On December 23, 2022, the U.S. International Trade Commission released U.S.-Haiti Trade: Impact of U.S. Preference Programs on Haiti’s Economy and Workers.
This report provides information and analysis on the Haitian economy, U.S. preference programs that benefit Haiti, and the impacts of these preference programs on the Haitian economy and workers. The United States is Haiti’s largest trading partner, with Haitian exports to the United States comprising more than 80 percent of Haiti’s total exports in recent years. The Haiti-eligible U.S. preference programs have played an important role in the trade relationship between the two countries and the development of Haiti’s apparel sector. They also help Haiti’s apparel sector continue to attract investment despite a difficult political, social, and environmental landscape.
