Bahamas GDP Annual Growth Rate Notes

The Bahamas is one of the richest countries in the Caribbean. The most important sector of the economy is tourism, which employs around half of the labour force and accounts for 60 percent of GDP. Due to low taxes, The Bahamas is a major off-shore centre and financial services account for 12 percent of GDP. The shipping industry, one of the largest in the world, is also a valuable source of income. The Bahamas is heavily dependent on the United States, the country’s largest trading partner. The main obstacles to further development are high trade tariffs and overdependence on tourism. In the last few years, the government has also been retooling the financial sector, in order to diminish the impact of tax regulation in other countries.
