Minister Philip Davis, Deputy Prime Chester Cooper, other cabinet ministers along
with dozens of party supporters gathered at Mount Tabor Church in Pinewood
Gardens for a service of thanksgiving and fellowship.
Commemorating the occasion PLP Secretary General, Barbara Cartwright
highlighted some of the party’s wins since coming into office. She said, “Some of
the government’s successful accomplishments are reducing VAT, increasing

Prime Minister Davis not only reflected on his administration’s wins but also
highlighted what he hopes the road ahead will look like, saying, “When it comes to

take steps toward a fairer and more prosperous society for all Bahamians.”
Prime Minister Davis ended by assuring that the way forward is promising and
although it may have its challenges, the PLP government will never stop fighting
on behalf of the Bahamian people.
