NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation’s (BCCEC) chairperson said last night that the organization which represents the private sector is moving “full steam ahead” in addressing private sector concerns, noting that Hurricane Dorian and the pandemic were not the only “pain points” for the business community.

Krystle Rutherford-Ferguson was re-elected to the chairmanship last Friday for another two-year term at the BCCEC’s annual general meeting.

She said: “I am grateful that the membership have reposed their confidence in me once again. The business community is faced with tremendous challenges exacerbated by the pandemic. Separate and apart from Dorian and COVID-19 there are other pain points that should be addressed. We have to address issues like the ease of doing business in this country, the cost of doing business, the cost of energy and tax reform. These are issues which are at the top of our agenda.”
