Petrol retailers stop diesel sale

LOCAL petroleum retailers stopped the sale of diesel at all their locations yesterday.

The move forced the government to agree to meet with them on Monday with a view to address their diesel mark-up which, it is claimed, has not been increased for more than 30 years.

At a price of $4.54, retailers claim they are only making 19 cents on a gallon of diesel sold. This margin, they said, is unsustainable for their stations, with many now not wanting to even sell the product.

One retailer, who spoke to The Tribune yesterday on condition of anonymity, said he is finding it increasingly difficult to stay in business.

"Right now diesel is $4.54 at our station (Texaco). On that we make 19 cents. I ...

Planned Sale of BEC

The National
Development Party puts the government on notice that the Bahamian people
will not abide the sale of BEC to Emera or any other foreign entity
under any circumstance.

Recently the government, through the
junior minister of state for environment and the chairman of BEC, has
been making suggestions that BEC is on the market and that two
non-Bahamian companies are in the running for the acquisition. The
government is warned that that day will never come...

New car sales at 'acceptable level' if back to 75-80 of pre-bust data

By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamian new auto market would have recovered to an "acceptable level" if it returns to 75-80 per cent of pre-recession sales levels, the Bahamas Motor Dealers Association's (BMDA) president said yesterday, as current sales levels - although 50-60 per cent behind pre-recession levels - continue to show improvement.

Andrew Barr, who is also Friendly Ford's sales manager, said the 17.76 per cent year-over-year new auto sales increase reported by BMDA members for October 2010, coupled with the 1.84 per cent improvement for the first 10 months of the year compared to 2009, indicated the economic climate facing the industry was "bec ...

As Florida farmers continued to count the cost of the lowest temperatures in the state since the 1960s, wholesalers and retailers yesterday warned Bahamian consumers to be prepared for potential spikes in produce prices in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, major local wholesaler, Bahamas Food Services, suggested any destruction of crops in Florida may signal a silver lining for Bahamian agricultural producers in the form of increased revenue opportunities. Mike Leslie, of Sun International Produce, Florida, Supervalue's primary produce wholesaler, told Tribune Business the impact of the record breaking temperature lows this week, while not f ...

Major Freeport job losses if 40 sales drop persists

By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

The Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce president has confirmed to Tribune Business that many Freeport-based retailers and businesses have suffered a 40 per cent sales decline due to the ongoing 'Bonded letter' controversy, with February the 'make or break' month for "significant" reductions in staffing levels.

K P Turnquest told this newspaper that many Freeport companies, especially the larger wholesalers and retailers, would use this month as a "year-over-year benchmark" to determine whether employee lay-offs would be necessary to enable them to "survive", given the drastic top-line decline. All companies concer ...

Bahamians being offered better deal

WE ARE baffled by Opposition Leader Perry Christie's harping on the "secrecy" surrounding government's memorandum of understanding with Cable & Wireless (LIME). Surprised because on the desk in front of us is a file of the Christie government's secret negotiations with Bluewater that were then too sensitive to be shared with the public and of which no one knew the details until the Ingraham government came to office and opened the books. The union, by its own and Mr Christie's admission, was a part of the negotiations and approved the sale.

A week before the election, which resulted in the Christie government's removal from office, it was discovered that the privati ...

Senator makes case for BTC sale

Many questions remain regarding the government's planned sale of a majority stake in the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC), but Senator Tanya Wright says businesses should be clear on the need to open the industry for competition.
Wright, who is president of World Cooperation Group, wrote Guardian Business as a member of the private sector and said that businesses and entrepreneurs had been locked out of the lucrative industry for too long, and the sooner the state-owned monopoly is privatized, the better.
"While the jury is still out on the eventual majority owner of BTC, advocates of the business community should be steadfast in support of the liberalization of telecommunications ...

'Political operatives' and the 'criminally-minded'

POLICE Staff Association president Dwight Smith during an interview with the press after the February 23 demonstration on Bay Street urged politicians to stop politicising issues.

He was defending his Force from a politician's criticism of the worth of police reports, which were used in another case to decide the suitability of a person for a high office. Mr Smith was also smarting under the criticism of how "over prepared" police were when they arrived on Bay Street for the BTC demonstration. It would have been irresponsible - after a union leader had declared that a "small Egypt" was needed on Bay Street to protest the sale of BTC - if police had not come fully prepared -- wi ...

BTC vote could trigger election

If Free National Movement (FNM) MPs vote against the privatization of the Bahamas Telecomunications Company (BTC), an election would be called to allow Bahamians to decide on the matter, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said yesterday.

The sale of a 51 percent stake of BTC to Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) requires parliamentary approval.
Debate on the issue is expected to begin in the House of Assembly on Monday. At the end of debate parliamentarians will vote on whether the sale should go forward.
Over the past several months the pending sale has created much controve ...

PLP Responds to FNM Statement on the Sale of 51 of BTC

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed is a Press Statement by the

Progressive
Liberal Party.

The Government's statement on
the proposed sale of the majority of the shares of BTC (51%) is yet
another attempt to mislead and misdirect the public's attention from the
central issues concerning this matter of national importance.

Those issues are that majority ownership of an important national asset
is to be sold to a regional telecommunications company (Cable and
Wireless) which has an established reputation for aggravating its
workforce; that the net price, taking into account the assumption of
over $60 million in BTC 's pension liabilities is considerably less than
the $210 million being touted; and above all, the Unions and the
majority of the people in the country are against the sale of BTC to
CWC...
