Product Overview   

The Caribbean Basin contains some of the world’s fastest growing apparel producing countries. These countries have very low wage costs, and benefit from being geographically close to the important US market. Furthermore, suppliers of clothing assembled in the Caribbean from US fabric are guaranteed free access to the USA, without quotas.

The report provides a detailed analysis of the US apparel market and US legislation, and examines the strengths and weaknesses of US policy with regard to US imports. It looks at prospects for Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica, as well as those for Asian companies which are basing themselves in the Caribbean region in order to reach US markets.
