Tourism: Dorian Loss Is 'Unprecedented'


The Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) yesterday said Hurricane Dorian had inflicted an "unprecedented economic loss" on Abaco, and the island will take time to recover.

The Association, in a brief statement to Tribune Business on behalf of its president, Carlton Russell, said it was "fully aware" that reconstruction following the category five storm will be protracted with the financial "sting" felt throughout the country during September.




Pantry on the Go is a collaborative effort between GlobalMedic, Head Knowles and The Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA). This initiative seeks to assist those impacted by Hurricane Dorian through the provision of staple food items in a hardy, reusable, easy to carry “bucket”.
