The Bahamas government demands commitment to a stronger country

NASSAU, Jan 20 (Prensa Latina) The Prime Minister of the Bahamas, Philip Davis, urged residents to engage in a stronger country as they prepare today to celebrate their 50th anniversary of independence next July.

Celebrate all that is exclusively indigenous this year, the Prime Minister also urged when unveiling the logo and slogan, “One Nation. Our legacy. Our Future” created in memory of the past.

“Let’s salute the contributions of the most outstanding Bahamas,” said Davis, calling for reflection on moments of challenge and crisis and remembering those who have been physically lost.

Let’s discuss and debate so we can affirm a shared vision of our future, he urged. Let’s sing, dance, make music, recite poetry and produce plays that show the whole world what it’s like to be from this area, he added.

“As we celebrate, let’s each leave a personal legacy of 2023,” he suggested, urging residents to join him in making two promises: one to participate in the celebrations in some way, and a promise to make the country stronger close.

Set a personal goal: perform, accomplish something, learn a new skill, or exalt yourself in some way so that you can have personal achievement at the end of the year, he said.

Learn a new profession or cultivate the land. Go for a walk every day or read a book every month, the prime minister suggested.

“A strong country is built on strong communities. What are you doing to build it?” he asked.

The Bahamas, with a population of almost 400,000, voted for independence from the United Kingdom on July 10, 1973.
