The president explainined what their functions are.

Rolle says he believes some don’t understand what the authority’s responsibilities are which is laid out in the Hawksbill Creek Agreement.

He says this is a good time for people to take advantage of opportunities in Grand Bahama.

And as for the GBPA’s relationship with government, he says it’s a positive one.
