National Trade Policy Consultation

Tapping into The Bahamas’ full potential for trade will be a key driver of economic growth and diversification. Our ability to create a suitable policy framework will be critical to ensuring that we are able to make significant progress in facilitating greater local participation in regional and international trade.

The National Trade Policy provides, based on a thorough background analysis of The Bahamas’ trade performance and its underlying challenges, a coherent set of short and longer-term policy actions that are also aligned with the country’s broader development strategies.

Through public consultation, we are garnering feedback from major stakeholders, as well as the general public, to strengthen the policy as we prepare to transition from the policy development phase to the execution phase.

Please join us as we discuss the future of trade in The Bahamas.
