The IDB Country Strategy with The Bahamas (2018-2022) aims to support the country in achieving a sustainable path of higher growth in a fiscally prudent manner.
The Country Strategy priority areas include:
(1) Enhancing public sector effectiveness;
(2) Supporting resilient infrastructure for growth; and
(3) Fostering an enabling environment for private sector competitiveness.
Cross cutting considerations of data, gender, and climate resilience and disaster risk management will also be factored into all strategic partnership efforts. Operations in these areas aim to support The Bahamas’ efforts to improve total factor productivity by encouraging innovation and efficiency, which will increase output levels and spur private-sector-led growth.
