The July edition of Caribbean Monitor reported that The Bahamas received one of the highest scores in the Caribbean in Business Monitor International‘s (BMI) proprietary Short Term Political Risk Ratings, touting the Government’s *“stable footing and adherence to constitutional norms”.*

It reported The Bahamas’ score at 72.5, above the regional average of 64.3, and well above the global average of 64.4. *(Scores are measured on a scale of 1 to 100. A low score indicates a high short term political risk and a high score indicates low short term political risk.)*

The report highlighted the social and political stability of The Bahamas and the continuity of policy embraced by successive governments. It found that *“virtually all major actors in the policy are committed to continued constitutional transference*”.
