Caribbean Trade Mission
Caribbean Region Trade Mission and Business Conference - October 24-29, 2021
The 2021 Trade Americas, Caribbean Region Trade Mission and Business Conference program offers U.S. companies the opportunity to explore fourteen markets in the Caribbean Region: The Bahamas, Barbados and Eastern Caribbean, Dominican Republic, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
Hosted in Bridgetown, Barbados, the Trade Americas – Business Opportunities in the Caribbean Region Conference will focus on region-specific sessions, market entry strategies, export compliance, legal, logistics, disaster resilience and recovery and trade financing resources. You will also be able to have prearranged one-on-one consultations with U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service (US & FCS) commercial officers and/or Department of State economic/commercial officers with expertise in commercial markets throughout the region.
The combination of the Trade Americas conference and customized business-to-business matchmaking appointments in ONE or TWO countries with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors, or joint venture partners will provide participants with strategies for expanding their business across the region.
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.
