Grand Bahama’s strategic location to North American Markets, as well as its large labour pool of skilled english-speaking workforce and world-class technology infrastructure make it an ideal investment location for business outsourcing services and other ICT based industries.
Over the past 2-3 years, Grand Bahama’s ICT sector has grown exponentially; having attracted some of the most reputable ICT companies in the region; due largely in part to The Grand Bahama Port Authority and Invest Grand Bahama’s extensive Marketing & Promotion of the island as a competitive ICT hub throughout the world.
