Country Report Bahamas 3rd Quarter

  • Published: July 2014
  • Region: Bahamas
  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

Despite some policy U-turns, continuing public support and an overwhelming majority in the legislature will support the government's ability to advance its policy agenda in 2014-15.

A weak fiscal position and rising debt burden, low demand for tourism, a soft jobs market and crime represent the main policy challenges.

The fiscal deficit is estimated to have remained wide in 2013/14, at 5.4% of GDP. The Economist Intelligence Unit assumes that there will be some fiscal consolidation in the medium term.
