Starting 60 miles off the coast of South
Florida and stretching as far south as
Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic,
The Bahamas is a coral archipelago of
700 islands, 29 of which are inhabited,
and over 2,000 rocks and cays.
With a population of some 284,000
people, most of who live on the major
islands (New Providence, Grand Bahama,
Eleuthera, Abaco, Exuma, Long Island,
Inagua, Cat Island, Bimini and Andros),
and with an adult literacy rate of 95%,
The Bahamas has a capable and
adaptable work force.
The Bahamas, an English speaking
country which gained its independence
from Britain on July 10, 1973, is one of
the most politically stable countries; a
parliamentary democracy has operated
without interruption for 275 years.
