3GIMBALS Data Analysts Show Increasing Chinese Investment in the Bahamas
In 2021, the Chinese government continued to gain favor with the Bahamian government by providing COVID-19 medical supplies, distribution of greenhouses, and investment in the economy and new technology.
Investment is gaining momentum, but has been active since the mid-1990s, when China made significant investments in the Bahamas. This provided economic and political influence through ports, land development, tourism, and disaster relief.
Chinese businesses – to include markets, restaurants, and services – were identified via open-source research on the island of Grand Bahama in the Freeport area and on the island of New Providence in the Nassau area.
Our analysis of open-source data also creates a picture of how the governments interact through business and development.
