We are building on this wonderful history. This is our journey. We know where we came from in the Gaming Industry and we have a clear plan, vision and commitment to making Gaming an anchor in our economy and a major supply chain for the burgeoning Middle Class and Professional class of Bahamians,” says Dr. Daniel Johnson, the Executive Chairman of the Gaming Board for the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
Dr. Johnson is part of a team of “New Day Leaders” assembled and commissioned by Prime Minister Philip E. Davis, and Deputy Prime Minister I Chester Cooper and charged with ambitious assignments and high expectations of their competencies and delivery.
The term “New Day” is derived from the anthem of the new ruling political party, the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) which won a landslide snap general election in September 2021, after having lost office five years earlier, in 2017, where Mr. Davis served as Deputy Prime Minister to then Prime Minister Perry G. Christie.
It is a Government which is strong on Gaming and committed to a constant approach to ensure we are ahead of our competitors and that we are amongst the first to offer expeditiously new entries in interactive and mobile gaming while maintaining a well-regulated and highly respected regulatory agency,” says Dr. Johnson.
We are keenly aware of the acceleration and growth of the Bahamian Middle Class was engineered by Bahamians being employed at every level of this industry and my assignment is to further enrich and strengthen this trajectory. Our people appreciate the importance of the Gaming industry and my team at the Gaming Board of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas is deserving of a lengthy standing ovation for their due diligence, skill sets and commitment to this country having a well-regulated Gaming Industry which is respected by our international peers,” Dr. Johnson says
