India, Bahamas Create Closer Cruise Ties

The governments of India and the Bahamas are expected to enter a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore the possibilities of cooperation in cruise shipping. The partnership project was reportedly decided at a meeting between Frederick Mitchell, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Public Service of the Bahamas, and T.R. Baalu, the Union Shipping, Road Transport and Highways Minister for India at a meeting in New Delhi this week. The Indian government is in the midst of formulating a cruise shipping policy to make India an attractive cruise tourism destination with state-of-the-art infrastructure at several ports. The view is that the Bahamas, with its extensive experience in cruise operations could, in turn, provide operational advice and expertise. The Bahamas is also interested in seeing more Indian seafarers on Bahamian-flagged vessels.
