Leader of the Democratic National Alliance (DNA), Arinthia Komolafe, painted a gloomy picture of the economy of Grand Bahama and the rest of the country while bringing remarks as the key guest of the Rotary Club of Freeport recently. She pointed out though that the increasing ease to do business is positive. She likened the general situation though to a “perfect storm.”

Komolafe is no stranger to Grand Bahama. She informed of having visited the island several times over the past six months and that much of her youth was spent on the island.Komolafe admitted that she was first unsure of what to speak to Grand Bahamians about, being a resident of New Providence, but decided to address challenges of the Grand Bahamian economy which affects the country as a whole.
