THE BUSINESS OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE
President of the Trinidad & Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) Tricia Coosal met with Cuban Ambassador Tania Diego Olite to discuss trade and other related matters as the TTMA continues to drive its export manufacturing strategy via meetings with key stakeholders such as the Cuban Embassy. Though Cuba brings some unique challenges as an export market, Coosal expressed confidence that Cuba is a market of great potential for the TTMA both for exporting goods and services as well as sourcing destination for inputs of raw material for manufacturing. Under the existing Cuba-CARICOM Trade and Economic Agreement framework CARICOM* countries and Cuba enjoy a tariff-free export regime on a number of goods and items.
*CARICOM countries are Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.
