According to a report from the United Nations, FDI into The Bahamas dipped slightly last year, from $943m in 2016, but remains resilient and well above its lacklustre performance in 2015 when the country received just $408m in inflows.
The Bahamas’ performance is second only to the Dominican Republic, which claimed more than half of the Caribbean’s $5.8bn total. Most FDI to the region came from the United States and the European Union.
The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean predicts stability in the short-term and called on governments to incentivise quality FDI that is compatible with sustainable development.
