Using an Agent or Distributor

Using an Agent or Distributor: The Bahamian government recommends that foreign exporters to The Bahamas use an agent or distributor to distribute their products. A listing of relevant agent and distributors is available from the Economic-Commercial section of the U.S. Embassy. The Embassy also provides ADS Partnership (Agent/Distributor Search) services to assist American companies in locating appropriate agents/distributors for their products.
