The United States is Haiti's chief trading partner, with a 40% share of Haiti's import market. Haiti's economy is unique in the Caribbean region, with a large population of 10 million people but a relatively small $7.9 billion GDP. Haiti's geographic proximity and historically strong links with the United States contribute to a strong export market.
Haiti imports more than 70% of market goods, and American businesses continue to do well in finding local buyers and distributors. Haiti has the lowest import tariffs in the Caribbean region. Best prospects sectors for US exports include: Apparel and Textile; Machinery and Transport; Automotive Sector and Parts; Telecommunications Services and Equipment; Electrical Power Systems; Tourism; and Building Materials/Equipment.
