To optimise the Caribbean Region’s export potential through facilitating innovation and the creation of world class brands capable of successfully competing globally.
To increase the competitiveness of the Caribbean countries by providing export development and investment promotion services through effective programme execution and strategic partnerships.
Caribbean Export is the only regional trade and investment promotion agency in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group. We were established in 1996 by an Inter-Governmental Agreement as the trade promotion Agency of the 15 Member States of CARIFORUM.
Then in July 2005 we assumed an investment promotion mandate after the 14th CARIFORUM Council of Ministers meeting. We have also established collaborative links with the French Caribbean Outermost Regions (FCORs), with the English and Dutch Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) and with Cuba.
