Relations between the Bahamas and Germany are friendly and untroubled but not very intensive.

Exports to Germany amounted to 4.1 million euros in 2016 (2015: 4.6 million euros), key products being food and drink. Imports from Germany, primarily machinery, totalled 45.6 million euros in 2016 (2015: 40.83 million euros). There is close cooperation within the United Nations, the Bahamas having frequently supported Germany in votes on candidatures and other resolutions.

A Tax Information Exchange Agreement between the two countries entered into force on 12 December 2011. Germany has terminated bilateral development cooperation with the Bahamas on account of the country’s high per capita income. However, the Bahamas is involved in regional German development cooperation projects with CARICOM.
