Bahamian creative industries – a sector for expansion

The creative industry makes up a very small percentage of exports in The Bahamas. However, The Bahamas government is working to bolster this sector as part of the country’s strategy to diversify its economy. The Government of The Bahamas through the Ministry of Tourism hosts cultural events and festivals in order to expand the reach of the creative industries by linking it with tourism.
