The Government of the Bahamas officially launched its E-Services Business Registration Platform at Registrar General’s Department.

Registrar General Deirdre Clarke-Maycock described the initiative as a “collaborative” process between public and private sector agencies that allows The Bahamas to compete “effectively” with international jurisdictions and demonstrate its leadership in the region.

“Today’s launch enables and empowers young and ambitious Bahamian entrepreneurs in Inagua, Eleuthera, Abaco, Bimini or anywhere in the country, to simply log into our system using their smartphones, tablets or desktop computers to initiate and most importantly complete the process of incorporating their companies entirely on line,” said Ms. Clarke-Maycock.

Prime Minister Perry Christie headed the list of dignitaries attending the ceremony. Among other officials were the Hon. Allyson Maynard-Gibson, QC, Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, and the Hon. Hope Strachan, Minister of Financial Services. Representatives of various private sector partners including BTC and the Bahamas Financial Services Board were also present.
