2021 Trade Mission to the Caribbean Region

Mission Overview

The Caribbean region as a whole represents 30 markets, 50 million people who collectively imported $30 billion worth of U.S. goods and services in 2019. The Caribbean is a very diverse region with great potential for U.S. exports. Its close proximity to the U.S., and its regional integration, are some of the more relevant reasons why the Caribbean should be a key part of your company’s international strategy.

The 2021 Trade Americas program offers U.S. companies the opportunity to explore fourteen markets in the Caribbean region: Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Dominican Republic, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Suriname, The Bahamas, 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 issues, logistics, disaster resilience and recovery, and access to finance.

What You Can Expect

The combination of participation in the Trade Americas conference and business-to- business matchmaking appointments in one or two markets with a prescreened potential buyers, agents, distributors or joint-venture partners in Caribbean countries will provide participants with access to strategies for expanding their business across the region.
