Bahamas Chamber of Commerce to Lead Trade Missions in 2018

January 30, 2018


Trade can help to grow and diversify the Bahamian economy

The Bahamas is moving toward greater participation in the world trading system at both the regional and international levels. In fact, the nation is positioned to become a full World Trade Organisation (WTO) member by 2019 and since 2008 has been a signatory to the EU-CARIFORUM Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). Membership in both trading regimes, if maximized, has the ability to grow and diversify the Bahamian economy.


It is against this backdrop that the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employer’s Confederation (BCCEC) will spearhead a series of international Trade Missions in 2018 in order to seek opportunities in export (both goods and services) and investment for the private sector. In many instances, the missions are being organized in conjunction with the Bahamian public sector.

Trade missions will offer participants unique opportunities and benefits

The BCCEC CEO or senior Chamber representatives will lead the missions that will offer unique opportunities and benefits to participants. These benefits include:

  • access to economic and government decision-makers

  • on-the-ground support from the BCCEC’s network and partners

  • networking opportunities with the local business community

  • business-to-business meetings with potential partners

  • opportunities to create export partnerships

The 2018 schedule proposes visits to eleven countries


The 2018 schedule proposes visits to eleven countries throughout the North American, Asian, African, and Caribbean and Latin American regions. The missions will generally take place within a one week period and participants will learn about doing business in the host market and gain exposure to the social and business cultures.

The structured program may include:

  • business briefings

  • market and sector presentations/discussions

  • networking events

  • business-to-business meetings

  • face-time with government officials

  • site visits (when possible)

  • participation in a trade showcase/expo (when possible)

Register your business for an upcoming trade mission

If you are part of the Bahamian business community, contribute to The Bahamas’ economic growth, have a demonstrated capacity for internationalization, and have good potential to add value to the Bahamian economy, you can participate in a Trade Mission.

Generally, interested companies must register for a specific trade mission and will be screened for suitability based on the objectives of the mission.
