Cultural Industries & Development

The creative imagination and intellect of the Bahamian people is a major potential for national development, economic growth, employment generation and personal fulfillment. The cultural industries will be developed to become at least 10% of the Gross Domestic Product, within the next 10 years.
The cultural/creative industries provide the best means for inclusive and sustainable national development. Investment, through private/public partnerships, in Bahamian innovation, cultural goods and services, intellectual property and cultural heritage sites will deepen Bahamian identity, improve the tourism product and establish The Bahamas as a premiere cultural destination.
