 Compelling Reasons to Do Business in The Caribbean

·       Close Proximity - The Caribbean region is a natural commercial partner of the United States, tied closely together by geography, history, and culture.

·       Third Largest Market in Latin America for U.S. Exports – The Caribbean region represented in this Trade Mission has a market of 20 million people who collectively imported over $30 billion of U.S. goods and services in 2022. As a result, the U.S. export-dependent region is the 3rd largest export market for U.S. manufactured goods in Latin America, behind only Mexico and Brazil.

·       English Speaking – While the Dominican Republic primarily speaks Spanish, the other countries represented in the region speak English officially and/or widely. 

·       Free Trade Agreement - In 2004, the United States and the Dominican Republic (DR) signed a Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR). The agreement went into effect in 2007, ensuring that most U.S. manufactured goods enter the DR duty free. In addition to tariff reduction, CAFTA-DR also liberalizes the services sectors, and strengthens protections for U.S. investments, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets in the DR.

·       Regional Integration - CARICOM, established in 1973 and headquartered in Georgetown, Guyana is an organization of 15 nations and dependencies throughout the Caribbean. Its main priorities are economic integration, foreign policy coordination, human and social development, and security.
