The Commonwealth of The Bahamas offers many benefits for doing business and is a respected international center for global investment. It is a member of many of the world’s most important organizations—the United Nations, World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, to name a few. Perfectly positioned a mere 60 miles off the coast of the southeastern United States, The Bahamas provides easy access to North and South America, as well as Bermuda, Turks & Caicos and the Caribbean. A best-of-both-worlds scenario, you can be stateside one minute and on island the next. And, with English being the official language and the time zone being Eastern Standard Time (EST), connecting with major business hubs in the same zone, such as New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Montreal and Toronto, makes doing business that much easier.
An independent Atlantic-island nation, The Bahamas is a sound country in which to invest. Self-governing for more than 40 years, its government is mature and stable, as are its economic, monetary and fiscal policies. Committed to supporting domestic and international investment, it has a business-friendly legal and regulatory framework. Since the introduction of the National Investment Policy in 1994 to support a competitive foreign investment climate, the government has played the dual role of facilitator and regulator of economic development, bringing an added layer of protection.
Moreover, The Bahamas has a modern business infrastructure and state-of-the-art telecommunications. From leading financial services, information technology and energy, to tourism, maritime services, light manufacturing and agribusiness, The Bahamas presents great diversity for investment.
Its tax-neutral status, stable currency and flexible immigration policy enhance its desirability, alongside the country’s significant public investments, including the development of the Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. The country’s main international gateway, with daily chartered and scheduled flights to the U.S., Canada, Europe and Latin America, getting to where you need to be in a moment’s notice is possible.
A smart investment for business purposes, The Bahamas is also a smart personal investment. Here, you can grow your success and live the lifestyle of your dreams.
