consul-generals $45,000
less.

However, the salaries of some
ministry employees have been
significantly increased.

For example, the combined
salary of the seven first secre-
taries in the ministry has more
than doubled; they will share
$152,000 between them, up
from $71,000 the year before.

The combined salary of the
two senior protocol officers has
also more than doubled in a
year — from $29,000 to $63,000.

The same is true of the com-
bined salary of the two assis-
tant protocol officers, which has
risen from $22,550 to $45,800.

THE Ministry of Foreign
Affairs is aiming to increase
the country’s involvement in
regional concerns while
decreasing spending on many

? ‘wider international efforts,

budget figures suggest.

While ministry’s estimated
spending on the United
Nations has been virtually
sliced in half — from $500,000
the year before to $260,000 —
the estimated spending on
CARICOM initiatives has sig-
nificantly increased.

Proposed spending on
CARICOM’s Caribbean
Regional Secretariat has
almost doubled. In 2005/2006,
it was estimated at $1,041,000.
This year it is.estimated at
$2,059,300.

THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 2006, PAGE 3

But funds increased to regional initiatives



In addition, the Bahamas has
more than doubled its estimat-
ed spending on Caribbean
peace-keeping operations —
from $250,000 to $610,000.

Another increase of note is
the estimated spending on the
African, Caribbean and Pacif-
ic Group of States (ACP) com-
mon market — which rose from
$60,000 to $133,000.

The ministry also estimates
that it will spend more than
$93,000 on regional ventures
not previously in the budget -
$25,246 on the Caribbean
Knowledge and Learning Net-
work and $68,000 on the CARI-
COM Regional Organisation
for Standards and Quality.

One entry provides for
$175,000 to be spent o n
“regional operating machin-
ery,” an expense that has not
been in the budget in previous
years.

There are a number of esti-
mated increases in spending on
global initiatives, however
these are slight by comparison.

For example, the ministry is
estimating that it will spend
$500 more on the World Heath
Organisation than the previ-
ous year, $300 more on the
World Intellectual Property
Organisation and $500 more
on the International Commit-
tee of the Red Cross.

GOVERNMENT © sis
expected to spend $172 mil-
lion more in the 2006/2007
fiscal year than it did in the
previous year.

Giving the budget commu-
nication yesterday, Prime
Minister Christie said that
recurrent expenditure for the
coming fiscal year is estimat-
ed at $1,386 billion - an
increase of 14 per cent over
the last’s year recurrent esti-
mates of $1,214 billion.

Last year, government esti-
mated only a $39 million
increase over the previous
year’s recurrent expenditure.

Addressing the House of
Assembly, Mr Christie
explained that the major
increases, nditure are
going:towards priority areas,,
“which provide security for
persons, property and our
national frontiers.”

“More specifically these
services encompass the
police, the Defence Force,
the Immigration, and Cus-
toms departments and the
judicial system and the mea-
sures which provide employ-
ment opportunities and
which seek to integrate every
Bahamian more fully into
society,” he said.

The prime minister said
that these priorities also
include education and train-
ing, the Urban Renewal Pro-
gramme, disaster relief, hous-
ing, and social and health care
services provided by the state.

Some of the increases are:

e 15.4 per cent, or $14,4
million for the police - from
$93,9 million to $108,4 mil-
lion.

Fred Mitchell clouds Cuba iss

IN HIS explanation to the House of

Assembly on May 17, Foreign Affairs Min-
ister Fred Mitchell tried to justify his gov-
ernment’s vote for Cuba to be seated on the
UN Human Rights Council by showing that
the Ingraham government did the same in
1994.

Said Mr Mitchell: “I have also checked the

‘J~. records of when the Bahamas was a member

of the United Nations Economic and Social
Council called ECOSOC. This was from the
period 1993 to 1995. During that time Cuba
was a member of the old Human Rights
Commission which was replaced by the pre-
sent Human Rights Council. The record
clearly shows that the instructions given to
the UN delegation by the side opposite (the
former Ingraham government) in 1994 were
- tosupport Cuba’s membership of the Com-
mission on Human Rights.”

This is the old story of misery desperate-
ly looking around for company. However,
when Mr Mitchell made this statement, he
_ must have known that he was clouding the

~ issue, and that his facts were off base.

-. Mr Mitchell is fully aware that one of the
many reasons the United Nations got rid of
the old Human Rights Commission was to
abolish its system of voting — the bloc vote.
And it was through the regional bloc vote —
where individual countries had no say, but
had to go along with whatever the region
decided — that rogue human rights abusers,
like Cuba, got to sit on the board.

“The elections process established for the
Human Rights Council broke new ground in
introducing competition, human rights
pledges and a small window of transparency
in what was traditionally a closed process
of vote-trading controlled by the regional
bloc system,” said a Freedom House analy-
sis.
Therefore, in 1994 the Bahamas would
have had no individual vote. The vote was
controlled by the bloc. The May 9th vote
this year was the first time that coutiiries
had the opportunity to cast a direct and indi-
vidual vote. The only problem this time was
that the ballot was secret. In hindsight it is
now realised that secrecy was a mistake — a
mistake because it “effectively shields gov-
ernments from accountability for their
. votes.” There are those who now think that
each country should be held accountable

for its vote, and. that the secrecy clause
should be abolished.

And so My Mitcheil’s vote, cast on behait
of his government, was the first time that
the Bahainas ever voted tor who should sit
on a human sights board. Hiding behind the
210 cast-

sition to any nalion i that: would deniy its citi-
zens the same freedoms that Bahamians
enjoy.

Mx Mitchell continues to confuse the US

-trade and travel embargo against Cuba with

the human rights vote. The two are not the

~ sameé. No one is questioning aay Bahamian’s

right to travel to, or trade with Cuba, or
even enjoy diplomatic relations. And con-
trary to what Mr Mitchell claimed in his
statement to the House, no Bahamian —
not even Mr Ingraham — considers the
Cuban people “odious.” However, what is
odious is how the Castro regime has denied
Cubans their universal human rights. What
is also odious is the fact that the Bahamas
would give its blessing to such a regime.

Mr Ingraham has never hidden the fact
that he does not agree. with America’s
embargo against Cuba. He will tell you that
when he was in Washington as prime minis-
ter he was quite frank with the President
and other congressmen about his position.
And they were equally frank with him. Many
of them agreed with his anti-embargo stance.
However, they were also aware that they
would lose the Florida and New Jersey vote
if they failed to support the embargo. And
so, it would be no surprise if the Ingraham
government voted against or even abstained
from voting in the UN on the embargo ques-
tion. Americans never questioned this coun-
try’s right to do so.

However, all freedom loving people
would question our support of a country
that does noi, in the government of its peo-
ple, recognise the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.

And so, Mr Mitchell, hurnan rights -—-

freedom of expression, conscience, religion,

movement, association, and the right to leave
and reiuiii fo one’s country — is the bottom

_ line. It has nothing tc de with trade and

diplomacy.

Historically, it is impossibic

to date ZNS radio as slarting

The equipmeni

1936. li took the first four
months of 1937 to acquire the
necessary parts and install the
equipment before the station

for the celebration of the 70th

Urban renewal in Acklins

EDITOR. The Tribune.

IT. IS with great disgust with how things: are being done in, Ack
lins with the urban renewal programme. which | believe was
designed to benefit the needy, elderly, the poor, etc., that I write this
letter.

The younger people on the island are benefiting much more than
the senior citizens. Some are given a complete new house while 6ld-
er people, like Mrs Estella Johnson of Lovely Bay, who lives in a
house which leaks when it rains, causing her bed_and other furni-
ture to get wet, is given very little attention.

1am kindly asking that those in authority revisit the old. séople’s
homes in Acklins and make a greater effort to see that these peo
ple’s homes are in a proper condition to withstand heavy storms
such as hurricanes. As you know we are almost in the hurricane’sea- :
son and we would not like to see our old people who toiled so hard
to make our beautiful country the way it is today neglected. Aisc
we would not like to see our old people live ii such Sea con
ditions.

It is my hope that this letter would capture the eyes ot someone
who cares about our old peopie. 1

Urban Renewal programme should look out for our needy anc
old people first.

In brief —

Generator
shutdown
caused
blackout

THE weekend power out-
ages that caused outrage
among residents of western
New Providence were the
result of an emergency shut-
down of a large generator
according to BEC.

The Bahamas Electricity
Corporation (BEC) apolo-
gised to its customers for any
inconvenience caused by the
outages.

“We are diligently working
toward firming up our spare
plant capacity, which will
reduce the likelihood of any
similar recurrence,” said the
company in a statement.

“The events that occurred
on Sunday, May 28, resulted
from the emergency shut-
down of a large generator
which on its own would not
have resulted in such an
extended power outage,” thé
statement explained.

“Unfortunately, the gener-
ator outage coincided with
other planned outages,
which were forced to be
extended due to unforeseen
circumstances.

“The result was that the
power outage lasted until the
return to service of the gen-
erator that was off-loaded
under emergency condi-

_ tions,” it said. —

BEC said staff continues
to work diligently to improve
the company’s electricity
‘product and minimise any
inconvenience to customers.

Minister

m@ By MARK HUMES

SIX days after votes were cast
in the Bahamas Hotel Catering
and Allied Workers Union’s
election, Immigration and
Labour Minister Shane Gibson
hopes that a meeting scheduled
for today with the heads of I Fa
Justice and The Rainbow Team
will bring this stalemate to an
end.

As late as last night, there was
still no official leadership for the
BHCAWU, as a recount of the
votes cast for the presidency sug-
gested a tie between incumbent
Pat Bain and I Fa Justice’s Roy
Colebrooke.

In light of the controversy sur-
rounding the election and its out-
come, Minister Gibson. said he
has a meeting scheduled with the
two leaders vying for the top post
of the BHCAWU.

Calling this meeting an

Gibson said, “I want to give

Levislation ‘does exist’ for
community service sentences

@ By TIFFANY GRANT |
Tribune Staff Reporter —

NATIONAL Security Minis-
ter Cynthia Pratt said she has
been advised that despite claims
to the contrary, legislation does
exist allowing magistrates to
hand down community service
sentences to petty offenders.

However, Mrs Pratt said she

was also informed that an
administration to oversee the
community service programme
has yet to be created.

On Monday, human rights
activist Paul Moss said! the fact
that the Bahamas has the
world’s eighth-highest per capi-

’ ta prison rate is “no surprise”, as

many petty offenders are incar-
cerated when they should be giv-
en alternative sentences.
Prison Superintendent Dr
Elliston Rahming agreed, say-

ing there are 250 petty offenders



@ NATIONAL Security
Minister and Deputy PM
Cynthia Pratt

at Her Majesty’s Prison who should not be there.
Both men put the problem down to lack of legislation allow-
ing for petty offenders to carry out constructive, community:

based tasks.

“This would help so much if we. can get that large number of
them on community service,” Mrs Pratt agreed.

“They can do so much more out here to give back to this com-
munity after getting involved in petty crime, than if you just lock
them away and at the end of the month’s time they are right
back out doing the same thing,” she said.

Mrs Pratt pointed out that the recidivism rate in Mexico is 10
per cent — whereas in the Bahamas, it is almost 70 per cent.

She explained that the Mexican government has created sev-
eral programmes through which prisoners can re-enter society

equipped with skills.

“Somehow, some way, we have to be able to demand that
these young boys in particular — young girls as well,:but most-
ly the young boys get into criminal behaviour — can receive a

skill.

“Tf they drop out of school they (must) end up with some skill
whether it is Carpentry, masonry or plumbing, so that they
would be able to make a living for themselves without return-

‘ing or ending up in the life of crime,” said Mrs Pratt.

case,” he continued, “then, of
course, right after we will be
releasing the official results.”
The validity of the elections
were called into question when
unofficial results announced to
stakeholders on the night of the
election differed from those
announced by ZNS. Union lead-
ers were further infuriated when
they later learned that the Direc-
tor of Labour, Mr Harcourt
Brown, had removed several bal-
lot boxes from the “protective
custody” of the police without
the stakeholders present
Addressing the mixup, Mr
Gibson said that he was very dis-
appointed that the trade union
leaders would call into question
his staff’s integrity after the elec-
tion, saying: “They were the ones
who held ballots for agency shop,
election of officers, and anything

tions scheduled to take
place over the weekend to
ensure that there is a high

events. He also urged
members of the public not
to incite or engage in any
violent altercations.

Police are also cautioning

they feel like “something is just
within their grasp, and they don’t
know what is going to happen.”

The Minister said that he

knows that what is transpiring

‘ now between the two groups and

its leadership is not about the
process, but about whether or
not a team is declared the winner
or the loser.

As to the possibility of aire-
election, Mr Gibson said that
there must first be grounds for a
re-election, and if any group feels
that it has such grounds, ofce
the results are certified, it ¢an
take its case to the courts. |

However, he said all he wdnt-
ed was for them to “give the
process a chance to work.”

FNM rally - aftermath





Rally ‘a flop’, says Righ ,

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

THE FNM rally on Tuesday
night was “an obvious flop”,
according to PLP chairman
Raynard Rigby.

Mr Rigby said the opposition
party was “scraping the bottom
of the barrel” for issues.

“This is not surprising since
they obviously have no issues
that resonate with the Bahamian
people. It is a pathetic effort for
a supposedly major political
organisation to spend thousands
of dollars of their money in a
public meeting to say absolutely
nothing. It was obviously disap-
pointing for even supporters of
the FNM,” he said.

‘According to Mr Rigby,
every point the FNM attempted

‘to make was a repetition of “the
same old tired and discredited

logic which everyone knows is
nothing more than an attempt
by the FNM and its new old
leader to regain political power
at ariy price.

According to Mr Rigby, all
Mr Ingraham did was name
“the very things that he himself
promised during his adminis-
tration and failed to deliver.”

He gave the example of reli-
able potable water to New Prov-



idence and the Family Islands.

Mr Rigby said the former
FNM administration put empty
water pipes into the ground in
Inagua and promised the com-
munity potable water.

“Tn fact, the pipes had been in
the ground so long with no
water, many of them had to be
replaced by the PLP at a cost of
more than a million dollars.

Mr Rigby also gave the exam-
ple of the peivaliegion of
BaTelCo.. . :

He said it was outrageous for
Mr Ingraham to raise this point
after wasting more than $i40
million “in a rash, ill-judged,
irresponsibly timed and ulti-
mately failed effort to privatise
the now BTC.”

He also asked how the for-
mer prime minister could dare
to “raise the spectre” of ade-
quate infrastructure.

“Bahamians will not forget that

. his FNM left main runway 1432

at Nassau International Airport
acknowledged in the industry as a
‘disaster waiting to happen’. His
government’s incompetence
almost crippled the tourism
industry. The PLP had to spend
$40 million to rescue the nation
from Mr Ingraham’s neglect of
the airport runway,” he said.

PLP ‘will refute Ingraham’ |

Ais



IN their haste to use politics to distract the public onthebve:,
of a national budget, the FNM’s attack on government’s

enforcement of immigration iaws comes perilously close tc
“national disloyalty” according to Raynard Rigby.

The PLP chairman said it would be wise for the FNM to act
as a mature political organisation rather than a a.group, that
would do anything to win the reins of the governinent: «

“The PLP in government is inarguably committed to pro-
tecting the borders and the national integrity of the Bahamas,

while maintaining the proper respect for the dignity and rights :

of all,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Mr Rigby said that in the days ahead, the PLP se its lead-
ers will refute every claim about the government’ s perfor-
mance made by party leader Hubert Ingraham and other
speakers at the FNM rally on Tuesday night.

“Now that election fever seems to have gripped the FNM’s
new old leader, we were somewhat amused to hear Mr Ingra-
ham speak of political panic when it is clearly that it is he who
is in a panic.

“Imagine calling a major meeting for the express and pub-

licly-promised purpose of announcing and unveiling what we ©
were told would be an irresistible list of political candidates. °

only to whimper like a failed and fizzled firecracker that the list
ain’t ready,” Mr Rigby said.

Ingraham claims |
FNM supporter |
victimised by PLP

@ By CHESTER ROBARDS

FNM leader Hubert Ingra-
ham in his speech on Tuesday
night claimed that the PLP gov-
ernment victimised an FNM
supporter from Acklins
employed at the National Insur-
ance Board (NIB) because of
his political perspective.

The alleged victim, Stephen
Wilson, a grade one clerk at the
NIB, told The Tribune yesterday
that the claim of victimisation
made by Mr Ingraham was true.

“A clerk whom they have
decided is too much of an FNM
is being victimised by the full
strength of the government,”
said Mr Ingraham.

“That’s what it is, victimisa-
tion,” said Wilson.

He insists that two PLP “gen-
erals” in Acklins suggested to
PLP officials that he be moved
to the NIB in Nassau; but after
continuous pressure on the gov-
ernment and a petition signed
by more than 180 supporters of
Mr Wilson, including former
Immigration Minister Loftus
Roker, he is finally being
returned to Acklins in July.

According to Mr Ingraham’s
speech, the director of the NIB
(Lennox McCartney) told him



STEVEN Wilson of The
National Insurance Board.

Tribune staff)

that the decision was deter-
mined above his level.

“All that to keep a man out of
Acklins; to keep a man from
going home,” said Mr Ingraham.

Mr Wilson explained that after
he was assured verbally in March
that he would be returned to his
former job post in Acklins, he
received a letter after five days of
working in Acklins telling him
he had to return to Nassau to
refill his position for at least one
year until someone qualified
could be hired.

A letter to Mr Wilson from
Ms Burrows’ desk outlined the
denial of his.request and the



package offered to him upon his
return, which included compen-
sation for relocation expenses, a
housing allowance of $1,500 dol-
lars a month, a NIB vehicle and
an advance of $2,170 dollars for
the period for May to June.
“That’s more than $20,000. He
makes less than that in a year.
Oh, and they have offered him
one of NIB’s cars to use while he

is in Nassau,” Mr Ingraham said. |

Ina letter of retort, Mr Wilson

reminded management that he - :

had only been hired temporarily
at the NIB Headquarters until
he attained his associate’s degree
and that he had met the person
he thought was hired to relieve
him of his position.

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

FNM Chairman Desmond
Banister said the massive

‘turnout of young people at

the party’s rally on Tuesday
was evidence that the next
generation has returned to
the FNM.

He said that thousands of
young faces could be seen in
.the crowd.

“The young people were
lured away by the false
promises of the PLP and
now they are seeing that gov-
ernment has nothing to offer
but empty promises,” Mr
Bannister said.

“At one point I tried to
get to the back of the crowd.
I have never seen it like that
before. I mean, I could not
get to the back of the crowd
and after the rally I sat down
just marvelled at what I
saw,” he said.

He said supporters were
excited by the quality of
leadership displayed and by
the slate of progressive
young speakers.

Ms Smed has still not been giv-

Confused and at a standstill,

When she approached the

“Everyone thought it was a
good idea,” she said.

As Labour Day
approaches, its cele-

brations will be marred by the
fact that unemployment in the
Bahamas remains unacceptably
high.

The last labour report pub-
lished by the Department of
Statistics pegged unemployment
at 10.2 per cent, meaning that
almost 20,000 Bahamians
remained out of work.

The Department conducted
its new household labour sur-
vey in May of this year. It is
likely to find that the unem-
ployment rate now stands at
about nine per cent.

This would be an. improve-
ment but hardly enough to sat-
isfy Prime Minister Perry
Christie’s boast that his eco-
nomic policies will create “more
jobs than people for those jobs”.

This persistently high unem-
ployment rate must be a terrible

‘ irritant to the Christie admin-

istration, given that the econo-
my of the Bahamas has enjoyed
robust growth over the last four
years and given that the admin-
istration has announced billions
of dollars in new investments.

' The high rate of unemploy-
ment, however, should not be
surprising because “jobless
growth” is a very real phenom-
enon and announcements of
investments are not the same
as investments.

How can the economy grow
and jobs not be created? Let’s
look at three examples. First,
let us suppose that a hotel had a
net income of $100,000 in one
year and then its net income
increases to $110,000 the fol-
lowing year; this would repre-
sented a 10 per cent increase in
net income.

Now let’s suppose that it
enjoyed this growth by slightly
increasing its room rate or occu-
pancy level but not its staff lev-
el. Here you have growth with-
out job creation. If this happens
with many companies, you get
economic growth without job
creation in the economy, all oth-
er things being equal.

A second example is when a
rise in crime leads to more
spending on security equipment.
The additional spending on
security equipment may lead to

ment.

They thought the same would



Billions and billions of dol-
lars in investments should
translate into an economy on
fire where job creation is so
robust that it literally puts
upward pressures on wages
because truly there are more
jobs than people for jobs. That
is simply not the case.



Its increased spending results
in economic growth but if it
does not hire new people then
the result is jobless growth.

| he reality is that many
‘A. businesses in the

Bahamas have been catching up
from the economic lull that
kicked in in 2001 and their
growth has been more a mat-

ter of increased net income

from better operating revenue
as opposed to business expan-
sion leading to new job creation.

Many Bahamians came to put
a great deal of stock in the
prime minister’s frequent
announcements regarding the
signing of this heads of agree-
ment and that. They expected
that the jobs would be abun-
dant from these billions and bil-
lions of dollars of “unprece-
dented” investments in the
country.

In the past, under the Ingra-
ham administration, it was the
norm for an annotncement to
be made, say, today and for

happen under the Christie
administration. The problem is,
however, for all the investments
touted by the government, as
one moves about the country,
one cannot see economic activ-
ity that equals those announce-
ments.

Billions and billions of dol-
lars in investments should trans-
late into an economy on fire
where job creation is so robust
that it literally puts upward
pressures on wages because tru-
ly there are more jobs than peo-
ple for jobs. That is simply not
the case.

On the ground, the Bahami-
an economy does not look like
one that has been inundated
with foreign or domestic capital.
In fact, Bahamians have to be

grateful that high liquidity in .

the banking sector resulting
from years of credit restraint
and a long-standing unfulfilled
demand for home-ownership
continues to float the construc-
tion industry and give life to our
economy.

cient to reduce unemployment
in such a way as to satisfy politi-
cians and voters alike.

If the unemployment rate is
to go down at a faster rate, the
government’s economic policy
must be more targeted and
aggressive. Business people,
foreign and local, must have the
government making decisions
in a much more: decisive and
timely manner than it is cur-
rently doing. It simply takes too
long to get a decision on a pro-
posal that the government must

doing business. After all, people
walk in their establishments dai-

A his recent mini-con-
vention Prime Minis-..

ter Christie said that his gov-'.
ernment had created enough’
jobs for anyone who truly want-:
ed to work. This was an alarm-
ing statement from the prime,
minister.

Could it really be that the.
thousands of Bahamians who
are jobless are really so simply
because they do not truly want
to work? Is it the case that
these thousands of people pre-
fer to have bills mounting, col-
lectors calling and their homes
in danger of foreclosure sim-
ply because they do not desire
to work? Is this what has hap-
pened to the 1,600 Royal Oasis
workers, many of whom
remain unemployed today? Is
this what is happening with the
young men and women who
contact me daily looking for a
job? Is this what the problem is
for that mother who ended up
in the hospital with heart pal-
pitations because she was fret-
ting about not being able to
find a job?

Are all these people simply
lacking a desire to work and
therefore not applying for the
thousands of jobs that are out
there? A cussin’ man would
have let a couple go just now
but I’m not one of them. | sim-
ply say that this is nonsense!

There are not enough jobs in
the country for thousands ‘of
Bahamians, not in terms of.
numbers and not in terms of
types. That is why the unem-
ployment rate remains high.
The government’s economic
policies and the country’s eco-
nomic performance over the
past several years have not been
able to solve this problem. It is
as simple as that!

Perhaps if Prime Minister
Christie embraces this fact ‘as
opposed to live in denial of it,
he can tweak his policies to
achieve better results. Until
then, the unemployed remain
jobless.

Shireen’s message was conveyed
with a powerful voice, and inter-
woven with drama, detailed sta-
tistics and humour.

The speech competition was
her first.

Second place went to Kryst-
nell Storr of St Anne’s High
School and Anastarcia Huyler of
Bishop Michael Eldon. High

The event was held at the

Dundas Centre for the Perform-
ing Arts on Mackey Street.

Humbled by the victory,
Shireen said: “i feel blessed and
privileged and I thank God for
this talent and that I use it. I feel
relieved actually. It has been a
long road and I’ve made it. I feel
great.”

She took the opportunity to
once again underscore the
importance of road safety. “Fol-

There were 67 traffic fatali-
ties last year and there have
been 17 so far this year.

The three top finishers
received $5,000, $3,000 and
$1,500 in scholarships respec-
tively to the college of their
choice.

All nine finalists were
rewarded with laptop comput-
ers, trophies and certificates.

Shireen said she is particular-
ly pleased with the fact that a
student from a public school
won.

She noted that negative com-
ments that are often made
about the public school system —
but she is testimony that all is
not lost.

“It shows that there is hope
and the future is looking
good,” said Shireen, who will
attend the College of the
Bahamas to study foreign lan-
guages.

Doris Johnson principal
Geoffrey McPhee echoed her
sentiments. “The public school
system has always been doing
well, but it is just now that peo-
ple are taking notice of us. We
have a number of students in
the pipeline just like Shireen.
You'll be hearing some more
from us,” he said.

The chief judge for the com-
petition was former Toastmas-

main shareholders - the family of the late Edward St George and

the Haywards earlier this year over Freeport’s future direc-:

tion and the strategy to be employed.

The Tribune had received reports that relations between Mr
Francis and the two families were less than harmonious two
months ago.

When interviewed by this newspaper at the time, Mr Francis

said there was a "healthy debate" taking place within the Grand
Bahama Port Authority on devising the best strategy to max-
imise Freeport's economic potential.

“It's absolutely critical we have that debate right now," Mr
Francis said of internal discussions on Freeport's future devel-
opment. "I'm satisfied with the results of that debate up to
now. It's been very useful."

Describing the relationship with the Hayward and St George

families as "continuing to be what it should", Mr Francis said:
"With our shareholders we want to see a very aggressive devel-
opment of the business here, and we intend to deliver that.
We have a new business plan which is ready."

If Mr Francis departs, the move is likely to be greeted with
dismay by some on Grand Bahama, since many saw him as
the ideal man to take over from the late Mr St George.

Apart from being Bahamian, Mr Francis - as a former Cen-

tral Bank of the Bahamas governor and ex-international banker. : i
- had the contacts and international reputation to attract com-'
panies and industries that would have been a good fit’ for.

It said the proposal to create
a national health insurance
scheme managed by the NIB is
still not fully developed and its
macro-economic impact will
need to be “carefully
assessed”.

Nevertheless, the mission
agreed that higher involvement
in the health sector will be ben-
eficial for the economy and
supported the government’s
view that the scheme should be
fully funded and should not
compromise the country’s own
collection of funds.

During his budget communi-
cation Mr Christie said that on
the “most crucial issues of -
thinking” government was very
close to that of the IMF.

“Such differences as there
may, be are not substantial and
relate more to matters of prac-
ticality and timing rather than
to policy disagreements,” Mr

Christie said.

Generally, the IMF said that
he Bahamas’ near term eco-
omic outlook is favourable
nd that the country’s econom-
¢ activity has intensified, infla-
‘ion has remained low and
competitiveness in the tourism
‘ctor has been maintained.
However, it said that the key

challenge will be to continue to
strengthen the fiscal and mone-

tary policy framework and to
press forward with structural
reforms in order to enhance. '
the economy’s resilience as *« '

Mr Gibson said, “that washed

Sone ais fa COB |

THE College of the
Bahamas’ office of alumni
affairs hosted the class of 2006
and other alumni at,a cocktail
reception on Saturday.

The event, part of the institu-

‘tion’s week of graduation activ-

ities, was held in the courtyard
of COB’s culinary ‘hospitality
and management institute.

Alumni and friends of the
College of the Bahamas danced
to the Royal Bahamas Pop
Band, networked with other
alumni and enjoyed fine cuisine
provided by COB’s award-win-
ning chefs and culinary students.

The Class of 2006 made a
contribution to the Alumni
Gifts for Advancement Project
that was launched in March
2006. The class donated
$1,974.00, some of the funds
raised from the 2006 graduation
memory book. .

The project was launched
with a $10,000 pledge from
members of The College of The
Bahamas’ Alumni Hall of Fame
— Bishop Neil Ellis, Larry Gib-
‘son, Laura Pratt-Charlton,
Tanya McCartney and Vernice
Walkine.

Tanya Northeast, chair of the
Class (centre) along with other
members of the Class made the
presentation to Alumni Asso-
ciation president, Donald Saun-
ders and vice president, Lyn-
den Maycock.

’ The COB Alumni Associa-
tion president, Donald Saun-
ders, urged alumni to become
involved in the College of The
Bahamas, particularly as it
moves toward becoming a Uni-
versity.

Mr Saunders said it was now
their opportunity to ensure that
good education is available for
succeeding generations of
Bahamians.

COB council chairman,
Franklyn Wilson and acting
president, Dr Rhonda Chip-
man-Johnson, echoed Mr Saun-
ders’ call for involvement and
participation. Dr Chipman-
Johnson also outlined for alum-
ni ways in which they could
assist the College of the
Bahamas.

THE International Mone-
tary Fund (IMF) has projectéd
that the Bahamas’ real GDP.
growth rate will. increase to 4.3
per cent in the fiscal year.2006-
2007, up from the 3.4 per cent
growth recorded last-year, with
the Prime Minister yesterday
describing this nation’s eco-

nomic prospécts as “unprece-

dented”.

Although the IMF said
utemployment in the Bahamas
remained at 10.25 per cent in
2005, Mr Christie talked up-his
government’ s economic
achievements in yesterday’s
Budget presentation, with one
éye.on the upcoming election.

But unemployment
still over 10%

In nominal terms, the
Bahamas’ GDP growth is
expected to increase from 4.7
during 2005-06: to 6.5 per cent
in 2006-07 and 6.7 per cent in
2007-2008. The nominal mea-
surement of GDP growth
strips out the impact of infla-
tion.

Looking forward, the IMF
also projected that there would
be slight declines in both real
and nominal GDP in the years
following 2007-2008, falling to
3.5: per.cent and 5.6 per cent

THE International Mone-
tary Fund (IMF) has urged

| the Government to set a tar-

get of reducing the fiscal
deficit by 0.5 per cent of
GDP every fiscal year, which
would enable it to achieve a

‘| balanced budget in 2010-2011
and hit its debt management |

goals.

The Government’s pro-
jected 2006-2007 GFS fiscal
deficit of 1.9 per cent would
achieve the 0.5 per cent of
GDP reduction goal, given

‘that the projected fiscal

| deficit for 2004-2005 is now

likely to be 2.4 per cent.

In its latest findings on the
Bahamian economy, the IMF
said that while it approved of

the Government setting a tar-

get for reducing the central
government debt to GDP

| ratio to 30 per’ cent in the



| key first step”

medium term, “the debt ratio
has continued to increase,
notwithstanding the stronger
growth and the reduction in
the fiscal deficit”.

| By targeting a 0.5 percent -
| reduction in the fiscal deficit

per annum, the Fund said the
Government would be able
to achieve its target central
government debt to. GDP

| ratio by 2013.

The IMF described as “
towards this
a$ bringing the fiscal deficit
below 2 per cent of GDP
during the 2007-2007 fiscal
year, something it has pro-
jected for the GFS deficit
measurement. .

This measurement, though,

strips out the costs of debt -

redemption, which in 2006-
2007 are projected to increase
by $60 million to $103 mil-
lion compared to the 2005-
2006 fiscal period: Including
debt redemption, the total
deficit will be $228 million -

| higher than the $186 million

Fund says ‘critical’
to hold firm on

public sector wages |

projected for 2005-2006.
The Fund said: “The mis-
sion estimates that new fis-
cal measures yielding about
0.5 per cent of GDP will be
needed, which could include
a number of policy steps that
are already under considera-

tion: a reduction in customs -

duty exemptions, hikes. in
business licences for offshore
firms, higher excise taxes for
tobacco and liquor, increas-
ing the ceiling for property
taxes, and rationalising trans-

’ fers to public corporations.

“A well-articulated action
plan to introduce these mea-
sures would be very useful.”

Yet Prime Minister Perry
Christie yesterday reiterated

that the 2006-2007 Budget °

contained no new taxes, .a

position he has stuck to since. '

his government came to. pow-
er in 2002, despite prodding
from the IMF.

In addition, he said the
2006-2007 Budget contained
no tax increases, claiming
that small rises in fees
charged for government ser-
vices were not the same as
tax increases.

The IMF mission, which
visited the Bahamas between
April 24 and May 1; said that
while the Government had
“slightly exceeded” its fiscal
deficit target for 2004-2005,

the one for 2005-2006 was”

likely to fall below the pro-
jected 2.75 per cent of GDP
goal for 2005-2006, ending at
2.4 per cent.

certed role in the development
of key IT infrastructure in the
Bahamas. The benefits in
establishing such an organisa-
tion, I believe, would extend
to government, and the busi-
ness community, as well as IT
professionals themselves.

Government

Governments around the
world are increasingly embrac-
ing information technology as
a tool to drive economic
growth through e- ~Business ini-
tiatives and legislation, as well
as a tool to deliver essential
government services to its citi-
zens through online e-Gov-

ernment initiatives. Recent e-
Business and e-Government
initiatives by the Bahamian
government are a clear indica-
tion that the Bahamas is head-
ing in the same direction.

The primary benefit that an
association of IT professionals
would provide government
would be to bring its combined
expertise to bear on these and
other information technology
initiatives, as well as act as an
advisory counsel that is not
biased to any one vendor or
consulting group.

I am convinced that by
including the IT professional
community at the early stages



Re aa

of these initiatives, the Gov-
ernment would not only save
time and money but also
ensure that a range of solutions
are considered.

Business Community

One of the key frustrations I
often hear from businesses
looking to hire an in-house IT
professional, or engage an out-
side IT provider, is that they
have no real way of knowing
just how suitable they are for
the work at hand. This situa-
tion is made even more diffi-
cult by the fact that there are
so many different qualifica-
tions for IT professionals.






































































By establishing a ‘registered’
list of IT professionals and
providers online, and creating
a mechanism for employers
and customers to rate the qual-
ity of the work performed by
those IT professionals or
providers, the association could
provide businesses with an
invaluable selection tool.
Those who consistently render
poor service would be identi-
fied, and those who render
excellent service would rise to
the top. An excellent example
of how this tool could work
can be found on
www.guru.com.

IT Professionals
One of the most enjoyable
things about the work I do is

that I often get the opportuni- -

ty to meet with IT profession-
als in both large and small
companies throughout the
Bahamas. More than anything
else, I am often surprised at
how little interaction IT pro-
fessiotials from one company
have with IT professionals
from another organisation.
What’s more, they are often
facing the same challenges but
without the benefit of each
other’s knowledge and expe-
riences.

In a very simple yet powerful
way, I believe the establish-
ment of an association of IT
professionals would create an
environment that encourages
and supports greater interac-
tion between IT professionals

Current account

deficit to hit 11.5%

B@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE rise in global oil prices
increased both inflation and
the Bahamas’ current account
deficit in 2005, the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund (IMF)
said. Although the impact is
expected to ease in 2006, the
current account deficit for this
year is projected to widen fur-
ther to 11.5 per cent.

In its latest consultation with
the Government, the IMF said
the current account deficit had
increased to 9 per cent of gross
domestic product (GDP) in
2005, “mainly reflecting the
surge in the oil import bill to 9
per cent of GDP”. This was 2.5
per cent higher than 2004. —

In addition, the Fund said
global oil prices increased the
average inflation rate to 2.25
per cent year-on-year in 2005,
compared to 1 per cent in 2004.
However, the inflation rate was
expected to ease to 1.75 per

IMF, from Page 1B

cent this year.

The IMF’s interim report
said 85 per cent of the
Bahamas’ current account
deficit was financed by private
capital inflows into the e¢ono-
my, largely. generated. from
various foreign | direct invest-
ment. projects. A $90 million
increase in the foreign curren-
cy reserves also helped finance
this.

The IMF said: “Following
the surge in credit and higher
demand for imports, net inter-
national reserves dipped in
2005 to the equivalent of 99
per cent of base money, but
have since then recovered and
currently stand at 105 per cent
of base money.

“Construction-related
imports and an additional
increase in the oil import bill
are projected to lead to a fur-
ther widening of the external
current account deficit in 2006
to 11.5 per cent of GDP per
cent, despite the expected

increase in tourism receipts.”

Credit extended to the pri-
vate sector increased by 14.25
per cent in 2005, compared to
growth of 6 per cent in 2004,
most of this going on construc-
tion, mortgages and personal
consumption.

However, credit growth
declined to an annualised rate
of 10.5 per cent in the 2006 first
quarter as bank liquidity
declined.

The IMF said non-perform-
ing loans fell to 4.5 per cent of
total loans in 2005, down from
5 per cent the previous year,
but average provisions
remained at only 45 per cent of
non-performing loans.

“Rapid credit growth caused
the ratio of bank liquid assets
to total deposits to decline,
with a few banks experiencing
temporary shortfalls in liquid-
ity requirements,” the IMF
said.

It added that high commer-
cial bank profits, standing at 3



ments in tax administration boosted interna-
tional trade tax and stamp tax collections, and
are projected to have raised the tax/GDP ratio
by. 1.75 per cent of GDP in 2005-2006.

»“However, the stronger revenue would be
partially offset by an increase in the wage bill
resulting from the public sector wage settle-
ments, and by transfers to finance hurricane
relief programmes, airport reconstruction and
losses of public companies.

“The deficit has been mainly financed domes-
tically, and central government debt is expected
to‘rise further to 38.75 per cent of GDP in mid-
2006, with total public debt reaching 48.5 per
cént.”

“And the IMF warned the Government that
“careful management” of public sector wages
was “essential for both fiscal discipline and
external competitiveness”.

“It said: “The central government wage bill is
expected to rise, to 10.5 per cent of GDP in fis-
cal 2005-2006. Although other Caribbean coun-
tries show higher ratios, this level is high by
international standards.

“If the wage rate keeps on growing at a fast
pace, it risks spilling over into the private sector,
eroding external competitiveness and hurting
the Bahamas’ ability to attract foreign invest-
ment. “The challenge will be to ensure that real
wages grow in line with productivity, and the
mission welcomes government’s recent efforts to
contain wage pressures.”

The IMF also urged the Government to look

at efficiency gains in the management of public —

enterprises.

It said: “Bahamasair and Water & Sewerage
incur losses to a large extent covered by the
Government. Further efforts to reduce costs
and adopt sound commercial practices in these
enterprises would provide room for well-tar-
geted subsidies.”

The Government was urged to make “faster _

progress” in privatising the Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC), and outsource
management of Bahamasair.

The Prime Minister yesterday said any dif-
ferences between the Government and the IMF
were on technicalities, rather than policies.

per cent of assets, showed
there was plenty of capacity to
increase provisioning, while the
Central Bank needed to ensure
“prudent credit and liquidity
management” even though
international reserves seemed
adequate.

On financial services regu-

lation, the IMF said a proposal ,
to merge all the supervisory

agencies into one to create a
super-regulator for the sector
had been forwarded to the
Cabinet, but such a body
would need “sufficient staff”
if it was formed.

The Fund encouraged the
Government to propose fur-
ther legislation to aid informa-

tion sharing with foreign bank .

supervisors and regulators.

It also backed the Govern-
ment’s plan to bring in “mini-
mum disclosure requirements”
for all Bahamas-based bank

and trust companies, and:con=\

THE Prime Minister said
yesterday that “major changes
in the culture of the public sec-
tor” will be required to cope
with the infrastructure
demands imposed by the
“seale” of tourism-related
investment projects.

In unveiling the 2006-2007
Budget, Perry Christie said the
demand for public services
and infrastructure from these
developments, especially in
the Family Islands, would cre-
ate “exceptional demands on
management of the public sec-
tor”.

He added that among those
on the frontline would be Per-
manent Secretaries and man-
agers at various government
ministries, plus the heads and
management executives at the
public utility corporations,
such as BEC.

They would be called upon
“to ensure that required pub-

THE Inteational Mone-
tary Fund (IMF) has urged
the Government to adjust
National Insurance Board
(NIB) contributions and
benefits as quickly as possi-
ble, as any delays in imple-
menting suggested reforms
would penalise future work-
ers and cause “more dras-
tic” changes.

In advising that the Gov-
ernment not delay on imple-
menting the Social Security
Reform Commission’s rec-
ommendations, the IMF said
it recommended, “an early
adjustment of contributions
and benefits, as the experi-
ence in other countries sug-
gests that delays would sim-
ply require more drastic
adjustments at a later stage,
and would impose an unfair
burden of adjustment on
future workers”.

- The IMF said the pro-
posed National Health
Insurance (NHI) scheme’s
macroeconomic impact
would need to be “carefully
-assessed”, although it sup-
ported the Government’s
contention ‘that greater
investment in healthcare
would benefit the Bahami-
an economy.

Prime Minister Perry
Christie in his Budget
address again reiterated the
Government’s commitment
to NHI, saying: “We are lay-

whole infrastructure provid-

In its consultation with the
Government earlier this
month, the International Mon-
etary Fund (IMF) said it had
to assess the fiscal impact of
the investment incentives it
provided. :
And the IMF added that it
welcomed plans to minimise
public spending in relation to
resort investments. "
“When going ahead with
the programmes, care will be
needed to contain fiscal pres-
sures from infrastructure
spending or tax concessions,
which could result in higher

National Health Insurance.”

He described the project,
as “one of the most impor-
tant healthcare reforms in:
our nation’s history”. ee

Meanwhile, the Prime,
Minister said he was plan-.
ning no changes to the
Bahamian tax system, which-
is presently a tax on inter-.
national trade, relying heav-
ily on import and customs'
duties.

He added that no tax
reforms would be undertak=
en without “full consulta=
tion” with the Bahamian
public, as the IMF again sug-
gested implementing a val?
ue-added tax (VAT) to
“strengthen the fiscal posi«
tion and improve competi-
tiveness...” :

The Fund said VAT could
prove to be a more stable
revenue stream and efficient
revenue stream, and its
introduction would need the
support of taxpayer educa-
tion and administrative
resources.

It added that the existing
import tax system was “rela-
tively distortionary, vulnera-
ble to external shocks” and
inconsistent with any move
for the Bahamas to become
a full member of the World
Trade Organisation (WTO).

On the WTO and other
free trade agreements such
as the Caribbean Single
Market & Economy
(CSME), Mr Christie said
again that he would not sign
the Bahamas on to such
treaties without prior con:
sultation with the public.

Children’s clothing line
set for Bahamas launch

A VICE-president with the

world’s largest home improve-
ment retailer, Home Depot. will
launch a children’s clothing line
in the Bahamas and offer fur-
ther business opportunities for
Bahamians, partners in the
‘CEO Network Conference
have announced.
- The Ministry of Tourtsm and
the CEO Network will present
the LOth annual CEO Network
Conference at British Colonial
Hilton on June 14-16. One of
the opportunities to be high-
lighted at the conference will
be the introduction of ihe chil-
dren’s line.

“Our conference environ-
ment has helped us and inter-
‘national leaders to understand
‘that potential and opportuni-
‘ties are not only available in
‘some of the more developed
countries,” said Deborah
Bartlett, president of the CEO
Network.

“They are looking to us now
to. serve as adaunching pad for
‘what can be considered good
Opportunities. And [am partic-
ularly encouraged that this
clothing line will be awarded to
a Bahamian for distributorship
in the Bahamas.”

Ms Bartlett said the CEO
Network had always been com-

mitted to promoting Bahamian
ownership of the economy.

‘Together with the Ministry of

‘Tourism, she said it had facili-
tated partnerships between
Bahamian and international
businesses,

Through securing the Dud-
lev's Bahamas franchise, Ms
Bartlett said CEO Network
sought to do more than pro-
viding products to hair salons.
Che Dudley’s Bahamas fran-
chise presents an opportunity
to supply hotels with hair prod-
ucts, she added

“We have established a part-
nership between US-based
entrepreneurs and Bahamians
so that we can make the sham-
poos and the lotions in the
Bahamas, again giving us anoth-
er skill-diversifying so we can
keep more of the money here,”
Ms Bartlett said. “We have
Matrix Manufacturing that is
doing that.”

CEO Network has also been |

able to secure Bahamian par-
ticipation in YTB Travel, an
online travel company that
competes with Travelocity and
similar companies.

Other opportunities have
been created through partner-
ships with Lurmiture companies,
Ms. Bartlett said.

“We have to identify the

‘ opportunities that will provide

the linkages to get into our cash
flow business,” she said.
“Instead of all of the money
going out of the country, we
need to find ways to keep more
of this money in our country.
So we have done that.

“We have gone out there and
found some of the best furni-
ture manufacturers, linking
them with Bahamians so that
we can again diversify the
opportunities or contribute to
diversifying the opportunities
for Bahamians.”

David Johnson, deputy direc-
tor-general responsible for
investment and planning in the
Ministry of Tourism, said the
creation and expansion of link-
ages between tourism and other
sectors of the economy was
important.

He pointed out that the link-
ages to tourism are being
strengthened, since more
Bahamian-made products are
supplying the tourism industry.

“We have evidence of this
from a study - the Tourism
Satellite Account (TSA) - that
was just completed by Ministry
of Tourism and its partners in
government and financial ser-
vices.” Mr Johnson said.

increase by $60 million to $103
million, compared to the 2005-
2006 fiscal period. Including
debt redemption, the total
deficit for 2006-2007 will be
$228 million - higher than the
$186 million projected for
2005-2006.

In addition, much of the
Budget increases for the
Defence Force and police are
going on salaries for the lower
ranks - Marine Seamen in the
former, and those ranked
sergeant and below in the
police.

Claims

Asa result, the Government

is likely to face claims that the
Budget increases for these
agencies are designed to secure
votes at the next general elec-
tion.

The recurrent spending
increase of $172 million
includes an increase of $56 mil-
lion for debt servicing; a $14
million dollar pay award for
the public servige due on July
1, 2006; and $5 million for

- increments due in 2006-2007.

In addition, the Budget pro-
vides $40 million to cover addi-
tional expenditure arising from
the 2005-2006 budget, includ-
ing $6 million to the Public
Hospital Authority; $8 million
for the National Emergency
Management Agency; $4.6 mil-
lion for customs overtime; and
$3.6 million for ‘the Depart-
ment of Education.

The major recurrent spend-
ing provisions for 2006-2007
are: a 15.4 per cent increase
for the police force; an 18.9 per
cent increase for the defence
force; a 13 per cent increase
for immigration; a 7.1 per cent
in the provision for prisons; an
increase of 13.1 per cent for

EMERGENC

the judicial department; 12.6
per cent for Magistrates
Courts; and an increase of 10.8
per cent for the Court of
Appeal.

In addition, a 21.3 per cent
increase has been granted for
the Office of the Attorney
General and the Ministry of
Legal Affairs. The Department
of Social Services and Com-
‘munity Development receives
a budget increase of 10.2 per

cent, while the Public Hospital |

Authority gets 11.4 per cent
more and the combined. edu-
cational heads receive 9.8 per
cent more. .

. The urban renewal pro-:
gramme receives an increase
of $2.45 million more. A 53.8
per cent increase has been allo-
cated to mail boat service con-
tracts, and 15.8 per cent more

has been granted to the

Department and Ministry of
Public Works.

On capital spending alloca-
tions, there were again major
increases for the law enforce-
ment agencies: 22 per cent for
the police force; 51.1 per cent
for the Defence Force; 77 per
cent for the prisons.

The Customs Department
will receive 7 per cent more,
while education receives 24.4
per cent and the Public Hospi-
tals Authority received an
increase of 4.8 per cent.

Turning to revenues, the

Prime Minister announced that |

the estimated total take for
2006-2007 was $1.345 billion,
an increase of 11.1 per cent
over the provisional outturn of
$1.212 billion for 2005-2006.

This $1.212 billion projec-

tion represented a $67 million
rise over the Budget’s initial

“fre

@ By JOYCE M.
ROSENBERG
AP Business Writer

“NEW YORK (AP) — The
ea of hurricane season is a
- ‘reminder to small business
nett ce that they need to get

heir companies prepared for
‘All kinds of disasters — storms,
fees earthquakes, even van-
‘dals. It’s a hard task to do
‘when you're trying to run a
‘company and bring in new cus-
fomers, but the potential loss-
‘es from a disaster make plan-
‘hing crucial.

4 Many business owners are
‘understandably daunted by the
‘{dea of putting together a plan.
‘But by setting priorities, and
‘also getting some help in
‘putting a plan together, it can
‘be done, and in a short amount
“of time.

‘| “Jt doesn’t have to be a mil-
‘Jion dollar situation — it can
“be very small, affordable,” said
‘Tom Serio, director of global
-business continuity manage-
ment for Office Depot Inc.
“Start with the basics and
“Piove ahead.”

‘fe/A though Serio’s company
ni

‘a major retailer with loca-
" dons across the country, he
Said businesses of all sizes face
“some of the same issues in dis-
waster planning. The most
‘important aspects of a plan, he
“said, should be protecting a
epmpany *s employees and its






irst, he snide an owner
‘Should educate employees
about disaster preparation for
“their families and homes.
5 “If an employee can survive
“a disaster at home, that means
“they? ll be back to business
-much quicker,” he said.
‘, Serio noted that before Hur-
ticane. Katrina, a business own-
rer with a disaster plan typical-
sly would collect-employees’
»phone numbers — home and
‘cell — and expect that they
‘could be reached. But, he said,
‘the massive destruction and

dislocation caused by Katrina

carried with it a lesson that dis-

aster planning needed to be

_More comprehensive than any-

one previously thought.

Office Depot’s plan now
calls for employees to supply
contact information such as a
spouse’s cell phone number,
home e-mail addresses (espe-
cially since many people can
access their e-mail remotely)
and phone numbers for friends
and family who live out of
state.

“You can’t have enough
contact information for
employees,” Serio said.

Computer

Preserving computer data —
particularly all information
pertaining to your customers
— will ensure that you can stay
in operation, even if your
premises are destroyed. Busi-

nesses have a variety of data-

backup options available to
them, ranging: from storing
records on CDs or other
portable devices to duplicat-
ing them on a remote server
operated by a company known
as a data vault.

Your best bet might be
backup at a remote site,
although it’s likely ta be the
most expensive. If you choose
that route, make sure it’s a site
that’s quite remote — as Kat-
rina proved, 20 miles away
wasn’t far enough.

Serio noted, though, that
storing on devices like CDs is

quite inexpensive and effec- -

tive, as long as you keep them
with you, and not leave them
in the office where they could
be destroyed or inaccessible.
Another important consid-
eration is where you’d operate
if your premises were wiped
out — and how you and your
employees might get there.
Although hurricane regions
get much of the attention this
time of year, disaster can strike
a business anywhere — and it

doesn’t have to be a tornado or
earthquake. Levees can be
breached, rivers can overflow
their banks, and man-made
disasters like fires can also
wipe out a business.

But Herb Mitchell, associ-
ate administrator of the.Small
Business Administration’s
Office of Disaster Assistance,
said that while ‘there is height-

ened interest in disaster prep in —

places like the Gulf Coast,
“beyond that, there does seem
to be a tendency toward busi-
ness as usual.”

Small businesses that need
help in putting plans together
can get some help on the Inter-
net. The SBA’s Web site has a
disaster preparedness section
at www.sba.gov/beawareand-

_ prepare/business.html. The

Institute for Business & Home
Safety Web site has a down-
loadable toolkit called Open
for Business that includes a
considerations you need to
make in preparing for a disas-
ter. You can link directly to it
a t
www.ibhs.org/business(under-
score)protection.

Office Depot also has a
downloadable brochure on dis-
aster prep at www.officede-
pot.com/getprepared.

Steve Lewis, editor-in-chief
of “Edwards Disaster Recov-
ery Directory,” said that dis-
aster preparation can mean
getting your company ready
for somebody else’s disaster —
if your key supplier is wiped
out, your business could be
hurt even if you’re far away
from the afflicted area.

He recalled that when a

‘massive earthquake hit Kobe,

Japan, in 1995, many U.S. busi-
nesses were affected. “Their
suppliers were located around
the area of the earthquake,”
he said.

So disaster planning means
being ready for almost any cat-
astrophe, whether: it hits your
business alone, your town, or
someplace far away.

50-year mortgages lower
monthly payments but they
can cost more in long run

@ By EILEEN ALT POWELL
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — When
it comes to home mortgages,
some people are thinking real-
ly long term by taking 40-year
or 45-year — or even 50-year —
loans.

The attraction is lower

monthly payments, which make
these mortgages more manage-
able for some families. The dis-
advantage is that consumers
can end up paying much more
interest over the life of the loan
than they would with a tradi-
tional 30-year mortgage.

Only a handful of lenders
currently are writing 40 to 50-
year mortgages, but experts
believe others will follow if they
prove popular with home buy-
ers.

’ Among the consumers look-

ing at a 50-year mortgage is.

Larisa Meyer, 35, who is buying
a 100-year-old home in Min-
neapolis.

Meyer, a: self- employed
graphic artist, said it’s impor-
tant to her to keep her month-
ly mortgage payment low
because her income can be
irregular. At the same time, she
doesn’t want an exotic mort-
gage, such as an interest-only
loan, because she wants to build
equity in her new home.

year mortgage is the payment
size,” Meyer said. “I also know
that in a few years, I will have
some equity, It won’t be a ton,
but there will be some.”

Still, consumers should be
forewarned that most of the
longer-term mortgages do not
have a fixed interest rate like
many 30-year mortgages do.

The loan Meyer is consider-
ing carries an interest rate of
6.5 per cent for the first five
years, and then the rate can be
adjusted annually, said Eric Pir-
ius, a loan officer at River City
Mortgage. & Financial in

‘Eagan, Minn., who is working

with Meyer. It also requires a
“balloon payment” of the out-
standing balance after 30 years,
although the presumption is
that most mortgage holders will
have refinanced long before
that. ;

“T haven’t talked to a client
yet who intends to hold a mort-
gage for 50 years,” Pirius said.
“But that low payment helps
people qualify. It gets them into
that home and getting the tax
benefits of ownership.”

He calculated that a con-
sumer who took out a‘$250,000
mortgage at 6.5 per cent for a
30-year term would pay about
$1,580 per month. That mort-
gage on a 50-year payment
schedule would require month-
ly payments of about $1,410 —
a savings of about $170 a
month.

Some housing experts are
skeptical that the 40- to 50-year
mortgages will be widely used.

Keith T Gumbinger, vice

president of HSH Associates, '

a mortgage information service
based in Pompton Plains, N.J.,
said 40-year mortgages have
come in-and out of favour, last

gaining some popularity in the
mid-1980s when interest rates
were so high many consumers
didn’t qualify for loans.

The major drawback of the
longer-term mortgages, he
believes, is that “equity builds
extremely slowly” so that
there’s little advantage com-
pared with interest-only loans.

And, he said, a consumer
could end up spending a lot
more in interest payments.

For comparison purposes,
Gumbinger calculated the cost
of mortgages of various lengths
with a fixed rate of interest: On
a $275,000 mortgage for 30

years at a fixed rate of 6.75 per-

cent, a consumer would make
monthly payments of $1,783.64
and pay $367,112 in interest
over the life of the loan. That
same mortgage at the likely
higher rate of 7 percent for a
40-year term would require
monthly payments of $1,708.93
and result in $545,290 in inter-
est. At 7.25 per cent for 50
years, monthly payments would

be $1,707.45 and total interest

would be $749,476.

“You really can’t think of
these as long-term financing
vehicles because the interest

cost is overwhelming,”
Gumbinger said.

Anthony Hsieh, chief exec-

utive officer of LendingTree, -
an online mortgage market-
place based in Charlotte, N.C.,

said he believed some lenders’
were promoting 40- and 50-year
mortgages “to stir up some

excitement” as interest rates

have risen and cooled the hous-

ing market.
Hsieh said he didn’t know of

any lenders offering 50-year ©

mortgages with the rate fixed ©
for the entire term.

“They call it a 50-year, but’
the-rate generally is fixed for

only five or 10 years and they:
use a 50-year amortization’

table,” he said.
This configuration, he said

makes the longer term mort-.i »:
gages look more like 5-1 hybrid ).::

loans, which have fixed rates of).
interest for the first five years’: »:

then start adjusting, or to some
of the interest-only mortgages.
All of these mortgages, he

noted, appeal to many of: ©
today’s buyers “because they, .:
look at monthly payment and::
cash flow as their only objec-\..
tive” when selecting a mort- .,-
gage. ; ruts

He Said: “I assure you that
the Bdard is anxious to resume
providing such returns to
shareholders as early as possi-
ble. 8

“However, the current
investinent thrust is to further
strengthen the company’s
financial position and build for
the future by improving its
physical infrastructure and
investing in new medical tech-
nology: that will facilitate the
expansion of existing services
and the introduction of new
ones:;~

“In, the circumstances, the
Board believes it would be
/more!prudent for management
to mamtain the current posi-
tion of reinvesting available
resources to help ensure future
growth. .

Strategy

“This strategy should be
maintained for the next fiscal
year)at least, and assuming
continued strong profitability
and positive cash flow, the
company should then be better
positioned to revisit its divi-
dend distribution policy in the
nearest term.”

DHHS net income growth
was driven by a 17.3 per cent





or $5.543 million increase in
patient service revenues. The
average daily census, which
measured inpatient activity
across all DHHS service
departments, rose by 17.2 per
cent over the previous year,
returning to levels seen in the

2002 fiscal year.

Fiscal

Other revenues in fiscal 2006
grew by $189,000 or 42.1 per
cent to give DHHS total rev-
enues of $37.563 million, a rise
of $5.732 million or 17.7 per
cent.

DHHS said the revenues
increases reflected “significant
levels” of Intensive Care Unit
and Intermediate Care Unit
patient days. Patient days in
these two departments
increased 23.9 per cent over
fiscal 2005, a period where the
increase was 24.6 per cent
higher than fiscal 2004.

Total patient days of 12,415
was “the highest level of activ-
ity” seen by DHHS, while
adult patient days for the 12
months to January 31, 2006,
increased by 16.6 per cent over
2005, which in turn saw a 9.3
per cent rise over 2004.

Total admissions reached
4,081 in 2006, with the average
daily census recording 34
patients.

Visits to DHHS’ sessional
and wound care department
rose by 30.6 per cent in fiscal
2006, with the emergency room
seeing the highest number of
visits for four years.

However, DHHS said oper-

ating expenses increased in just
about every category. In com-
mon with many other busi-
nesses, the BISX-listed com-
pany saw its utility costs rise
by 22.1 per cent in 2006, due
chiefly to. “the spike in elec-
tricity costs”.

The provision for doubtful
accounts increased as a per-
centage of revenues by 6.7 per
cent during fiscal 2006, up from
3.5 per cent the previous year.
The raw amount was $1.4 mil-
lion, a rise of 28.4 per cent.

DHHS said: “This significant
increase reflects the company’s
continuing exposure for unin-
sured and underinsured cus-
tomers. It also reflects some
deterioration in collectibilily
from several significant third
party payers and the compa-
ny’s consistent efforts to recog-
nise these bad debt exposures
early.”

Revenue

The number of days revenue
in accounts receivable
increased to 74 days trom 66
the previous year, reflecting an

overall 31.9 per ceni or $1.8
million rise in net accounts
receivable.

DHHS said: “The increase

in accounts receivable reflects,
in part, the temporary shift of
staff away from collection func-
tions towards activities associ-
ated with design and imple-
mentation of the new
Meditech information system.

“Management expects that
this upswing in accounts receiv-
able will continue through the

first quarter of fiscal 2007
before a return to accounts
receivable days in the range of
65-70 days.” &

While total salaries and ben-
efits increased by 14.2 per cent

over the previous year in fiscal

2006, as a percentage of patient
service revenues they fell to
36.8 per cent-from 37.8 per

cent.
Staff

DHHS added that its staff
turnover rate was 1.47.per cent,
compared to the 12 per cent
average for US hospitals.

The company added that
direct government taxes and
fees increased 24.5 per cent to
$0.7 million, due to increased
business licence and work per-
mit fees. DHHS also reduced
its bank debt by 19.8 per cent
or $2.6 million in fiscal 2006.

Losses from discontinued
operations, especially the
Western Medical Plaza, fell by
$0.5 million or 32.8 per cent in
fiscal 2006. Without the drag
from these operations, net
income would have been
$5.163 million rather than
$4.112 million.

DHHS said the second
phase of its Healthcare Infor-
mation System (HIS) would be
installed between June and
November 2006, with the third
phase to come on-stream in
2007.

NEW YORK (Dow
Jones/AP) — Gold, silver and
platinum slipped Wednesday
in a quiet session, hit by a
round of month-end profit-tak-
ing.

Most-active August gold set-
tled $11.50 lower at $649 an
ounce Wednesday. The con-
tract reached $665.80 earlier
in the day, but lost steam.

Peter Grandich, analyst and
editor of the Grandich Letter,
said after a*“significant
momentum failure” on Tues-
day, the rally Wednesday
morning failed to attract fur-
ther attention.

““Gold couldn’t get above
important levels and local
traders and stale bulls sold,”
said Grandich, adding that if
gold breaks below the $635 to

Gold, silver fall




$640 level it could head back to
the $600-an-ounce level.

But he added that the drop
back to $600 was not likely to
happen given the strong per-
formance of mining stocks.

July silver followed in gold’s
footsteps, settling 61.5 cents
lower at $12.455 an ounce.

July platinum ended the ses-
sion $44.60 lower at $1,246.80
an ounce while September pal-
ladium settled down $9.50 at
$353.15 an ounce.

The most-active July copper
contract fell 5 cents to $3.6240

July crude oil ended 74 cents
lower at $71.29 a barrel after
falling as low as $70.05 a barrel.

was clear that the IMF accept-

He attributed the projected
economic growth to his gov-

The Prime Minister said the
projected volume of inward
investments will be at least $8

' billion over the next few years,

well in excess of the 2005 GDP

Capital inflows, he said,

@ By CHRISTOPHER WANG
AP Business Writer



NEW YORK (AP) — Wall
Street closed out an uneasy May
with a solid advance Wednesday,
even after minutes from the last
Fedéral Reserve meeting indicat-
ed that inflation pressures raised
the chance ‘of another interest,
rate hike in June. The major
indexes ended the month broad-
ly lower.

, Investors have been searching
for clarity on the Fed’s next move
after the central bank said in ear-
ly May that higher rates could be
needed to battle soaring energy

s. The notes from the Fed’s
May, 10 meeting said its inflation

sectations have increased
somewhat and left only a slight
hint of a pause next month.

7 But Douglas Porter, a senior
economist for BMO Nesbitt
Burns, said there were no major
sugprises in the minutes given
recent signs of economic strength
and high oil prices. Stocks tum-
bled after the Fed report was
rel eased but regained their foot-
ing shortly after.

‘However, “the overall impres-
sion ‘the minutes leave is that
théte’s a bit more concern about
iMfation than in previous min-
wbes,” Porter said. “I think it
ecenes across loud and clear that
these concerns are starting to
weigh heavily on Fed members.”

7 After an upbeat start to May, a
muddled inflation picture left
stocks languishing during the last
lidlf of the month, and investors
still appeated to be nervous. On
Tuesday, a jump in oil prices,
Weakening consumer strength
and poor sales at Wal-Mart Stores
Irie: triggered a 184-point slide
for the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age.

At Wednesday’s close, the
Dow gained 73.88, or 0.67 per-
cent, to.11,168.31, after rising as
much as 89 points earlier.

Broader stock indicators were
also higher. The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index rose 10.25, or
:0:81 percent, to 1,270.09; the Nas-

daq composite index added 14.14,
or 0.65 percent, to 2,178.88, but
still showed a loss for the year.

Bonds slumped on the prospect
of rising interest rates, with the
yield on the 10-year Treasury
note climbing to 5.13 percent
from 5.08 percent late Tuesday.
The USS. dollar advanced against
the Japanese yen and was flat ver-
sus European currencies, gold
prices stood near $650 an ounce.

Lower crude futures helped
calm the market’s inflation jitters.
Reports that the United States is
ready to join talks with Iran over
its nuclear activities eased wor-
ries about a supply cutoff and sent
a barrel of light crude falling 74
cents to $71.29 on the New York
Mercantile Exchange.

The Fed’s minutes capped off a
highly volatile month for Wall
Street. Hope that the central bank
was nearly done lifting rates car-
ried stocks to six-year highs in
early May, but the Fed’s warning
that surging commodities prices
remain a problem for inflation
launched a two-week selloff that
dragged the Dow down “ percent
and put the Nasdaq in the red for
2006.

For the month of May, the
Dow lost 1.75 percent, the S&P
500 declined 3.09 vercent and the
Nasdaq plunged 6.19 percent.

Although the minutes signaled
no major changes in the Fed’s
stance, policymakers expressed
greater concerns about escalat-
ing prices and reinforced views
that the central bank will bump
the key short-term jending rate a

Cc



17th consecutive time tc 5 25 per-—

cent at its June 28-29 meeting,
Porter said.

He added that the Fed left the
door open for future increases.
“In a nutshell, these minutes have
raised serious doubts about
whether the Fed is through,”
Porter said.

The market faces more tests
later this week from data on labor
costs and wage growth, both of
which are seen as primary drivers
of inflation. But while those num-
bers may offer clues about the

SAT RST

likelihood of another rate hike,
the Fed’s next policy meeting is
not until the end of June, said
Ryan Larson, senior equity trad-
er for Voyageur Asset Manage-
ment.

“The key thing to take away
right now is that no one really
knows what the Fed’s policy will
be going forward,” he said.

Concerns that rising U.S. lend-

ing rates will cramp global growth’

has roiled overseas markets this

week. On Wednesday, Japan’s-
Nikkei stock average plunged’

2.47 percent, while stocks in Sin-
gapore slid 2.4 percent and the
Indian market tumbled 3.6 per-
cent.

European markets, however,

recouped some of their recent.

losses, with Britain’s FTSE 100
adding 1.29 percent, Germany’s
DAX index surging 1.25 percent
and Franve’s CAC-40 higher by

BUSINESS

Stocks preserve modest gain after Fed minutes - :

0.74 percent.

Costco Wholesale Corp. said
its third-quarter profit grew 12
percent but just missed analyst
estimates, although its sales came
in above targets. Costco slid 63
cents to $52.93.

ADC Telecommunications Inc.
is acquiring fellow equipment
maker Andrew Corp. in a $2 bil-
lion stock swap worth $12.76 per
share. ADC also posted a 32 per-
cent Slide in quarterly. earnings.
Andrew rose 34 cents to $10.12,
and ADC lost $4.46 to $17.92.

Advancing issues outpaced
decliners by almost 3 to 1 on the

New York Stock Exchange,

where preliminary consolidated
volume of 2.73 billion shares
topped the 2.2 billion shares that
changed hands Tuesday.

The Russell 2000 index, of

smaller companies gained 9.97,.

or 1.4 percent, to 721.01.

T SEEMS as if profes-
sional boxing could
haye a new dimension if the
Bahamas Boxing Commis-
sion grants Quincy “Thrill-A-
Minute’ Pratt his boxing
licence.

Pratt, 28, has been forced
to sit on the sidelines watch-
ing for the past three years
alier he was stripped of his
license because of his eye
injury.

During that time, Pratt has
been giving back to the sport
by forming his Eastside Box-
ing Club. He spent a lot of
time grooming some of the
nation’s amateur boxers.

But he has refused to let
go of his dream of fighting
evaln,

He has resurfaced, this
time with the hopes of fight-
ing Meacher ‘Pain’ Major for
his Bahamas lightweight title.
Major also holds the FEDE-
Caribe title, but Pratt said
the “paper title” doesn’t
interest him.

It could be intriguing, if
he’s afforded the opportuni-
ty io get back into the ring.

Before his departure, Pratt
fought Ray Minus Jr. three
times for the coveted
J;ahamas bantamweight and
lightweight titles, but he fell
short every time.

Minus Jr., who has since
retired, has launched his
(‘hampion Amateur Boxing

OPINIO

LN



Now Pratt says he wants to
“teach Meacher a lesson”
after an alleged clash during
one of his training sessions
for Minus Jr.

That is all the reason more
why this should be a fight
that could be good for the
public at this time.

The only problem is
whether or not, if his licence
is granted, Pratt can shake

SPORTS



over the past three years and
has developed a reputation
as a puncher with a “quick
draw,” as was evident in his
first round knockout over
Mexican Luis ‘Lichi’ Couch
in the FEDECaribe title fight
on May 19.

While many of the fans
who turned out to the Wynd-
ham Nassau Resort were a
little disappointed when the
fight ended so quickly, it just
showed how prepared and
focused Major was.

Whether or not Couch 9-2
was a quality fighter, it
should not have taken away
from the fact that: Major
wasted little time in getting
started.

Major, like Mackey, has
established himself as one of
the top local professional
boxers. He has yet to be test-
ed on the local scene and
maybe'a challenge from Pratt
will be just what is needed.

So it will probably be a
good opportunity if the
Bahamas Boxing Commis-
sion, now headed by Dr. Nor-
man Gay, can revisit Pratt’s
licence request ahd grant him
permission to fight. _

If you enjoyed the show-
down that he had with Minus
Jr., I’m sure boxing fans will
be eager to see how well he
can go up against Major.

Right now, the sport needs
someone like Pratt who isn’t
afraid to speak his mind.

“I’m happy to get
through,” Federer said. “It’s
not easy to come on and off.
You always hope your game
is still there and it hasn’t left
you.”

Federer shanked fore-
hands on two match points
in the final game before clos-
ing out the victory to
improve to 40-3 this year. He
never lost his serve, won 55
of 68 service points and fin-

“You just have to adjust and

Sharapova, recovering
from,an ankle injury. she
aggravated last week, moved
well on the center-court clay.

“It was a lot better than
my previous match,” she
said. “I didn’t feel like I was.

pain-wise it felt a lot better.”

Sports Reporter _

_ WITH the upcoming Gold-
en League series set to begin
in a just a few days, one of the
country's premiere quarter
milers is both physically and
mentally prepared to meet the
challenge. -

After a season of highlights,
which included setting a new
National indoor record in the
400m, Chris Brown is turning
his focus toward the European
circuit.

The first Golden League
meet, the Exxon Mobil Bislett
Games, begins Friday June 2
in Oslo, Norway.

Although this 400m field is
one of the strongest in recent
memory, Brown is confident
that he will be a top contender
throughout the season

"A lot of the guys have
been really consistent this
year, running sub 45's, but I
wasn’t really particularly
focused on their times," he
said. “Everybody that lines up
at a new meet on a new day
has a new time, so I'm really
not too concerned with the

times these guys ran, they still.

have to do it with me in the
race."
Brown said his goal is to

have a successful season Over- |

all, the Golden League jack-
pot would just become an
added bonus.

"Tjust have to focus on one
race at a time and continue to
do what I've been doing, tak-
ing it day by-day, hopefully
I'll be able to stay healthy and
positive.”

The strain of the season has
placed somewhat of a burden
on the veteran sprinter but he
said that he has recovered and
is ready to compete against
the world’s best.

"Thad to shut down my sea-
son and start all over from the
beginning, because J ran at
World Indoor Championships
and I came from there direct-
ly to the Commonwealth
games, so I went from one
major meet and went right
into another," he said, “After
that I shut it down for about 8
weeks and continued my
training all over again, so now
I’m back at square one and
ready for competition."

Last year in Helsinki, Fin-
land at the IAAF World
Championships, Brown ran a

personal best of 44.48 out of
lane eight and finished in
fourth place, just out of medal
contention.

He said he has improved a
great deal from this point in
his season a year ago.

This year I’ve been doing
great, I ran a personal best
indoors and I think I'm two
times ahead of the game
where I was last year so this
year I'm really looking to

come out with a vengeance
and take what's rightfully
mine,” he said. “This year a
lot of the guys have been con-
sistent with 44.80s so I don't
think much of the field is com-
ing back into the shape they
were in last year, because I
haven't seen those same type
of performances"

Despite the lack. of a major
meet this year, like last year’s
World Outdoor Champi-
onships or the Olympics,
Brown says he approaches the
season in the same manner
regardless of where or when |
he competes.

“Its going to be a signifi- -
cant year even though we |
don’t have a major champi-
onship this year,” he said.
“But I treat every year the
same, and do my best to go |
out there execute, leave my »
mark, break records and come
home a winner.”

in Nations
Cup final

@ SOCCER
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter








IT WILL be youth versus
experience when the Bahamas
Under-20 team plays Team Lati-
no in the final of the Nations
Cup tonight at the Thomas A.
Robinson Track and Field Stadi-
um.

The final will be eaves at
9pm, immediately following the
third place matchup between
Jamaica and Haiti that starts at
7pm.

’ According to Granton Inniss,
organiser of the tournament
being hosted by the United,
Football Club, the grand finale
should be a very exciting show-
down.

“T’m predicting that the
under-20 team will win because
they’ve been training very hard
and J think the coaching staff
that they have with Tony Singh
and Stephen Bellot, they stand a
very good chance of winning,”
said Inniss.

The Bahamas Under-20
knocked off Haiti 2-0 on Sunday -
to secure their berth into the
final, while Team Latino earned
their trip with a 1 0 win over
Jamaica.

The teams, according to
‘Tnniss, are basically made up of

players who are natives from.
those countries but are currently
residing here in the Bahamas.
Great Britain and the Rest of.
the World made up the remain- |
der of the field that participated.

Singh is confident that with
the squad that he and Bellot
have put together,.the Bahamas
will definitely prevail with the
championship title tonight:

“They look good. and we ©.
expect to‘come out with the vic-
tory,” he proclaimed. “It’s going
to be youth and speed against
experience. We just have to 1.
stick to the game plan, 2: play. :
simple football and 3. communi- ©
cate with each other on the
field.”

Of course, Singh will be rely-
ing on collegians Cameron Hep-
ple and Conner Sheehan; along
with Dwayne Forbés in the mid-
field; Shari Clarke in goal and
central defenders Demetri.
Darville and collegian-Darrel
Beneby to pull the team
through.

But Team Latino’s
player/manager Jose:Loa, a
Peruvian by birth, said his side
should not be taken lightly
because of the age factor.

“Tt will bea very interesting
game,” charged Loa, of his team .
that comprised mainly of Peru- .:
vians and Brazilians. “We're -
looking forward to playing
against the younger guys.

“We’re much older, but we
are supposed to be more skillful. «
' The younger guys are very o
and energetic.”

Loa will centre their game
around Holland native Maikel.

«, Wiesnekker. Reports have indi- :

~ cated that Wiesnekker is expect-

ed to sign a professional contract. |

; to play in the United States. ,,

_.. “We’re concerned about this
kid named Cameron. We’re
aiming him like he’s watching ; .
Maikel. He’s really good,” Loa
stated. “They have a few other’
players, but he’s the one we’re
talking about.”

The tournament, now in its
eighth year, was sponsored by
Calender & Co Law Firm; Super
Wash, Insurance Management,
Original Pattiés and Dr. Homer
Bloomfield. ‘

Last year’s champions, Rest
of the World, were eliminated

after losing 4-2 to Jamaica and

2-0 to Team Latino.

PM delivers budget
communication

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

WITH a projected economic
growth rate of 6.5 per cent and
an estimated recurrent revenue
of. $1.345 billion for the
2006/2007 fiscal year, the
Bahamas has reached “a take-
off point into what could be the
longest, highest and most sub-
stantial economic expansion of
our history,” Prime Minister
Perry Christie announced yes-
terday.

Delivering the 2006/07 bud-
get communication in parlia-
ment yesterday morning, Mr

Christie said that the Bahamas

government and international

rating agencies all agree that |

the Bahamas’ economic growth
is steadily increasing and
expected to reach. new heights
in the next two years,

The prime minister said that
the estimated recurrent revenue
intake has increased by 11.1 per
cent over the 2005/06 provi-
sional out-turn of $1,212 billion.

In addition to these figures,
analysts also project that the
volume of inward investment

will amount to at least $8 bil- '

lion over the next few years, he
said.
“Tn relation to the size of the

economy, this is a scale of

inward investment without par-
allel anywhere in the world. The
volume of investment is well in
excess of the 2005 GDP of the
Bahamas of $5.9 million,” he
said.

The country’s: economic
growth, he said, is largely the
result of government’s success
in attracting productive invest-
ment in tourism projects “in vir-
tually every major island of the

Bahamas and from my govern-
ment’s careful stewardship of
this economic, expansion the
likes to which are without
precedent.”

Mr Christie said he expects
the capital inflow to further
strengthen: in 2006 and 2007
with the Baha Mar project com-
ing on stream and the construc-
tion of two new hotels in New
Providence, as well as the accel-
eration of the investment pro-

jects planned for the major |

inhabited Family Islands.

“Economic growth is increas-
ing steadily each year and will
be 5.8 per cent in 2006 as com-
pared with 2.3 per cent in 2002
when we entered office, or 0.8
per cent in the previous year
2001,” he said.

Citing the most recent data
from the International Mone-
tary Fund (IMF), Mr Christie
said that the economic growth
rate for the year 2005/2006 is
projected to be at 4.7 per cent.

For 2006 the growth rate is
estimated to be at 5.8 per cent,
for the fiscal year 2006/2007 at
6.5 per cent, for 2007/08 at 6.7
per cent and in 2008/09 at 5.6
per cent.

“These overlapping projec-
tions strongly suggest that the
growth rate of the Bahamian
economy started to accelerate
in the latter part of 2005 and
will continue to accelerate
through the whole of 2006.

“In fact, the IMF projections
show a growth rate of 6.7 per
cent for 2007/08 so it is clear
that the IMF accepts the accel-
eration of the economy right

through the next two fiscal years ~

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST

THE massive $18 million
jump in-expenditure in the

" Office of the Prime Minister is

expected to become a matter of
serious debate.

FNM Deputy leader Brent
Symonette said that such dis-
crepancies will be painstakingly
scrutinised over the course of
the upcoming budget debate.

Expenditure within the office

of the Prime Minister has

jumped from just under $5 mil-
lion in 2005/2006 to almost $23
million for 2006/2007.

This increase of more than
360 per cent from last year’s
estimates is by far the largest
single increase in any govern-
ment agency in this year’s bud-
get.

Minister.and Minister of

THE diplomatic corps of the

be subjected to a number of pay
cuts under the government’s
draft budget.

The 10 Bahamas ambas-
sadors will be paid $73,000 less
between them, the four high
commissioners $2,200 less and
the four consul-generals $45,000

However, the salaries of some
ministry employees have been
significantly increased.

For example, the combined
salary of the seven first secre-
taries in the ministry has more
than doubled; they will share
$152,000 between them, up
from $71,000 the year before.

The combined salary of the
two senior protocol officers has
also more than doubled in a
year — from $29,000 to $63,000.

The same is true of the com-

THE Ministry of Foreign
Affairs is aiming to increase
the country’s involvement in
regional concerns while
decreasing spending on many

? ‘wider international efforts,

budget figures suggest.

While ministry’s estimated
spending on the United
Nations has been virtually
sliced in half — from $500,000
the year before to $260,000 —
the estimated spending on
CARICOM initiatives has sig-
nificantly increased.

Proposed spending on
CARICOM’s Caribbean
Regional Secretariat has
almost doubled. In 2005/2006,
it was estimated at $1,041,000.
This year it is.estimated at
$2,059,300.

THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 2006, PAGE 3

But funds increased to regional initiatives



In addition, the Bahamas has
more than doubled its estimat-
ed spending on Caribbean
peace-keeping operations —
from $250,000 to $610,000.

Another increase of note is
the estimated spending on the
African, Caribbean and Pacif-
ic Group of States (ACP) com-
mon market — which rose from
$60,000 to $133,000.

The ministry also estimates
that it will spend more than
$93,000 on regional ventures
not previously in the budget -
$25,246 on the Caribbean
Knowledge and Learning Net-
work and $68,000 on the CARI-
COM Regional Organisation
for Standards and Quality.

One entry provides for
$175,000 to be spent o n
“regional operating machin-
ery,” an expense that has not
been in the budget in previous
years.

There are a number of esti-
mated increases in spending on
global initiatives, however
these are slight by comparison.

For example, the ministry is
estimating that it will spend
$500 more on the World Heath
Organisation than the previ-
ous year, $300 more on the
World Intellectual Property
Organisation and $500 more
on the International Commit-
tee of the Red Cross.

GOVERNMENT © sis
expected to spend $172 mil-
lion more in the 2006/2007
fiscal year than it did in the
previous year.

Giving the budget commu-
nication yesterday, Prime
Minister Christie said that
recurrent expenditure for the
coming fiscal year is estimat-
ed at $1,386 billion - an
increase of 14 per cent over
the last’s year recurrent esti-
mates of $1,214 billion.

Last year, government esti-
mated only a $39 million
increase over the previous
year’s recurrent expenditure.

Addressing the House of
Assembly, Mr Christie
explained that the major
increases, nditure are
going:towards priority areas,,
“which provide security for
persons, property and our
national frontiers.”

“More specifically these
services encompass the
police, the Defence Force,
the Immigration, and Cus-
toms departments and the
judicial system and the mea-
sures which provide employ-
ment opportunities and
which seek to integrate every
Bahamian more fully into
society,” he said.

The prime minister said
that these priorities also
include education and train-
ing, the Urban Renewal Pro-
gramme, disaster relief, hous-
ing, and social and health care
services provided by the state.

Some of the increases are:

e 15.4 per cent, or $14,4
million for the police - from
$93,9 million to $108,4 mil-
lion.

Fred Mitchell clouds Cuba iss

IN HIS explanation to the House of

Assembly on May 17, Foreign Affairs Min-
ister Fred Mitchell tried to justify his gov-
ernment’s vote for Cuba to be seated on the
UN Human Rights Council by showing that
the Ingraham government did the same in
1994.

Said Mr Mitchell: “I have also checked the

‘J~. records of when the Bahamas was a member

of the United Nations Economic and Social
Council called ECOSOC. This was from the
period 1993 to 1995. During that time Cuba
was a member of the old Human Rights
Commission which was replaced by the pre-
sent Human Rights Council. The record
clearly shows that the instructions given to
the UN delegation by the side opposite (the
former Ingraham government) in 1994 were
- tosupport Cuba’s membership of the Com-
mission on Human Rights.”

This is the old story of misery desperate-
ly looking around for company. However,
when Mr Mitchell made this statement, he
_ must have known that he was clouding the

~ issue, and that his facts were off base.

-. Mr Mitchell is fully aware that one of the
many reasons the United Nations got rid of
the old Human Rights Commission was to
abolish its system of voting — the bloc vote.
And it was through the regional bloc vote —
where individual countries had no say, but
had to go along with whatever the region
decided — that rogue human rights abusers,
like Cuba, got to sit on the board.

“The elections process established for the
Human Rights Council broke new ground in
introducing competition, human rights
pledges and a small window of transparency
in what was traditionally a closed process
of vote-trading controlled by the regional
bloc system,” said a Freedom House analy-
sis.
Therefore, in 1994 the Bahamas would
have had no individual vote. The vote was
controlled by the bloc. The May 9th vote
this year was the first time that coutiiries
had the opportunity to cast a direct and indi-
vidual vote. The only problem this time was
that the ballot was secret. In hindsight it is
now realised that secrecy was a mistake — a
mistake because it “effectively shields gov-
ernments from accountability for their
. votes.” There are those who now think that
each country should be held accountable

for its vote, and. that the secrecy clause
should be abolished.

And so My Mitcheil’s vote, cast on behait
of his government, was the first time that
the Bahainas ever voted tor who should sit
on a human sights board. Hiding behind the
210 cast-
_in our opinion, he
7 zal coum-







ing the Bahamas‘ %
blew au









sition to any nalion i that: would deniy its citi-
zens the same freedoms that Bahamians
enjoy.

Mx Mitchell continues to confuse the US

-trade and travel embargo against Cuba with

the human rights vote. The two are not the

~ sameé. No one is questioning aay Bahamian’s

right to travel to, or trade with Cuba, or
even enjoy diplomatic relations. And con-
trary to what Mr Mitchell claimed in his
statement to the House, no Bahamian —
not even Mr Ingraham — considers the
Cuban people “odious.” However, what is
odious is how the Castro regime has denied
Cubans their universal human rights. What
is also odious is the fact that the Bahamas
would give its blessing to such a regime.

Mr Ingraham has never hidden the fact
that he does not agree. with America’s
embargo against Cuba. He will tell you that
when he was in Washington as prime minis-
ter he was quite frank with the President
and other congressmen about his position.
And they were equally frank with him. Many
of them agreed with his anti-embargo stance.
However, they were also aware that they
would lose the Florida and New Jersey vote
if they failed to support the embargo. And
so, it would be no surprise if the Ingraham
government voted against or even abstained
from voting in the UN on the embargo ques-
tion. Americans never questioned this coun-
try’s right to do so.

However, all freedom loving people
would question our support of a country
that does noi, in the government of its peo-
ple, recognise the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.

And so, Mr Mitchell, hurnan rights -—-

freedom of expression, conscience, religion,

movement, association, and the right to leave
and reiuiii fo one’s country — is the bottom

_ line. It has nothing tc de with trade and

diplomacy.

advised ZNS management ai
that time of their erroneous
date of celebration.

Historically, it is impossibic

to date ZNS radio as slarting
on May 26. 1936 because as
the original purchasing docu-
ments for radio equipment
noted the radio equipment did
not arrive tn the coantry until
The equipmeni
was ordered in December
1936. li took the first four
months of 1937 to acquire the
necessary parts and install the
equipment before the station
went on the air. Anyone who
was doing accurate research
for the celebration of the 70th
anniversary at the National
Archives would have seen the
original receipts for equip-
meni and the original debat:

from 1936 (actually the
debates to operate a local
radio station began in 1927)
to 1937 on the acquisition of
equipment and personnel.
Further, the recording. rights
were not obtained until April
1937 and so this. also delayed
the start of the station.

When I brought this infor.

and preparing for the 70th

Urban renewal in Acklins

EDITOR. The Tribune.

IT. IS with great disgust with how things: are being done in, Ack
lins with the urban renewal programme. which | believe was
designed to benefit the needy, elderly, the poor, etc., that I write this
letter.

The younger people on the island are benefiting much more than
the senior citizens. Some are given a complete new house while 6ld-
er people, like Mrs Estella Johnson of Lovely Bay, who lives in a
house which leaks when it rains, causing her bed_and other furni-
ture to get wet, is given very little attention.

1am kindly asking that those in authority revisit the old. séople’s
homes in Acklins and make a greater effort to see that these peo
ple’s homes are in a proper condition to withstand heavy storms
such as hurricanes. As you know we are almost in the hurricane’sea- :
son and we would not like to see our old people who toiled so hard
to make our beautiful country the way it is today neglected. Aisc
we would not like to see our old people live ii such Sea con
ditions.

It is my hope that this letter would capture the eyes ot someone
who cares about our old peopie. 1

Urban Renewal programme should look out for our needy anc
old people first.

In brief —

Generator
shutdown
caused
blackout

THE weekend power out-
ages that caused outrage
among residents of western
New Providence were the
result of an emergency shut-
down of a large generator
according to BEC.

The Bahamas Electricity
Corporation (BEC) apolo-
gised to its customers for any
inconvenience caused by the
outages.

“We are diligently working
toward firming up our spare
plant capacity, which will
reduce the likelihood of any
similar recurrence,” said the
company in a statement.

“The events that occurred
on Sunday, May 28, resulted
from the emergency shut-
down of a large generator
which on its own would not
have resulted in such an
extended power outage,” thé
statement explained.

“Unfortunately, the gener-
ator outage coincided with
other planned outages,
which were forced to be
extended due to unforeseen
circumstances.

“The result was that the
power outage lasted until the
return to service of the gen-
erator that was off-loaded
under emergency condi-

_ tions,” it said. —

BEC said staff continues
to work diligently to improve
the company’s electricity
‘product and minimise any
inconvenience to customers.

Minister

m@ By MARK HUMES

SIX days after votes were cast
in the Bahamas Hotel Catering
and Allied Workers Union’s
election, Immigration and
Labour Minister Shane Gibson
hopes that a meeting scheduled
for today with the heads of I Fa
Justice and The Rainbow Team
will bring this stalemate to an
end.

As late as last night, there was
still no official leadership for the
BHCAWU, as a recount of the
votes cast for the presidency sug-
gested a tie between incumbent
Pat Bain and I Fa Justice’s Roy
Colebrooke.

In light of the controversy sur-
rounding the election and its out-
come, Minister Gibson. said he
has a meeting scheduled with the
two leaders vying for the top post
of the BHCAWU.

Calling this meeting an

Gibson said, “I want to give

Levislation ‘does exist’ for
community service sentences

@ By TIFFANY GRANT |
Tribune Staff Reporter —

NATIONAL Security Minis-
ter Cynthia Pratt said she has
been advised that despite claims
to the contrary, legislation does
exist allowing magistrates to
hand down community service
sentences to petty offenders.

However, Mrs Pratt said she

was also informed that an
administration to oversee the
community service programme
has yet to be created.

On Monday, human rights
activist Paul Moss said! the fact
that the Bahamas has the
world’s eighth-highest per capi-

’ ta prison rate is “no surprise”, as

many petty offenders are incar-
cerated when they should be giv-
en alternative sentences.
Prison Superintendent Dr
Elliston Rahming agreed, say-

ing there are 250 petty offenders



@ NATIONAL Security
Minister and Deputy PM
Cynthia Pratt

at Her Majesty’s Prison who should not be there.
Both men put the problem down to lack of legislation allow-
ing for petty offenders to carry out constructive, community:

based tasks.

“This would help so much if we. can get that large number of
them on community service,” Mrs Pratt agreed.

“They can do so much more out here to give back to this com-
munity after getting involved in petty crime, than if you just lock
them away and at the end of the month’s time they are right
back out doing the same thing,” she said.

Mrs Pratt pointed out that the recidivism rate in Mexico is 10
per cent — whereas in the Bahamas, it is almost 70 per cent.

She explained that the Mexican government has created sev-
eral programmes through which prisoners can re-enter society

equipped with skills.

“Somehow, some way, we have to be able to demand that
these young boys in particular — young girls as well,:but most-
ly the young boys get into criminal behaviour — can receive a

skill.

“Tf they drop out of school they (must) end up with some skill
whether it is Carpentry, masonry or plumbing, so that they
would be able to make a living for themselves without return-

‘ing or ending up in the life of crime,” said Mrs Pratt.

case,” he continued, “then, of
course, right after we will be
releasing the official results.”
The validity of the elections
were called into question when
unofficial results announced to
stakeholders on the night of the
election differed from those
announced by ZNS. Union lead-
ers were further infuriated when
they later learned that the Direc-
tor of Labour, Mr Harcourt
Brown, had removed several bal-
lot boxes from the “protective
custody” of the police without
the stakeholders present
Addressing the mixup, Mr
Gibson said that he was very dis-
appointed that the trade union
leaders would call into question
his staff’s integrity after the elec-
tion, saying: “They were the ones
who held ballots for agency shop,
election of officers, and anything
the union wanted them to do.”

Police press liaison offi-

monitoring various func-
tions scheduled to take
place over the weekend to
ensure that there is a high
degree of safety at the
events. He also urged
members of the public not
to incite or engage in any
violent altercations.

Police are also cautioning
persons who intend to go to
the beach this weekend to
enjoy themselves in a safe
manner. Police are also
advising persons who will

they feel like “something is just
within their grasp, and they don’t
know what is going to happen.”

The Minister said that he

knows that what is transpiring

‘ now between the two groups and

its leadership is not about the
process, but about whether or
not a team is declared the winner
or the loser.

As to the possibility of aire-
election, Mr Gibson said that
there must first be grounds for a
re-election, and if any group feels
that it has such grounds, ofce
the results are certified, it ¢an
take its case to the courts. |

However, he said all he wdnt-
ed was for them to “give the
process a chance to work.”

FNM rally - aftermath





Rally ‘a flop’, says Righ ,

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

THE FNM rally on Tuesday
night was “an obvious flop”,
according to PLP chairman
Raynard Rigby.

Mr Rigby said the opposition
party was “scraping the bottom
of the barrel” for issues.

“This is not surprising since
they obviously have no issues
that resonate with the Bahamian
people. It is a pathetic effort for
a supposedly major political
organisation to spend thousands
of dollars of their money in a
public meeting to say absolutely
nothing. It was obviously disap-
pointing for even supporters of
the FNM,” he said.

‘According to Mr Rigby,
every point the FNM attempted

‘to make was a repetition of “the
same old tired and discredited

logic which everyone knows is
nothing more than an attempt
by the FNM and its new old
leader to regain political power
at ariy price.

According to Mr Rigby, all
Mr Ingraham did was name
“the very things that he himself
promised during his adminis-
tration and failed to deliver.”

He gave the example of reli-
able potable water to New Prov-



idence and the Family Islands.

Mr Rigby said the former
FNM administration put empty
water pipes into the ground in
Inagua and promised the com-
munity potable water.

“Tn fact, the pipes had been in
the ground so long with no
water, many of them had to be
replaced by the PLP at a cost of
more than a million dollars.

Mr Rigby also gave the exam-
ple of the peivaliegion of
BaTelCo.. . :

He said it was outrageous for
Mr Ingraham to raise this point
after wasting more than $i40
million “in a rash, ill-judged,
irresponsibly timed and ulti-
mately failed effort to privatise
the now BTC.”

He also asked how the for-
mer prime minister could dare
to “raise the spectre” of ade-
quate infrastructure.

“Bahamians will not forget that

. his FNM left main runway 1432

at Nassau International Airport
acknowledged in the industry as a
‘disaster waiting to happen’. His
government’s incompetence
almost crippled the tourism
industry. The PLP had to spend
$40 million to rescue the nation
from Mr Ingraham’s neglect of
the airport runway,” he said.

PLP ‘will refute Ingraham’ |

Ais



IN their haste to use politics to distract the public onthebve:,
of a national budget, the FNM’s attack on government’s

enforcement of immigration iaws comes perilously close tc
“national disloyalty” according to Raynard Rigby.

The PLP chairman said it would be wise for the FNM to act
as a mature political organisation rather than a a.group, that
would do anything to win the reins of the governinent: «

“The PLP in government is inarguably committed to pro-
tecting the borders and the national integrity of the Bahamas,

while maintaining the proper respect for the dignity and rights :

of all,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Mr Rigby said that in the days ahead, the PLP se its lead-
ers will refute every claim about the government’ s perfor-
mance made by party leader Hubert Ingraham and other
speakers at the FNM rally on Tuesday night.

“Now that election fever seems to have gripped the FNM’s
new old leader, we were somewhat amused to hear Mr Ingra-
ham speak of political panic when it is clearly that it is he who
is in a panic.

“Imagine calling a major meeting for the express and pub-

licly-promised purpose of announcing and unveiling what we ©
were told would be an irresistible list of political candidates. °

only to whimper like a failed and fizzled firecracker that the list
ain’t ready,” Mr Rigby said.

Ingraham claims |
FNM supporter |
victimised by PLP

@ By CHESTER ROBARDS

FNM leader Hubert Ingra-
ham in his speech on Tuesday
night claimed that the PLP gov-
ernment victimised an FNM
supporter from Acklins
employed at the National Insur-
ance Board (NIB) because of
his political perspective.

The alleged victim, Stephen
Wilson, a grade one clerk at the
NIB, told The Tribune yesterday
that the claim of victimisation
made by Mr Ingraham was true.

“A clerk whom they have
decided is too much of an FNM
is being victimised by the full
strength of the government,”
said Mr Ingraham.

“That’s what it is, victimisa-
tion,” said Wilson.

He insists that two PLP “gen-
erals” in Acklins suggested to
PLP officials that he be moved
to the NIB in Nassau; but after
continuous pressure on the gov-
ernment and a petition signed
by more than 180 supporters of
Mr Wilson, including former
Immigration Minister Loftus
Roker, he is finally being
returned to Acklins in July.

According to Mr Ingraham’s
speech, the director of the NIB
(Lennox McCartney) told him



STEVEN Wilson of The
National Insurance Board.

(Photo: Mario Duncanson/
Tribune staff)

that the decision was deter-
mined above his level.

“All that to keep a man out of
Acklins; to keep a man from
going home,” said Mr Ingraham.

Mr Wilson explained that after
he was assured verbally in March
that he would be returned to his
former job post in Acklins, he
received a letter after five days of
working in Acklins telling him
he had to return to Nassau to
refill his position for at least one
year until someone qualified
could be hired.

A letter to Mr Wilson from
Ms Burrows’ desk outlined the
denial of his.request and the



package offered to him upon his
return, which included compen-
sation for relocation expenses, a
housing allowance of $1,500 dol-
lars a month, a NIB vehicle and
an advance of $2,170 dollars for
the period for May to June.
“That’s more than $20,000. He
makes less than that in a year.
Oh, and they have offered him
one of NIB’s cars to use while he

is in Nassau,” Mr Ingraham said. |

Ina letter of retort, Mr Wilson

reminded management that he - :

had only been hired temporarily
at the NIB Headquarters until
he attained his associate’s degree
and that he had met the person
he thought was hired to relieve
him of his position.

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

FNM Chairman Desmond
Banister said the massive

‘turnout of young people at

the party’s rally on Tuesday
was evidence that the next
generation has returned to
the FNM.

He said that thousands of
young faces could be seen in
.the crowd.

“The young people were
lured away by the false
promises of the PLP and
now they are seeing that gov-
ernment has nothing to offer
but empty promises,” Mr
Bannister said.

“At one point I tried to
get to the back of the crowd.
I have never seen it like that
before. I mean, I could not
get to the back of the crowd
and after the rally I sat down
just marvelled at what I
saw,” he said.

He said supporters were
excited by the quality of
leadership displayed and by
the slate of progressive
young speakers.

As Labour Day
approaches, its cele-

brations will be marred by the
fact that unemployment in the
Bahamas remains unacceptably
high.

The last labour report pub-
lished by the Department of
Statistics pegged unemployment
at 10.2 per cent, meaning that
almost 20,000 Bahamians
remained out of work.

The Department conducted
its new household labour sur-
vey in May of this year. It is
likely to find that the unem-
ployment rate now stands at
about nine per cent.

This would be an. improve-
ment but hardly enough to sat-
isfy Prime Minister Perry
Christie’s boast that his eco-
nomic policies will create “more
jobs than people for those jobs”.

This persistently high unem-
ployment rate must be a terrible

‘ irritant to the Christie admin-

istration, given that the econo-
my of the Bahamas has enjoyed
robust growth over the last four
years and given that the admin-
istration has announced billions
of dollars in new investments.

' The high rate of unemploy-
ment, however, should not be
surprising because “jobless
growth” is a very real phenom-
enon and announcements of
investments are not the same
as investments.

How can the economy grow
and jobs not be created? Let’s
look at three examples. First,
let us suppose that a hotel had a
net income of $100,000 in one
year and then its net income
increases to $110,000 the fol-
lowing year; this would repre-
sented a 10 per cent increase in
net income.

Now let’s suppose that it
enjoyed this growth by slightly
increasing its room rate or occu-
pancy level but not its staff lev-
el. Here you have growth with-
out job creation. If this happens
with many companies, you get
economic growth without job
creation in the economy, all oth-
er things being equal.

A second example is when a
rise in crime leads to more
spending on security equipment.
The additional spending on
security equipment may lead to

ment.

They thought the same would



Billions and billions of dol-
lars in investments should
translate into an economy on
fire where job creation is so
robust that it literally puts
upward pressures on wages
because truly there are more
jobs than people for jobs. That
is simply not the case.



Its increased spending results
in economic growth but if it
does not hire new people then
the result is jobless growth.

| he reality is that many
‘A. businesses in the

Bahamas have been catching up
from the economic lull that
kicked in in 2001 and their
growth has been more a mat-

ter of increased net income

from better operating revenue
as opposed to business expan-
sion leading to new job creation.

Many Bahamians came to put
a great deal of stock in the
prime minister’s frequent
announcements regarding the
signing of this heads of agree-
ment and that. They expected
that the jobs would be abun-
dant from these billions and bil-
lions of dollars of “unprece-
dented” investments in the
country.

In the past, under the Ingra-
ham administration, it was the
norm for an annotncement to
be made, say, today and for

happen under the Christie
administration. The problem is,
however, for all the investments
touted by the government, as
one moves about the country,
one cannot see economic activ-
ity that equals those announce-
ments.

Billions and billions of dol-
lars in investments should trans-
late into an economy on fire
where job creation is so robust
that it literally puts upward
pressures on wages because tru-
ly there are more jobs than peo-
ple for jobs. That is simply not
the case.

On the ground, the Bahami-
an economy does not look like
one that has been inundated
with foreign or domestic capital.
In fact, Bahamians have to be

grateful that high liquidity in .

the banking sector resulting
from years of credit restraint
and a long-standing unfulfilled
demand for home-ownership
continues to float the construc-
tion industry and give life to our
economy.

in such a way as to satisfy politi-

If the unemployment rate is
to go down at a faster rate, the
government’s economic policy
must be more targeted and
aggressive. Business people,
foreign and local, must have the

TO WORK? |

A his recent mini-con-
vention Prime Minis-..

ter Christie said that his gov-'.
ernment had created enough’
jobs for anyone who truly want-:
ed to work. This was an alarm-
ing statement from the prime,
minister.

Could it really be that the.
thousands of Bahamians who
are jobless are really so simply
because they do not truly want
to work? Is it the case that
these thousands of people pre-
fer to have bills mounting, col-
lectors calling and their homes
in danger of foreclosure sim-
ply because they do not desire
to work? Is this what has hap-
pened to the 1,600 Royal Oasis
workers, many of whom
remain unemployed today? Is
this what is happening with the
young men and women who
contact me daily looking for a
job? Is this what the problem is
for that mother who ended up
in the hospital with heart pal-
pitations because she was fret-
ting about not being able to
find a job?

Are all these people simply
lacking a desire to work and
therefore not applying for the
thousands of jobs that are out
there? A cussin’ man would
have let a couple go just now
but I’m not one of them. | sim-
ply say that this is nonsense!

There are not enough jobs in
the country for thousands ‘of
Bahamians, not in terms of.
numbers and not in terms of
types. That is why the unem-
ployment rate remains high.
The government’s economic
policies and the country’s eco-
nomic performance over the
past several years have not been
able to solve this problem. It is
as simple as that!

Perhaps if Prime Minister
Christie embraces this fact ‘as
opposed to live in denial of it,
he can tweak his policies to
achieve better results. Until
then, the unemployed remain
jobless.

There were 67 traffic fatali-
ties last year and there have
been 17 so far this year.

The three top finishers
received $5,000, $3,000 and
$1,500 in scholarships respec-
tively to the college of their
choice.

All nine finalists were
rewarded with laptop comput-
ers, trophies and certificates.

Shireen said she is particular-
ly pleased with the fact that a
student from a public school

She noted that negative com-
ments that are often made
about the public school system —
but she is testimony that all is

“It shows that there is hope
and the future is looking
good,” said Shireen, who will
attend the College of the
Bahamas to study foreign lan-
guages.

Doris Johnson principal
Geoffrey McPhee echoed her
sentiments. “The public school
system has always been doing
well, but it is just now that peo-
ple are taking notice of us. We
have a number of students in

You'll be hearing some more
from us,” he said.

main shareholders - the family of the late Edward St George and

the Haywards earlier this year over Freeport’s future direc-:

tion and the strategy to be employed.

The Tribune had received reports that relations between Mr
Francis and the two families were less than harmonious two
months ago.

When interviewed by this newspaper at the time, Mr Francis

said there was a "healthy debate" taking place within the Grand
Bahama Port Authority on devising the best strategy to max-
imise Freeport's economic potential.

“It's absolutely critical we have that debate right now," Mr
Francis said of internal discussions on Freeport's future devel-
opment. "I'm satisfied with the results of that debate up to
now. It's been very useful."

Describing the relationship with the Hayward and St George

families as "continuing to be what it should", Mr Francis said:
"With our shareholders we want to see a very aggressive devel-
opment of the business here, and we intend to deliver that.
We have a new business plan which is ready."

If Mr Francis departs, the move is likely to be greeted with
dismay by some on Grand Bahama, since many saw him as
the ideal man to take over from the late Mr St George.

Apart from being Bahamian, Mr Francis - as a former Cen-

tral Bank of the Bahamas governor and ex-international banker. : i
- had the contacts and international reputation to attract com-'
panies and industries that would have been a good fit’ for.

Freeport and attract new businesses to generate erowtl ¢ the Gyo
families did not agree: i!

future workers.

It said the proposal to create
a national health insurance
scheme managed by the NIB is
still not fully developed and its
macro-economic impact will
need to be “carefully
assessed”.

Nevertheless, the mission
agreed that higher involvement
in the health sector will be ben-
eficial for the economy and
supported the government’s
view that the scheme should be
fully funded and should not
compromise the country’s own
collection of funds.

During his budget communi-
cation Mr Christie said that on
the “most crucial issues of -
thinking” government was very
close to that of the IMF.

“Such differences as there
may, be are not substantial and
relate more to matters of prac-
ticality and timing rather than
to policy disagreements,” Mr

Christie said.

Generally, the IMF said that
he Bahamas’ near term eco-
omic outlook is favourable
nd that the country’s econom-
¢ activity has intensified, infla-
‘ion has remained low and
competitiveness in the tourism
‘ctor has been maintained.
However, it said that the key

challenge will be to continue to
strengthen the fiscal and mone-

tary policy framework and to
press forward with structural
reforms in order to enhance. '
the economy’s resilience as *« '
well as its growth and spmneN
tiveness.

In addition, while the IMF.

“Even as’ the -Christie gov-
ernmént: orchestrates its latest
‘immigration farce’ of night
raids,” 'said'‘Mr Ingraham on
Tuesday evening; “they know
that illegal or undocumented
persons” continue to provide
services in their low-cost hous-
ing construction programme.”

When ‘asked about Mr

Ingrahdm’s comments, 'the for-

mer housing minister-turned-

immigration chief replied: “I’

have ng comments to make
about, that because I have no
knowledge of any illegal i immi-
grants working on any houses
for us.’

“As far as I am concerned,”
Mr Gibson said, “that washed
up, rejected, tired, wannabe
prime minister is continuing
on with ‘this rhetoric and mak-
ing the’same,presentation that
he was making prior to the
election when he was rejected.
He just keeps regurgitating the
same thing over andiover
again, Acting like a man who
is mad.”

When asked if his miners
was able to verify that, only
Bahamians were used during
the building of his low-cost
housing, projects, Minister, Gib-
son said that he could not, but
he also questioned whether Mr
Ingraham could prove that his
agency-did use illegal nan
grants-.12 5

The minister went on to
challenge Mr Ingraham by say-
ing: “You say they are illegal,
you prove that they are illegal,
because I hired Bahamians.”

Mr Gibson said that hous-
ing records “show that every
single contractor who we gave
houses to build were all
Bahamians.” i

“You can check — the

“We only hire Bahamians.”

Leila Green.

It has been three weeks
since The Tribune made a
request for the very informa-
tion from the housing ministry,
only to be told: “When we are
ready and we are able to, we.
will provide it to you.”

After allegations began sur-

- facing that the Ministry of
' Housing had been awarding a

disproportionate number of its

“building © contracts to

“favoured” contractors, The
Tribune attempted to meet
with the permanent secretary
to “check the records.”

The meeting never took
place, but on May 9, Mr Wis-
dom phoned The Tribune to
say that he had compiled a list
of the contractors associated
with building projects and
would have it sent the next
morning.

According to an administra-
tive official attached to the
minister and permanent secre-

tary’s office, the list was, in,

fact, sent. She said it would
have arrived at our office in
15 minutes. When the list nev-
er arrived, The Tribune
phoned to find out what had
happened to it. The reporter
was told that Mr Wisdom was
in the House of Assembly, but
would call The Tribune as
soon as he was out. Mr Wis-
dom later called to say that the
information had not been sent,

would send it. However, to

The project was launched
with a $10,000 pledge from
members of The College of The
Bahamas’ Alumni Hall of Fame
— Bishop Neil Ellis, Larry Gib-
‘son, Laura Pratt-Charlton,
Tanya McCartney and Vernice
Walkine.

Tanya Northeast, chair of the
Class (centre) along with other

involved in the College of The
Bahamas, particularly as it
moves toward becoming a Uni-
versity.

Mr Saunders said it was now
their opportunity to ensure that
good education is available for
succeeding generations of
Bahamians.

COB council chairman,
Franklyn Wilson and acting
president, Dr Rhonda Chip-
man-Johnson, echoed Mr Saun-
ders’ call for involvement and
participation. Dr Chipman-

THE International Mone-
tary Fund (IMF) has projectéd
that the Bahamas’ real GDP.
growth rate will. increase to 4.3
per cent in the fiscal year.2006-
2007, up from the 3.4 per cent
growth recorded last-year, with
the Prime Minister yesterday
describing this nation’s eco-

nomic prospécts as “unprece-

dented”.

Although the IMF said
utemployment in the Bahamas
remained at 10.25 per cent in
2005, Mr Christie talked up-his
government’ s economic
achievements in yesterday’s
Budget presentation, with one
éye.on the upcoming election.

But unemployment
still over 10%

In nominal terms, the
Bahamas’ GDP growth is
expected to increase from 4.7
during 2005-06: to 6.5 per cent
in 2006-07 and 6.7 per cent in
2007-2008. The nominal mea-
surement of GDP growth
strips out the impact of infla-
tion.

Looking forward, the IMF
also projected that there would
be slight declines in both real
and nominal GDP in the years
following 2007-2008, falling to
3.5: per.cent and 5.6 per cent

THE International Mone-
tary Fund (IMF) has urged

| the Government to set a tar-

get of reducing the fiscal
deficit by 0.5 per cent of
GDP every fiscal year, which
would enable it to achieve a

‘| balanced budget in 2010-2011
and hit its debt management |

goals.

The Government’s pro-
jected 2006-2007 GFS fiscal
deficit of 1.9 per cent would
achieve the 0.5 per cent of
GDP reduction goal, given

‘that the projected fiscal

| deficit for 2004-2005 is now

likely to be 2.4 per cent.

In its latest findings on the
Bahamian economy, the IMF
said that while it approved of

the Government setting a tar-

get for reducing the central
government debt to GDP

| ratio to 30 per’ cent in the



| key first step”

medium term, “the debt ratio
has continued to increase,
notwithstanding the stronger
growth and the reduction in
the fiscal deficit”.

| By targeting a 0.5 percent -
| reduction in the fiscal deficit

per annum, the Fund said the
Government would be able
to achieve its target central
government debt to. GDP

| ratio by 2013.

The IMF described as “
towards this
a$ bringing the fiscal deficit
below 2 per cent of GDP
during the 2007-2007 fiscal
year, something it has pro-
jected for the GFS deficit
measurement. .

This measurement, though,

strips out the costs of debt -

redemption, which in 2006-
2007 are projected to increase
by $60 million to $103 mil-
lion compared to the 2005-
2006 fiscal period: Including
debt redemption, the total
deficit will be $228 million -

| higher than the $186 million

Fund says ‘critical’
to hold firm on

public sector wages |

projected for 2005-2006.
The Fund said: “The mis-
sion estimates that new fis-
cal measures yielding about
0.5 per cent of GDP will be
needed, which could include
a number of policy steps that
are already under considera-

tion: a reduction in customs -

duty exemptions, hikes. in
business licences for offshore
firms, higher excise taxes for
tobacco and liquor, increas-
ing the ceiling for property
taxes, and rationalising trans-

’ fers to public corporations.

“A well-articulated action
plan to introduce these mea-
sures would be very useful.”

Yet Prime Minister Perry
Christie yesterday reiterated

that the 2006-2007 Budget °

contained no new taxes, .a

position he has stuck to since. '

his government came to. pow-
er in 2002, despite prodding
from the IMF.

In addition, he said the
2006-2007 Budget contained
no tax increases, claiming
that small rises in fees
charged for government ser-
vices were not the same as
tax increases.

The IMF mission, which
visited the Bahamas between
April 24 and May 1; said that
while the Government had
“slightly exceeded” its fiscal
deficit target for 2004-2005,

the one for 2005-2006 was”

likely to fall below the pro-
jected 2.75 per cent of GDP
goal for 2005-2006, ending at
2.4 per cent.

certed role in the development
of key IT infrastructure in the
Bahamas. The benefits in
establishing such an organisa-
tion, I believe, would extend
to government, and the busi-
ness community, as well as IT
professionals themselves.

Government

Governments around the
world are increasingly embrac-
ing information technology as
a tool to drive economic
growth through e- ~Business ini-
tiatives and legislation, as well
as a tool to deliver essential

zens through online e-Gov-

ernment initiatives. Recent e-
Business and e-Government
initiatives by the Bahamian
government are a clear indica-
tion that the Bahamas is head-
ing in the same direction.

The primary benefit that an
association of IT professionals
would provide government
would be to bring its combined
expertise to bear on these and
other information technology
initiatives, as well as act as an
advisory counsel that is not
biased to any one vendor or
consulting group.

I am convinced that by
including the IT professional
community at the early stages



Re aa

of these initiatives, the Gov-
ernment would not only save
time and money but also
ensure that a range of solutions
are considered.

Business Community

One of the key frustrations I
often hear from businesses
looking to hire an in-house IT
professional, or engage an out-
side IT provider, is that they
have no real way of knowing
just how suitable they are for
the work at hand. This situa-
tion is made even more diffi-
cult by the fact that there are
so many different qualifica-
tions for IT professionals.






































































By establishing a ‘registered’
list of IT professionals and
providers online, and creating
a mechanism for employers
and customers to rate the qual-
ity of the work performed by
those IT professionals or
providers, the association could
provide businesses with an
invaluable selection tool.
Those who consistently render
poor service would be identi-
fied, and those who render
excellent service would rise to
the top. An excellent example
of how this tool could work
can be found on
www.guru.com.

IT Professionals
One of the most enjoyable
things about the work I do is

that I often get the opportuni- -

ty to meet with IT profession-
als in both large and small
companies throughout the
Bahamas. More than anything
else, I am often surprised at
how little interaction IT pro-
fessiotials from one company
have with IT professionals
from another organisation.
What’s more, they are often
facing the same challenges but
without the benefit of each
other’s knowledge and expe-
riences.

In a very simple yet powerful
way, I believe the establish-
ment of an association of IT
professionals would create an
environment that encourages
and supports greater interac-
tion between IT professionals

Current account

deficit to hit 11.5%

B@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE rise in global oil prices
increased both inflation and
the Bahamas’ current account
deficit in 2005, the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund (IMF)
said. Although the impact is
expected to ease in 2006, the
current account deficit for this
year is projected to widen fur-
ther to 11.5 per cent.

In its latest consultation with
the Government, the IMF said
the current account deficit had
increased to 9 per cent of gross
domestic product (GDP) in
2005, “mainly reflecting the
surge in the oil import bill to 9
per cent of GDP”. This was 2.5
per cent higher than 2004. —

In addition, the Fund said
global oil prices increased the
average inflation rate to 2.25
per cent year-on-year in 2005,
compared to 1 per cent in 2004.
However, the inflation rate was
expected to ease to 1.75 per

IMF, from Page 1B

cent this year.

The IMF’s interim report
said 85 per cent of the
Bahamas’ current account
deficit was financed by private
capital inflows into the e¢ono-
my, largely. generated. from
various foreign | direct invest-
ment. projects. A $90 million
increase in the foreign curren-
cy reserves also helped finance
this.

The IMF said: “Following
the surge in credit and higher
demand for imports, net inter-
national reserves dipped in
2005 to the equivalent of 99
per cent of base money, but
have since then recovered and
currently stand at 105 per cent
of base money.

“Construction-related
imports and an additional
increase in the oil import bill
are projected to lead to a fur-
ther widening of the external
current account deficit in 2006
to 11.5 per cent of GDP per
cent, despite the expected

increase in tourism receipts.”

Credit extended to the pri-
vate sector increased by 14.25
per cent in 2005, compared to
growth of 6 per cent in 2004,
most of this going on construc-
tion, mortgages and personal
consumption.

However, credit growth
declined to an annualised rate
of 10.5 per cent in the 2006 first
quarter as bank liquidity
declined.

The IMF said non-perform-
ing loans fell to 4.5 per cent of
total loans in 2005, down from
5 per cent the previous year,
but average provisions
remained at only 45 per cent of
non-performing loans.

“Rapid credit growth caused
the ratio of bank liquid assets
to total deposits to decline,
with a few banks experiencing
temporary shortfalls in liquid-
ity requirements,” the IMF
said.

It added that high commer-
cial bank profits, standing at 3



ments in tax administration boosted interna-
tional trade tax and stamp tax collections, and
are projected to have raised the tax/GDP ratio
by. 1.75 per cent of GDP in 2005-2006.

»“However, the stronger revenue would be
partially offset by an increase in the wage bill
resulting from the public sector wage settle-
ments, and by transfers to finance hurricane
relief programmes, airport reconstruction and
losses of public companies.

“The deficit has been mainly financed domes-
tically, and central government debt is expected
to‘rise further to 38.75 per cent of GDP in mid-
2006, with total public debt reaching 48.5 per
cént.”

“And the IMF warned the Government that
“careful management” of public sector wages
was “essential for both fiscal discipline and
external competitiveness”.

“It said: “The central government wage bill is
expected to rise, to 10.5 per cent of GDP in fis-
cal 2005-2006. Although other Caribbean coun-
tries show higher ratios, this level is high by
international standards.

“If the wage rate keeps on growing at a fast
pace, it risks spilling over into the private sector,
eroding external competitiveness and hurting
the Bahamas’ ability to attract foreign invest-
ment. “The challenge will be to ensure that real
wages grow in line with productivity, and the
mission welcomes government’s recent efforts to
contain wage pressures.”

The IMF also urged the Government to look

at efficiency gains in the management of public —

enterprises.

It said: “Bahamasair and Water & Sewerage
incur losses to a large extent covered by the
Government. Further efforts to reduce costs
and adopt sound commercial practices in these
enterprises would provide room for well-tar-
geted subsidies.”

The Government was urged to make “faster _

progress” in privatising the Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC), and outsource
management of Bahamasair.

The Prime Minister yesterday said any dif-
ferences between the Government and the IMF
were on technicalities, rather than policies.

per cent of assets, showed
there was plenty of capacity to
increase provisioning, while the
Central Bank needed to ensure
“prudent credit and liquidity
management” even though
international reserves seemed
adequate.

On financial services regu-

lation, the IMF said a proposal ,
to merge all the supervisory

agencies into one to create a
super-regulator for the sector
had been forwarded to the
Cabinet, but such a body
would need “sufficient staff”
if it was formed.

The Fund encouraged the
Government to propose fur-
ther legislation to aid informa-

tion sharing with foreign bank .

supervisors and regulators.

It also backed the Govern-
ment’s plan to bring in “mini-
mum disclosure requirements”
for all Bahamas-based bank

and trust companies, and:con=\

THE Prime Minister said
yesterday that “major changes
in the culture of the public sec-
tor” will be required to cope
with the infrastructure
demands imposed by the
“seale” of tourism-related
investment projects.

In unveiling the 2006-2007
Budget, Perry Christie said the
demand for public services
and infrastructure from these
developments, especially in
the Family Islands, would cre-
ate “exceptional demands on
management of the public sec-
tor”.

He added that among those
on the frontline would be Per-
manent Secretaries and man-
agers at various government
ministries, plus the heads and
management executives at the
public utility corporations,
such as BEC.

They would be called upon

Mr Christie said the Office
of the Prime Minister would
take the lead in co-ordinating
this and providing strategic
planning, but described it as
a “major aspect of public sec-
tor reform”.

To reduce the demands on
the Public Treasury, Mr
Christie said the provision and
financing of infrastructure and
public services for investment
projects would be a joint ven-
ture between the developers
and the Government.

He added that this form of a

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

THE Inteational Mone-
tary Fund (IMF) has urged
the Government to adjust
National Insurance Board
(NIB) contributions and
benefits as quickly as possi-
ble, as any delays in imple-
menting suggested reforms
would penalise future work-
ers and cause “more dras-
tic” changes.

In advising that the Gov-
ernment not delay on imple-
menting the Social Security
Reform Commission’s rec-
ommendations, the IMF said
it recommended, “an early
adjustment of contributions
and benefits, as the experi-
ence in other countries sug-
gests that delays would sim-
ply require more drastic
adjustments at a later stage,
and would impose an unfair
burden of adjustment on
future workers”.

- The IMF said the pro-
posed National Health
Insurance (NHI) scheme’s
macroeconomic impact
would need to be “carefully
-assessed”, although it sup-
ported the Government’s
contention ‘that greater
investment in healthcare
would benefit the Bahami-
an economy.

Prime Minister Perry
Christie in his Budget
address again reiterated the
Government’s commitment
to NHI, saying: “We are lay-
ing the foundation for an
appropriate system of

would enable the developers
to demonstrate good “corpo-
rate governance”, but said the
whole infrastructure provid-
ed “great pressure for effi-
ciency and effectiveness in the
delivery of public services”.
In its consultation with the
Government earlier this
month, the International Mon-
etary Fund (IMF) said it had
to assess the fiscal impact of
the investment incentives it
provided. :
And the IMF added that it
welcomed plans to minimise
public spending in relation to
resort investments. "
“When going ahead with
the programmes, care will be
needed to contain fiscal pres-
sures from infrastructure
spending or tax concessions,
which could result in higher
direct, guaranteed or contin-
gent debt,” the IMF said. ~

National Health Insurance.”

He described the project,
as “one of the most impor-
tant healthcare reforms in:
our nation’s history”. ee

Meanwhile, the Prime,
Minister said he was plan-.
ning no changes to the
Bahamian tax system, which-
is presently a tax on inter-.
national trade, relying heav-
ily on import and customs'
duties.

He added that no tax
reforms would be undertak=
en without “full consulta=
tion” with the Bahamian
public, as the IMF again sug-
gested implementing a val?
ue-added tax (VAT) to
“strengthen the fiscal posi«
tion and improve competi-
tiveness...” :

The Fund said VAT could
prove to be a more stable
revenue stream and efficient
revenue stream, and its
introduction would need the
support of taxpayer educa-
tion and administrative
resources.

It added that the existing
import tax system was “rela-
tively distortionary, vulnera-
ble to external shocks” and
inconsistent with any move
for the Bahamas to become
a full member of the World
Trade Organisation (WTO).

On the WTO and other
free trade agreements such
as the Caribbean Single
Market & Economy
(CSME), Mr Christie said
again that he would not sign
the Bahamas on to such
treaties without prior con:
sultation with the public.

Children’s clothing line
set for Bahamas launch

A VICE-president with the

world’s largest home improve-
ment retailer, Home Depot. will
launch a children’s clothing line
in the Bahamas and offer fur-
ther business opportunities for
Bahamians, partners in the
‘CEO Network Conference
have announced.
- The Ministry of Tourtsm and
the CEO Network will present
the LOth annual CEO Network
Conference at British Colonial
Hilton on June 14-16. One of
the opportunities to be high-
lighted at the conference will
be the introduction of ihe chil-
dren’s line.

“Our conference environ-
ment has helped us and inter-
‘national leaders to understand
‘that potential and opportuni-
‘ties are not only available in
‘some of the more developed
countries,” said Deborah
Bartlett, president of the CEO
Network.

“They are looking to us now
to. serve as adaunching pad for
‘what can be considered good
Opportunities. And [am partic-
ularly encouraged that this
clothing line will be awarded to
a Bahamian for distributorship
in the Bahamas.”

Ms Bartlett said the CEO
Network had always been com-

mitted to promoting Bahamian
ownership of the economy.

‘Together with the Ministry of

‘Tourism, she said it had facili-
tated partnerships between
Bahamian and international
businesses,

Through securing the Dud-
lev's Bahamas franchise, Ms
Bartlett said CEO Network
sought to do more than pro-
viding products to hair salons.
Che Dudley’s Bahamas fran-
chise presents an opportunity
to supply hotels with hair prod-
ucts, she added

“We have established a part-
nership between US-based
entrepreneurs and Bahamians
so that we can make the sham-
poos and the lotions in the
Bahamas, again giving us anoth-
er skill-diversifying so we can
keep more of the money here,”
Ms Bartlett said. “We have
Matrix Manufacturing that is
doing that.”

CEO Network has also been |

able to secure Bahamian par-
ticipation in YTB Travel, an
online travel company that
competes with Travelocity and
similar companies.

Other opportunities have
been created through partner-
ships with Lurmiture companies,
Ms. Bartlett said.

“We have to identify the

‘ opportunities that will provide

the linkages to get into our cash
flow business,” she said.
“Instead of all of the money
going out of the country, we
need to find ways to keep more
of this money in our country.
So we have done that.

“We have gone out there and
found some of the best furni-
ture manufacturers, linking
them with Bahamians so that
we can again diversify the
opportunities or contribute to
diversifying the opportunities
for Bahamians.”

David Johnson, deputy direc-
tor-general responsible for
investment and planning in the
Ministry of Tourism, said the
creation and expansion of link-
ages between tourism and other
sectors of the economy was
important.

He pointed out that the link-
ages to tourism are being
strengthened, since more
Bahamian-made products are
supplying the tourism industry.

“We have evidence of this
from a study - the Tourism
Satellite Account (TSA) - that
was just completed by Ministry
of Tourism and its partners in
government and financial ser-
vices.” Mr Johnson said.

increase by $60 million to $103
million, compared to the 2005-
2006 fiscal period. Including
debt redemption, the total
deficit for 2006-2007 will be
$228 million - higher than the
$186 million projected for
2005-2006.

In addition, much of the
Budget increases for the
Defence Force and police are
going on salaries for the lower
ranks - Marine Seamen in the
former, and those ranked
sergeant and below in the
police.

Claims

Asa result, the Government

is likely to face claims that the
Budget increases for these
agencies are designed to secure
votes at the next general elec-
tion.

The recurrent spending
increase of $172 million
includes an increase of $56 mil-
lion for debt servicing; a $14
million dollar pay award for
the public servige due on July
1, 2006; and $5 million for

- increments due in 2006-2007.

In addition, the Budget pro-
vides $40 million to cover addi-
tional expenditure arising from
the 2005-2006 budget, includ-
ing $6 million to the Public
Hospital Authority; $8 million
for the National Emergency
Management Agency; $4.6 mil-
lion for customs overtime; and
$3.6 million for ‘the Depart-
ment of Education.

The major recurrent spend-
ing provisions for 2006-2007
are: a 15.4 per cent increase
for the police force; an 18.9 per
cent increase for the defence
force; a 13 per cent increase
for immigration; a 7.1 per cent
in the provision for prisons; an
increase of 13.1 per cent for

PUBLIC HOSPI

EMERGENC

the judicial department; 12.6
per cent for Magistrates
Courts; and an increase of 10.8
per cent for the Court of
Appeal.

In addition, a 21.3 per cent
increase has been granted for
the Office of the Attorney
General and the Ministry of
Legal Affairs. The Department
of Social Services and Com-
‘munity Development receives
a budget increase of 10.2 per

cent, while the Public Hospital |

Authority gets 11.4 per cent
more and the combined. edu-
cational heads receive 9.8 per
cent more. .

. The urban renewal pro-:
gramme receives an increase
of $2.45 million more. A 53.8
per cent increase has been allo-
cated to mail boat service con-
tracts, and 15.8 per cent more

has been granted to the

Department and Ministry of
Public Works.

On capital spending alloca-
tions, there were again major
increases for the law enforce-
ment agencies: 22 per cent for
the police force; 51.1 per cent
for the Defence Force; 77 per
cent for the prisons.

The Customs Department
will receive 7 per cent more,
while education receives 24.4
per cent and the Public Hospi-
tals Authority received an
increase of 4.8 per cent.

Turning to revenues, the

Prime Minister announced that |

the estimated total take for
2006-2007 was $1.345 billion,
an increase of 11.1 per cent
over the provisional outturn of
$1.212 billion for 2005-2006.

tion represented a $67 million

@ By JOYCE M.
ROSENBERG
AP Business Writer

“NEW YORK (AP) — The
ea of hurricane season is a
- ‘reminder to small business
nett ce that they need to get

heir companies prepared for
‘All kinds of disasters — storms,
fees earthquakes, even van-
‘dals. It’s a hard task to do
‘when you're trying to run a
‘company and bring in new cus-
fomers, but the potential loss-
‘es from a disaster make plan-
‘hing crucial.

4 Many business owners are
‘understandably daunted by the
‘{dea of putting together a plan.
‘But by setting priorities, and
‘also getting some help in
‘putting a plan together, it can
‘be done, and in a short amount
“of time.

‘| “Jt doesn’t have to be a mil-
‘Jion dollar situation — it can
“be very small, affordable,” said
‘Tom Serio, director of global
-business continuity manage-
ment for Office Depot Inc.
“Start with the basics and
“Piove ahead.”

‘fe/A though Serio’s company

" dons across the country, he
Said businesses of all sizes face
“some of the same issues in dis-
waster planning. The most
‘important aspects of a plan, he
“said, should be protecting a
epmpany *s employees and its






irst, he snide an owner
‘Should educate employees
about disaster preparation for
“their families and homes.
5 “If an employee can survive
“a disaster at home, that means
“they? ll be back to business
-much quicker,” he said.
‘, Serio noted that before Hur-
ticane. Katrina, a business own-
rer with a disaster plan typical-
sly would collect-employees’
»phone numbers — home and
‘cell — and expect that they
‘could be reached. But, he said,
‘the massive destruction and

dislocation caused by Katrina

carried with it a lesson that dis-

aster planning needed to be

_More comprehensive than any-

one previously thought.

Office Depot’s plan now
calls for employees to supply
contact information such as a
spouse’s cell phone number,
home e-mail addresses (espe-
cially since many people can
access their e-mail remotely)
and phone numbers for friends
and family who live out of
state.

“You can’t have enough
contact information for
employees,” Serio said.

Computer

Preserving computer data —
particularly all information
pertaining to your customers
— will ensure that you can stay
in operation, even if your
premises are destroyed. Busi-

nesses have a variety of data-

backup options available to
them, ranging: from storing
records on CDs or other
portable devices to duplicat-
ing them on a remote server
operated by a company known
as a data vault.

Your best bet might be
backup at a remote site,
although it’s likely ta be the
most expensive. If you choose
that route, make sure it’s a site
that’s quite remote — as Kat-
rina proved, 20 miles away
wasn’t far enough.

Serio noted, though, that
storing on devices like CDs is

quite inexpensive and effec- -

tive, as long as you keep them
with you, and not leave them
in the office where they could
be destroyed or inaccessible.
Another important consid-
eration is where you’d operate
if your premises were wiped
out — and how you and your
employees might get there.
Although hurricane regions
get much of the attention this
time of year, disaster can strike
a business anywhere — and it

doesn’t have to be a tornado or
earthquake. Levees can be
breached, rivers can overflow
their banks, and man-made
disasters like fires can also
wipe out a business.

But Herb Mitchell, associ-
ate administrator of the.Small
Business Administration’s
Office of Disaster Assistance,
said that while ‘there is height-

ened interest in disaster prep in —

places like the Gulf Coast,
“beyond that, there does seem
to be a tendency toward busi-
ness as usual.”

Small businesses that need
help in putting plans together
can get some help on the Inter-
net. The SBA’s Web site has a
disaster preparedness section
at www.sba.gov/beawareand-

_ prepare/business.html. The

Institute for Business & Home
Safety Web site has a down-
loadable toolkit called Open
for Business that includes a
considerations you need to
make in preparing for a disas-
ter. You can link directly to it

www.ibhs.org/business(under-
score)protection.

Office Depot also has a
downloadable brochure on dis-
aster prep at www.officede-
pot.com/getprepared.

Steve Lewis, editor-in-chief
of “Edwards Disaster Recov-
ery Directory,” said that dis-
aster preparation can mean
getting your company ready
for somebody else’s disaster —
if your key supplier is wiped
out, your business could be
hurt even if you’re far away
from the afflicted area.

He recalled that when a

‘massive earthquake hit Kobe,

Japan, in 1995, many U.S. busi-
nesses were affected. “Their
suppliers were located around
the area of the earthquake,”
he said.

So disaster planning means
being ready for almost any cat-
astrophe, whether: it hits your
business alone, your town, or
someplace far away.

50-year mortgages lower
monthly payments but they
can cost more in long run

@ By EILEEN ALT POWELL
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — When
it comes to home mortgages,
some people are thinking real-
ly long term by taking 40-year
or 45-year — or even 50-year —
loans.

The attraction is lower

monthly payments, which make
these mortgages more manage-
able for some families. The dis-
advantage is that consumers
can end up paying much more
interest over the life of the loan
than they would with a tradi-
tional 30-year mortgage.

Only a handful of lenders
currently are writing 40 to 50-
year mortgages, but experts
believe others will follow if they
prove popular with home buy-
ers.

’ Among the consumers look-

ing at a 50-year mortgage is.

Larisa Meyer, 35, who is buying
a 100-year-old home in Min-
neapolis.

Meyer, a: self- employed
graphic artist, said it’s impor-
tant to her to keep her month-
ly mortgage payment low
because her income can be
irregular. At the same time, she
doesn’t want an exotic mort-
gage, such as an interest-only
loan, because she wants to build
equity in her new home.

year mortgage is the payment
size,” Meyer said. “I also know
that in a few years, I will have
some equity, It won’t be a ton,
but there will be some.”

Still, consumers should be
forewarned that most of the
longer-term mortgages do not
have a fixed interest rate like
many 30-year mortgages do.

The loan Meyer is consider-
ing carries an interest rate of
6.5 per cent for the first five
years, and then the rate can be
adjusted annually, said Eric Pir-
ius, a loan officer at River City
Mortgage. & Financial in

‘Eagan, Minn., who is working

with Meyer. It also requires a
“balloon payment” of the out-
standing balance after 30 years,
although the presumption is
that most mortgage holders will
have refinanced long before
that. ;

“T haven’t talked to a client
yet who intends to hold a mort-
gage for 50 years,” Pirius said.
“But that low payment helps
people qualify. It gets them into
that home and getting the tax
benefits of ownership.”

He calculated that a con-
sumer who took out a‘$250,000
mortgage at 6.5 per cent for a
30-year term would pay about
$1,580 per month. That mort-
gage on a 50-year payment
schedule would require month-
ly payments of about $1,410 —
a savings of about $170 a
month.

Some housing experts are
skeptical that the 40- to 50-year
mortgages will be widely used.

Keith T Gumbinger, vice

president of HSH Associates, '

a mortgage information service
based in Pompton Plains, N.J.,
said 40-year mortgages have
come in-and out of favour, last

gaining some popularity in the
mid-1980s when interest rates
were so high many consumers
didn’t qualify for loans.

The major drawback of the
longer-term mortgages, he
believes, is that “equity builds
extremely slowly” so that
there’s little advantage com-
pared with interest-only loans.

And, he said, a consumer
could end up spending a lot
more in interest payments.

For comparison purposes,
Gumbinger calculated the cost
of mortgages of various lengths
with a fixed rate of interest: On
a $275,000 mortgage for 30

years at a fixed rate of 6.75 per-

cent, a consumer would make
monthly payments of $1,783.64
and pay $367,112 in interest
over the life of the loan. That
same mortgage at the likely
higher rate of 7 percent for a
40-year term would require
monthly payments of $1,708.93
and result in $545,290 in inter-
est. At 7.25 per cent for 50
years, monthly payments would

be $1,707.45 and total interest

would be $749,476.

“You really can’t think of
these as long-term financing
vehicles because the interest

cost is overwhelming,”
Gumbinger said.

Anthony Hsieh, chief exec-

utive officer of LendingTree, -
an online mortgage market-
place based in Charlotte, N.C.,

said he believed some lenders’
were promoting 40- and 50-year
mortgages “to stir up some

excitement” as interest rates

have risen and cooled the hous-

ing market.
Hsieh said he didn’t know of

any lenders offering 50-year ©

mortgages with the rate fixed ©
for the entire term.

“They call it a 50-year, but’
the-rate generally is fixed for

only five or 10 years and they:
use a 50-year amortization’

table,” he said.
This configuration, he said

makes the longer term mort-.i »:
gages look more like 5-1 hybrid ).::

loans, which have fixed rates of).
interest for the first five years’: »:

then start adjusting, or to some
of the interest-only mortgages.
All of these mortgages, he

noted, appeal to many of: ©
today’s buyers “because they, .:
look at monthly payment and::
cash flow as their only objec-\..
tive” when selecting a mort- .,-
gage. ; ruts

investors on paying a dividend,
now that it had returned to
profitability.

He Said: “I assure you that
the Bdard is anxious to resume
providing such returns to
shareholders as early as possi-
ble. 8

“However, the current
investinent thrust is to further
strengthen the company’s
financial position and build for
the future by improving its
physical infrastructure and
investing in new medical tech-
nology: that will facilitate the
expansion of existing services
and the introduction of new
ones:;~

“In, the circumstances, the
Board believes it would be
/more!prudent for management
to mamtain the current posi-
tion of reinvesting available
resources to help ensure future
growth. .

Strategy

“This strategy should be
maintained for the next fiscal
year)at least, and assuming
continued strong profitability
and positive cash flow, the
company should then be better
positioned to revisit its divi-
dend distribution policy in the
nearest term.”

DHHS net income growth
was driven by a 17.3 per cent





or $5.543 million increase in
patient service revenues. The
average daily census, which
measured inpatient activity
across all DHHS service
departments, rose by 17.2 per
cent over the previous year,
returning to levels seen in the

2002 fiscal year.

Fiscal

Other revenues in fiscal 2006
grew by $189,000 or 42.1 per
cent to give DHHS total rev-
enues of $37.563 million, a rise
of $5.732 million or 17.7 per
cent.

DHHS said the revenues
increases reflected “significant
levels” of Intensive Care Unit
and Intermediate Care Unit
patient days. Patient days in
these two departments
increased 23.9 per cent over
fiscal 2005, a period where the
increase was 24.6 per cent
higher than fiscal 2004.

Total patient days of 12,415
was “the highest level of activ-
ity” seen by DHHS, while
adult patient days for the 12
months to January 31, 2006,
increased by 16.6 per cent over
2005, which in turn saw a 9.3
per cent rise over 2004.

Total admissions reached
4,081 in 2006, with the average
daily census recording 34
patients.

Visits to DHHS’ sessional
and wound care department
rose by 30.6 per cent in fiscal
2006, with the emergency room
seeing the highest number of
visits for four years.

However, DHHS said oper-

ating expenses increased in just
about every category. In com-
mon with many other busi-
nesses, the BISX-listed com-
pany saw its utility costs rise
by 22.1 per cent in 2006, due
chiefly to. “the spike in elec-
tricity costs”.

The provision for doubtful
accounts increased as a per-
centage of revenues by 6.7 per
cent during fiscal 2006, up from
3.5 per cent the previous year.
The raw amount was $1.4 mil-
lion, a rise of 28.4 per cent.

DHHS said: “This significant
increase reflects the company’s
continuing exposure for unin-
sured and underinsured cus-
tomers. It also reflects some
deterioration in collectibilily
from several significant third
party payers and the compa-
ny’s consistent efforts to recog-
nise these bad debt exposures
early.”

Revenue

The number of days revenue
in accounts receivable
increased to 74 days trom 66
the previous year, reflecting an

overall 31.9 per ceni or $1.8
million rise in net accounts
receivable.

DHHS said: “The increase

in accounts receivable reflects,
in part, the temporary shift of
staff away from collection func-
tions towards activities associ-
ated with design and imple-
mentation of the new
Meditech information system.

“Management expects that
this upswing in accounts receiv-
able will continue through the

first quarter of fiscal 2007
before a return to accounts
receivable days in the range of
65-70 days.” &

While total salaries and ben-
efits increased by 14.2 per cent

over the previous year in fiscal

2006, as a percentage of patient
service revenues they fell to
36.8 per cent-from 37.8 per

cent.
Staff

DHHS added that its staff
turnover rate was 1.47.per cent,
compared to the 12 per cent
average for US hospitals.

The company added that
direct government taxes and
fees increased 24.5 per cent to
$0.7 million, due to increased
business licence and work per-
mit fees. DHHS also reduced
its bank debt by 19.8 per cent
or $2.6 million in fiscal 2006.

Losses from discontinued
operations, especially the
Western Medical Plaza, fell by
$0.5 million or 32.8 per cent in
fiscal 2006. Without the drag
from these operations, net
income would have been
$5.163 million rather than
$4.112 million.

DHHS said the second
phase of its Healthcare Infor-
mation System (HIS) would be
installed between June and
November 2006, with the third
phase to come on-stream in
2007.

NEW YORK (Dow

in a quiet session, hit by a
round of month-end profit-tak-
ing.

Most-active August gold set-
tled $11.50 lower at $649 an
ounce Wednesday. The con-
tract reached $665.80 earlier
in the day, but lost steam.

Peter Grandich, analyst and
editor of the Grandich Letter,
said after a*“significant
momentum failure” on Tues-
day, the rally Wednesday
morning failed to attract fur-
ther attention.

““Gold couldn’t get above
important levels and local
traders and stale bulls sold,”
said Grandich, adding that if
gold breaks below the $635 to

$640 level it could head back to
the $600-an-ounce level.

But he added that the drop
back to $600 was not likely to
happen given the strong per-

July silver followed in gold’s
footsteps, settling 61.5 cents
lower at $12.455 an ounce.

July platinum ended the ses-
sion $44.60 lower at $1,246.80
an ounce while September pal-
ladium settled down $9.50 at

projected volume of inward

AP Business Writer



NEW YORK (AP) — Wall
Street closed out an uneasy May
with a solid advance Wednesday,
even after minutes from the last
Fedéral Reserve meeting indicat-
ed that inflation pressures raised
the chance ‘of another interest,
rate hike in June. The major
indexes ended the month broad-
ly lower.

, Investors have been searching
for clarity on the Fed’s next move
after the central bank said in ear-
ly May that higher rates could be
needed to battle soaring energy

s. The notes from the Fed’s
May, 10 meeting said its inflation

sectations have increased
somewhat and left only a slight
hint of a pause next month.

7 But Douglas Porter, a senior
economist for BMO Nesbitt
Burns, said there were no major
sugprises in the minutes given
recent signs of economic strength
and high oil prices. Stocks tum-
bled after the Fed report was
rel eased but regained their foot-
ing shortly after.

‘However, “the overall impres-
sion ‘the minutes leave is that
théte’s a bit more concern about
iMfation than in previous min-
wbes,” Porter said. “I think it
ecenes across loud and clear that
these concerns are starting to
weigh heavily on Fed members.”

7 After an upbeat start to May, a
muddled inflation picture left
stocks languishing during the last
lidlf of the month, and investors
still appeated to be nervous. On
Tuesday, a jump in oil prices,
Weakening consumer strength
and poor sales at Wal-Mart Stores
Irie: triggered a 184-point slide
for the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age.

At Wednesday’s close, the
Dow gained 73.88, or 0.67 per-
cent, to.11,168.31, after rising as
much as 89 points earlier.

Broader stock indicators were
also higher. The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index rose 10.25, or
:0:81 percent, to 1,270.09; the Nas-

daq composite index added 14.14,
or 0.65 percent, to 2,178.88, but
still showed a loss for the year.

Bonds slumped on the prospect
of rising interest rates, with the
yield on the 10-year Treasury
note climbing to 5.13 percent
from 5.08 percent late Tuesday.
The USS. dollar advanced against
the Japanese yen and was flat ver-
sus European currencies, gold
prices stood near $650 an ounce.

Lower crude futures helped
calm the market’s inflation jitters.
Reports that the United States is
ready to join talks with Iran over
its nuclear activities eased wor-
ries about a supply cutoff and sent
a barrel of light crude falling 74
cents to $71.29 on the New York
Mercantile Exchange.

The Fed’s minutes capped off a
highly volatile month for Wall
Street. Hope that the central bank
was nearly done lifting rates car-
ried stocks to six-year highs in
early May, but the Fed’s warning
that surging commodities prices
remain a problem for inflation
launched a two-week selloff that
dragged the Dow down “ percent
and put the Nasdaq in the red for
2006.

For the month of May, the
Dow lost 1.75 percent, the S&P
500 declined 3.09 vercent and the
Nasdaq plunged 6.19 percent.

Although the minutes signaled
no major changes in the Fed’s
stance, policymakers expressed
greater concerns about escalat-
ing prices and reinforced views
that the central bank will bump
the key short-term jending rate a

Cc



17th consecutive time tc 5 25 per-—

cent at its June 28-29 meeting,
Porter said.

He added that the Fed left the
door open for future increases.
“In a nutshell, these minutes have
raised serious doubts about
whether the Fed is through,”
Porter said.

The market faces more tests
later this week from data on labor
costs and wage growth, both of
which are seen as primary drivers
of inflation. But while those num-
bers may offer clues about the

SAT RST

likelihood of another rate hike,
the Fed’s next policy meeting is
not until the end of June, said
Ryan Larson, senior equity trad-
er for Voyageur Asset Manage-
ment.

“The key thing to take away
right now is that no one really
knows what the Fed’s policy will
be going forward,” he said.

Concerns that rising U.S. lend-

ing rates will cramp global growth’

has roiled overseas markets this

week. On Wednesday, Japan’s-
Nikkei stock average plunged’

2.47 percent, while stocks in Sin-
gapore slid 2.4 percent and the
Indian market tumbled 3.6 per-
cent.

European markets, however,

recouped some of their recent.

losses, with Britain’s FTSE 100
adding 1.29 percent, Germany’s
DAX index surging 1.25 percent
and Franve’s CAC-40 higher by

BUSINESS

Stocks preserve modest gain after Fed minutes - :

0.74 percent.

Costco Wholesale Corp. said
its third-quarter profit grew 12
percent but just missed analyst
estimates, although its sales came
in above targets. Costco slid 63
cents to $52.93.

ADC Telecommunications Inc.
is acquiring fellow equipment
maker Andrew Corp. in a $2 bil-
lion stock swap worth $12.76 per
share. ADC also posted a 32 per-
cent Slide in quarterly. earnings.
Andrew rose 34 cents to $10.12,
and ADC lost $4.46 to $17.92.

Advancing issues outpaced
decliners by almost 3 to 1 on the

New York Stock Exchange,

where preliminary consolidated
volume of 2.73 billion shares
topped the 2.2 billion shares that
changed hands Tuesday.

The Russell 2000 index, of

smaller companies gained 9.97,.

or 1.4 percent, to 721.01.

T SEEMS as if profes-
sional boxing could
haye a new dimension if the
Bahamas Boxing Commis-
sion grants Quincy “Thrill-A-
Minute’ Pratt his boxing
licence.

Pratt, 28, has been forced
to sit on the sidelines watch-
ing for the past three years
alier he was stripped of his
license because of his eye
injury.

During that time, Pratt has
been giving back to the sport
by forming his Eastside Box-
ing Club. He spent a lot of
time grooming some of the
nation’s amateur boxers.

But he has refused to let
go of his dream of fighting
evaln,

He has resurfaced, this
time with the hopes of fight-
ing Meacher ‘Pain’ Major for
his Bahamas lightweight title.
Major also holds the FEDE-
Caribe title, but Pratt said
the “paper title” doesn’t
interest him.

It could be intriguing, if
he’s afforded the opportuni-
ty io get back into the ring.

Before his departure, Pratt
fought Ray Minus Jr. three
times for the coveted
J;ahamas bantamweight and
lightweight titles, but he fell
short every time.

Minus Jr., who has since
retired, has launched his
(‘hampion Amateur Boxing



|






OPINIO

LN



Now Pratt says he wants to
“teach Meacher a lesson”
after an alleged clash during
one of his training sessions
for Minus Jr.

That is all the reason more
why this should be a fight
that could be good for the
public at this time.

The only problem is
whether or not, if his licence
is granted, Pratt can shake

SPORTS



over the past three years and
has developed a reputation
as a puncher with a “quick
draw,” as was evident in his
first round knockout over
Mexican Luis ‘Lichi’ Couch
in the FEDECaribe title fight
on May 19.

While many of the fans
who turned out to the Wynd-
ham Nassau Resort were a
little disappointed when the
fight ended so quickly, it just
showed how prepared and
focused Major was.

Whether or not Couch 9-2
was a quality fighter, it
should not have taken away
from the fact that: Major
wasted little time in getting
started.

Major, like Mackey, has
established himself as one of
the top local professional
boxers. He has yet to be test-
ed on the local scene and
maybe'a challenge from Pratt
will be just what is needed.

So it will probably be a
good opportunity if the
Bahamas Boxing Commis-
sion, now headed by Dr. Nor-
man Gay, can revisit Pratt’s
licence request ahd grant him
permission to fight. _

If you enjoyed the show-
down that he had with Minus
Jr., I’m sure boxing fans will
be eager to see how well he
can go up against Major.

Right now, the sport needs
someone like Pratt who isn’t
afraid to speak his mind.

ROGER FEDERER was
better than the weather.

On a third consecutive
damp, chilly day at the

ranked Federer endured two
rain delays while beating
Alejandro Falla 6-1, 6-4, 6-3
in the second round
Wednesday. i

match lasted only 1 hour, 26
minutes.

“I’m happy to get
through,” Federer said. “It’s
not easy to come on and off.
You always hope your game
is still there and it hasn’t left
you.”

Federer shanked fore-
hands on two match points
in the final game before clos-
ing out the victory to
improve to 40-3 this year. He
never lost his serve, won 55
of 68 service points and fin-
ished with 41 winners to 13
for Falla.

The final match of the
evening found Venus

her match at 9:48 p.m.
Williams, seeded 11th, lost
thé first four games but ral-

“It’s sunny, and five min-

“You just have to adjust and
be patient.”

Sharapova, recovering
from,an ankle injury. she
aggravated last week, moved
well on the center-court clay.

“It was a lot better than
my previous match,” she
said. “I didn’t feel like I was.
moving great still, being cau-
tious with the tape on, but
pain-wise it felt a lot better.”

By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter _

_ WITH the upcoming Gold-
en League series set to begin
in a just a few days, one of the
country's premiere quarter
milers is both physically and
mentally prepared to meet the
challenge. -

After a season of highlights,
which included setting a new
National indoor record in the
400m, Chris Brown is turning
his focus toward the European
circuit.

The first Golden League
meet, the Exxon Mobil Bislett
Games, begins Friday June 2
in Oslo, Norway.

Although this 400m field is
one of the strongest in recent
memory, Brown is confident
that he will be a top contender
throughout the season

"A lot of the guys have
been really consistent this
year, running sub 45's, but I
wasn’t really particularly
focused on their times," he
said. “Everybody that lines up
at a new meet on a new day
has a new time, so I'm really
not too concerned with the

times these guys ran, they still.

have to do it with me in the
race."
Brown said his goal is to

have a successful season Over- |

all, the Golden League jack-
pot would just become an
added bonus.

"Tjust have to focus on one
race at a time and continue to
do what I've been doing, tak-
ing it day by-day, hopefully
I'll be able to stay healthy and
positive.”

The strain of the season has
placed somewhat of a burden
on the veteran sprinter but he
said that he has recovered and
is ready to compete against
the world’s best.

"Thad to shut down my sea-
son and start all over from the
beginning, because J ran at
World Indoor Championships
and I came from there direct-
ly to the Commonwealth
games, so I went from one
major meet and went right
into another," he said, “After
that I shut it down for about 8
weeks and continued my
training all over again, so now
I’m back at square one and
ready for competition."

Last year in Helsinki, Fin-
land at the IAAF World
Championships, Brown ran a



Tel: 1 (242) 322 - 1595

personal best of 44.48 out of
lane eight and finished in
fourth place, just out of medal
contention.

He said he has improved a
great deal from this point in
his season a year ago.

This year I’ve been doing
great, I ran a personal best
indoors and I think I'm two
times ahead of the game
where I was last year so this
year I'm really looking to

race.”

come out with a vengeance
and take what's rightfully
mine,” he said. “This year a
lot of the guys have been con-
sistent with 44.80s so I don't
think much of the field is com-
ing back into the shape they
were in last year, because I
haven't seen those same type
of performances"

Despite the lack. of a major
meet this year, like last year’s
World Outdoor Champi-
onships or the Olympics,
Brown says he approaches the
season in the same manner
regardless of where or when |
he competes.

“Its going to be a signifi- -
cant year even though we |
don’t have a major champi-
onship this year,” he said.
“But I treat every year the
same, and do my best to go |
out there execute, leave my »
mark, break records and come
home a winner.”

in Nations
Cup final

@ SOCCER
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter








IT WILL be youth versus
experience when the Bahamas
Under-20 team plays Team Lati-
no in the final of the Nations
Cup tonight at the Thomas A.
Robinson Track and Field Stadi-
um.

The final will be eaves at
9pm, immediately following the
third place matchup between
Jamaica and Haiti that starts at
7pm.

’ According to Granton Inniss,
organiser of the tournament
being hosted by the United,
Football Club, the grand finale
should be a very exciting show-
down.

“T’m predicting that the
under-20 team will win because
they’ve been training very hard
and J think the coaching staff
that they have with Tony Singh
and Stephen Bellot, they stand a
very good chance of winning,”
said Inniss.

The Bahamas Under-20
knocked off Haiti 2-0 on Sunday -
to secure their berth into the
final, while Team Latino earned
their trip with a 1 0 win over
Jamaica.

The teams, according to
‘Tnniss, are basically made up of

players who are natives from.
those countries but are currently
residing here in the Bahamas.
Great Britain and the Rest of.
the World made up the remain- |
der of the field that participated.

Singh is confident that with
the squad that he and Bellot
have put together,.the Bahamas
will definitely prevail with the
championship title tonight:

“They look good. and we ©.
expect to‘come out with the vic-
tory,” he proclaimed. “It’s going
to be youth and speed against
experience. We just have to 1.
stick to the game plan, 2: play. :
simple football and 3. communi- ©
cate with each other on the
field.”

Of course, Singh will be rely-
ing on collegians Cameron Hep-
ple and Conner Sheehan; along
with Dwayne Forbés in the mid-
field; Shari Clarke in goal and
central defenders Demetri.
Darville and collegian-Darrel
Beneby to pull the team
through.

But Team Latino’s
player/manager Jose:Loa, a
Peruvian by birth, said his side
should not be taken lightly
because of the age factor.

“Tt will bea very interesting
game,” charged Loa, of his team .
that comprised mainly of Peru- .:
vians and Brazilians. “We're -
looking forward to playing
against the younger guys.

“We’re much older, but we
are supposed to be more skillful. «
' The younger guys are very o
and energetic.”

Loa will centre their game
around Holland native Maikel.

«, Wiesnekker. Reports have indi- :

~ cated that Wiesnekker is expect-

ed to sign a professional contract. |

; to play in the United States. ,,

_.. “We’re concerned about this
kid named Cameron. We’re
aiming him like he’s watching ; .
Maikel. He’s really good,” Loa
stated. “They have a few other’
players, but he’s the one we’re
talking about.”

The tournament, now in its
eighth year, was sponsored by
Calender & Co Law Firm; Super
Wash, Insurance Management,
Original Pattiés and Dr. Homer
Bloomfield. ‘

Last year’s champions, Rest
of the World, were eliminated

after losing 4-2 to Jamaica and

2-0 to Team Latino.
