This statement would make even US Politicians proud

Lol
Since the port is in the middle of nowhere my guess is that it will be a base for Chinese fishing boats

They ( some bahamians) get it...."I just can't wait until the U.S. media and U.S. public wake up to the fact that their government (the Obama/Hillary/Kerry government) has permitted Red China to set up shop (including deep water stealth submarine operations) in the Bahamas only a few short miles away from Florida and the entire Eastern Seaboard. I imagine most Americans will want all senior officials of the U.S. embassy in the Bahamas, the Dept of State in the U.S. and the NSA over the past decade or so to be drawn and quartered for high treason because of their serious failure to gather and act on intelligence information in order to protect the national security interests of the U.S.".

When driving the economic development of North Abaco Island, this project also played a demonstrating role in better developing other islands of Bahamas. He expressed his gratitude to CHEC for creating jobs for local people and conveying advanced construction technology, and the workers of Bahamas could directly apply new silks they learned to this project. The implementation of this project strengthened the cultural communication between China and Bahamas, and promoted the friendship between the two parties.
