The Bahamas Trade Information Service Portal was officially launched on Thursday, April 6, 2017.
The objective of the portal is to diversify the economy through trade initiatives and to address the need for reliable, current and readily available trade information.
The portal is a public-private partnership with the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation and will serve as an online platform for buyers, sellers and businesses through which to communicate as well as conduct the operations of their business.
Charo R. Walker, C.E.O. of Walker Consulting, will serve as Trade Specialist/Content Manager for the Trade Portal.
Funds for the portal were derived from grant funding provided under the 10th tranche of the European Development Fund (10thEDF), a technical assistance component made available by the European Union through the CARIFORUM-European Union Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). The EPA, the first reciprocal trade agreement signed by The Bahamas in 2008, seeks to strengthen economic and trade relations between the signatories through the enhancement of trade and investment flows.
