Find your new export market the easy way
The Ministry of Financial Services and The Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation (BCCEC) collaborated to establish the Bahamas Trade Information Portal. It is an online one stop shop to provide easy access to essential international business & trade data and to foster insight on foreign market opportunities for Bahamian entrepreneurs. It was launched early 2017 and is maintained by both parties as part of a Public Private Partnership. The portal contributes to the overall government’s objectives to diversify the economy, in line with the National Development Plan. Also it supports the ease of doing business for Bahamian businessmen.
