Bahamas Recovery & Sustainable Growth Project

Short, Medium and Long­-term Economic Growth Projections, inclusive of Policy Recommendations

The Ministry of Finance commissioned a study by the Government & Public Policy Institute of the University of The Bahamas to determine the level of growth the country needs to achieve to reverse economic and fiscal trends toward a more sustainable financial future. This study used a Dynamic Computable General Economic Model (DCGEM) to establish a baseline for the country's current economic and fiscal position using historical data from 1989 to 2020. The study considered the Ministry of Finance's medium- and long-term fiscal goals and policy prescriptions outlined in the 2021/2022 Budget Communication and the 2020 Fiscal Strategy Report.
