Trade Americas Caribbean Mission Banner


The Caribbean region as a whole represents a market of about 27 million people who collectively imported over $21 billion of U.S. goods in 2018. As a result, the region is the 3rd largest export market for U.S. manufactured goods in Latin America behind only Mexico and Brazil. The Caribbean region is a natural commercial partner of the United States, tied closely together by geography, history, and culture. There is a huge demand for U.S.-made products in the region.
