Relations between the Bahamas and Germany are friendly and untroubled, but not very intensive. The volume of trade is marginal and the balance unequal. Exports to Germany, predominantly bauxite and drinks, amounted to a mere 1.36 million euros in 2018 (2017: 3.94 million euros). Imports from Germany, primarily machinery, totalled 43.45 million euros in 2018 (2017: 31.66 million euros). The two countries work closely together in the United Nations.
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.
