Correction: Bahamas resort story

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) _ In a March 18 story about a developer's plans for a resort on the Bahamian island of Bimini, The Associated Press gave the incorrect size of the proposed casino. It will measure 10,000 square feet, not 100,000 square feet.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Malaysian developer to operate Bahamas resort
Bahamas PM says Malaysian developer to operate luxury resort as part of master plan for island
A Malaysian conglomerate will take over operations at a luxury resort on Bimini and invest $100 million in air and sea transportation to the tiny island.
In a Monday speech to lawmakers, Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie announced that Genting Group will operate the Bimini Bay Resort and invest in a high-speed ship and aircraft to transport guests. Christie says Genting is also developing a master plan for the island.
Last year, the Malaysian developer announced that it planned to open a 10,000-square-foot casino on Bimini. It is expected to open in July.
Christie says Bimini's roughly 2,000 residents will soon see a dramatic improvement in the local economy.
Bimini is among the smallest islands of the Bahamas and his already home to a luxury-yacht, fishing and second-home market.
