February 08, 2017

St. Kitts and Nevis and other CARICOM member states will soon be able to export a number of items into the Cuban market free of duty.

This comes after the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Cuba reached agreement for the expansion of preferential access to each other’s markets.

Agreement to this end came at the Tenth Meeting of the Joint Commission Established under the Trade and Economic Cooperation Agreement between CARICOM and Cuba convened at the CARICOM Secretariat, Georgetown, Guyana 30th and 31st January 2017.

Some of the items include beer, fish and other agricultural products, and manufactured goods.

CARICOM Member States have also agreed to grant duty-free access to Cuban goods, including pharmaceuticals. Exploratory discussions on trade in services were also held.

The two sides agreed to continue to exchange information on trade in services, and to make efforts to advance cooperation in this area, particularly in tourism.
