OPM launches platform for COVID-19 response suggestions

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Office of the Prime Minister has launched a suggestions platform on its website, opm.gov.bs.

The platform will serve as a central point for the collection of non-health related suggestions related to the national response to COVID-19.

Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis announced last week the platform would be established to allow all Bahamians and residents an opportunity to participate in the rebuilding of The Bahamas in a post COVID-19 environment.

“We are looking for ideas and suggestions that will challenge us to take a new look at our old ways and reinvent a brand-new economy and country for all,” said Minnis.

“I wish to advise you that we are consulting locally and internationally to help guide our social and economic response once the immediate health problems are arrested.”

Bahamian academics, historians and researchers are also being invited to provide a more comprehensive perspective on the best way forward.

To send in a suggestion visit www.opm.gov.bs, select the “Suggestion” tab on the Homepage, fill in the form and click on the submit button.

“While all submissions may not be acknowledged in writing, please be assured that they will be read and where necessary, forwarded to the relevant parties for consideration. We look forward to hearing from you” read a statement.


I hope I am not wasting my time, as this was always a battle in the past but, I will be gullible seeing the circumstances. In many countries this has proven to be successful in lowering the Unemployment rate / record, I suggest that after the Covid 19 pandemic, The Prime Minister and Government of the Bahamas temporarily suspend immigration into the Bahamas as it pertains to work permits due; to the uncertainty of the future. Suspending all immigrant work permits and allowing Bahamians to be employed in such positions as Hotel General Manager, Assistant GMs, Accountants, Directors , Restaurant Managers e.t.c, Bahamians especially in the hospitality industry are superior in service and leaders in this field.

Let’s show that we are for the people of this great country and Bahamians are First in the Bahamas, and We stand by our People and our Country’s Product.
