China Offshore Summit 2014, Shanghai, China
The Bahamas, A Sound Financial Centre for Prudent Chinese Investors
October 15, 2014
My name is Ryan Pinder, I am the Minister for Financial Services and Trade for the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and I welcome you to this China Offshore Summit. The Government of the Bahamas, and particularly the Ministry of Financial Services are pleased to be the Platinum sponsor for this event. Today I have the pleasure to speak to you about The Bahamas, what differentiates The Bahamas as a financial and business center from other jurisdictions, and why these fundamental characteristics of the Bahamas make the jurisdiction a sound financial center for prudent Chinese investors. I also have the privilege to speak to you tomorrow in which I will provide you more detail on specific products, structuring and planning opportunities that The Bahamas can offer you and your clients.
