Relations between Turkey and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas

Relations between Turkey and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas have been limited due to geographical distance and different foreign policy priorities of both countries. The outreach policy of Turkey towards Latin America and the Caribbean region has gained momentum in recent years and increasing attention has been paid to the region. Opening of new Embassies in the region, development and technical cooperation projects carried out by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) and increased institutional relations with regional organizations have contributed to the development of our bilateral relations with the Commonwealth of the Bahamas as well.

The former Minister of Foreign Affairs H.E. Frederick Mitchell, attended the Turkey-CARICOM Consultation and Cooperation Mechanism Foreign Ministers Meeting held in Istanbul in July 17-21, 2014, and had a meeting with the former Foreign Minister H.E. Ahmet Davutoğlu.

The Embassy of Turkey in Havana is accredited to the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.

The trade volume between the two countries was approximately 86,1 million USD by the end of 2019.
