Business Opportunities in the Caribbean Conference & Trade Mission

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 third 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 by geography, history, and culture. There is a huge demand for U. S.-made products in the region.

The US Commercial Service invites you to join us for the Trade Americas – Business Opportunities in the Caribbean Region Conference and Trade Mission this May 31-June 5, 2020, with the conference to be hosted in Bridgetown, Barbados.
