NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation (BCCEC) chief executive Jeffrey Beckles noted yesterday some businesses are adapting as the evolving COVID-19 pandemic continues to negatively the global and domestic economy.
Local spread of the virus has led to a rise in food and grocery delivery businesses as well as the local production of masks and sanitizers.
Beckles noted that there will be even more creative ideas emerging from this crisis.
“We are very pleased to see business stepping up to the plate,” Beckles said.
