The Bahamas continues to exhibit a level of tourism sector performance that has translated into positive economic growth for the country, Minister of Tourism and Aviation Dionisio D’Aguilar told Parliament last week.

There have been historic increases in overall foreign visitor arrivals –– stopover visitors and cruise visitors in 2018.


The Tourism and Aviation Minister reported that stopover visitors to The Bahamas grew by 16.7 per cent in 2018 over 2017. By comparison, global tourism visits increased by 6 per cent.

Delivering his contribution to the 2019/2020 Budget Debate in the House of Assembly June 5, Minister D’Aguilar said the growth in visitor arrivals (within the past two years) has been nothing short of exceptional.
