With Hong Kong down, China and Singapore are up next on the Bahamas Financial Service Board's (BFSB) promotional mission to the Far East, with a prominent presenter from The Bahamas reporting from afar that "all went well".
John Lawrence, director of Windemere Yacht Services, one of the corporate sponsors for the event, sent the update to Guardian Business yesterday. Under the "Bahamas Landfall: Destination Hong Kong" banner, mission delegates hosted breakfast and lunch presentations in the city - one
of the world's leading financial centers.
The breakfast and lunch sessions were aimed at gathering key intermediaries and business leaders for an introduction to financial services in The Bahamas.
Lawrence, who moderated the lunch panel discussion, informed participants about the increasing economic ties between the countries.
"The Bahamas although relatively small in population and seemingly far away has a very significant role in global commerce and also has a significant part to play in the Asian market", Lawrence said. "In particular, in Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China."
Lawrence listed the $1 billion-plus investment in Freeport, Grand Bahama by Hutchison Whampoa Limited, giving it one of the deepest container ports in the region and --along with its proximity to the Panama Canal -- setting it up as a major transshipment hub.
The $2.6 billion investment by China Ex-Im Bank in the development of the Baha Mar resort was also highlighted.
The quality of professionals in a financial jurisdiction has been an increasingly important factor for potential investors and clients. Lawrence told participants that The Bahamas enjoyed a high caliber of financial professions. To illustrate the point, he mentioned that of the 16,000 worldwide professional member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioner (STEP), The Bahamas had the seventh largest branch in the world.
Lawrence introduced some of the strengths of The Bahamas as a jurisdiction for financial services.
He contrasted the political independence of this jurisdiction to competitors including Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, and the Cayman Islands, which are dependent territories of the United Kingdom. As an independent, sovereign nation, The Bahamas enjoyed more flexibility to "pursue its commercial objectives with its international business partners", according to Lawrence.
The Common Law system used in The Bahamas, a long history of peaceful existence and a stable political environment, were also highlighted.
Scheduled for Oct 26 and 27, the BFSB heads next to Shanghai for the China Offshore Summit where it will be an exhibitor and host a dinner for invited guests.
