Caribbean Basin: Exporter Guide
The Caribbean’s rebound from the economic downturn induced by the COVID-19 pandemic has been slow. Anxious for better times, the region is looking ahead at 2023 and hoping for improved tourist arrivals that will spark a return to more robust economic growth. Improved Caribbean economic activity also means greater opportunities for U.S. agricultural suppliers. During the first 10 months of 2022, U.S. agricultural exports of consumer-oriented products to the region reached $1.25 billion, a 35 percent gain when compared to the same period in 2021.
