Business Opportunities in the Caribbean Webinar Series
Organizer: U.S. Commercial Service
Contact: Delia Valdivia | Delia.Valdivia@trade.gov

The U.S. Department of Commerce is organizing a webinar series about the business opportunities in the Caribbean region. The following markets will be covered: The Bahamas, Barbados/Eastern Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and The Grenadines), Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.

These countries in the region 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.

This webinar series will provide valuable insights to new and experienced exporters who will gain knowledge of the export opportunities in this dynamic region. This eight-part webinar series is also a venue to prepare participating U.S. companies for a more successful experience during the upcoming U.S. Department of Commerce Trade Mission to the Caribbean Region being held May 31-June 5, 2020.  The Trade Mission will begin with a conference in Bridgetown, Barbados and include optional stops to the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Bahamas, Jamaica, Guyana, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. Your organization can choose to participate in each webinar individually for $35 or buy the entire series package for only $150.
