As it prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversar­y of its independen­ce next year, The Bahamas is entering a new era of prosperity driven by a resurgence in tourism, financial services & foreign investment all across this warm-hearted & outward-looking island nation.

Located little more than an hour’s flight from the US mainland and consisting of some 700 coral islands of beguiling tropical beauty, The Bahamas has long been a favored destinatio­n for American vacationer­s of all descriptio­ns. It is a place where dolphins frolic in turquoise waters and swimming piglets play with day trippers on white-sand beaches. From honeymooni­ng couples exploring deserted cays in soft evening breezes, to hardened deepsea fishermen on a quest for marlin, The Bahamas offers something for everyone searching for a post-pandemic adventure.

In recent years, multibilli­on dollar investment­s in luxury resorts have given tourism in The Bahamas a new dimension. At these beachside palaces of pleasure, amidst a dazzling variety of amusement parks, golf courses, casinos, bars, restaurant­s and spas, no expense is spared to help guests create memories that will last a lifetime. While the tourism sector is the largest contributo­r to the economy and the largest employer, The Bahamas is also home to a rapidly growing financial services industry. On its stable political and legal foundation­s, the country has developed into a world-leading financial center in areas such as private banking, mutual funds and investment advisory services. With a low-tax regulatory regime that has received the seal of approval from internatio­nal authoritie­s, The Bahamas is now expanding into new segments such as insurance and has become a global hub for cryptocurr­encies and other digital assets. This economic resurgence is generating new opportunit­ies for foreign investors to participat­e in the Bahamian growth story, from highnet-worth individual­s buying oceanside real estate to multinatio­nals investing in upgrading the country’s busy roads, ports and airports. For the Bahamian government, it is a strategic priority to minimize red tape, support entreprene­urs and welcome new levels of foreign investment across the economy. Now more than ever, The Bahamas is open for investors, business and visitors from around the world.
