Our mission is to serve the people of The Bahamas by providing strong and effective leadership that promotes prosperity, security, and a better quality of life for all citizens.
Cost of Living
Prime Minister Davis has taken significant strides to improve the cost of living for the Bahamian people, fostering a more equitable and prosperous society.
Among his accomplishments, he has increased the minimum wage, reduced VAT, and cut custom duties on food items.
Additionally, public service workers, including teachers and nurses, have seen salary increases, longer increments, and improved labor agreements.
Through these actions, and the introduction of aggressive price control measures, Prime Minister Davis continues to protect consumers and empower the working class.
In the face of the growing threat of climate change, the Davis Administration understands we must take action now.
The Bahamas has become a leading voice in the global fight against climate change, advocating for increased resources to be allocated for nations like ours to invest in climate resilience and prepare for more frequent, more destructive storms and rising sea levels.
Prime Minister Davis is taking decisive action to combat crime and ensure the safety of the Bahamian people.
His comprehensive strategy includes providing increased funding for new police officers, investing in state-of-the-art technology such as CCTV and gunshot detection systems, and allocating resources for saturation patrols.
Additionally, his administration is joining a lawsuit against US gun manufacturers, supporting the establishment of both an anti-gang and firearm unit, as well as a domestic unit within the Royal Bahamas Police Force.
By partnering with stakeholders at the community level and investing in the expansion of urban renewal and youth programs, Prime Minister Davis demonstrates his unwavering commitment to creating a secure and prosperous future for all Bahamians.
Enhancing the education system is an investment in the country’s future. The Government has been focused on increasing school funding, improving teacher training, refining curricula to align with the job market demands, and expanding access to education, particularly for disadvantaged young Bahamians.
Also, there has been a focus on improving learning post the COVID-19 pandemic. To address the related crises of absenteeism and learning loss, the administration repaired and reopened schools for the return of in-person learning and launched a task force to identify ways to re-engage students and oversee nationwide testing to assess individual learning needs.
The Find Every Child initiative brought thousands of students back to school, providing them with social and learning support. The National Smart Start Programme was started to provide workforce readiness skills to students left behind during the pandemic, and more teachers were hired to address staffing shortages.
Seeing a profound need for affordable housing, the Davis administration sprang into action, launching housing developments on New Providence, as well as the Family Islands.
To expand access to homeownership, the Government’s rent-to-own initiative was launched as a pilot programme. This was coupled with concessions for first-time homeowners, reflecting the need to prioritise affordability to keep costs within reach.
