PREFACE

This is the fourth edition of CARICOM’s Trade: A Quick Reference to Some Summary Data which covers
data for the period 1996 to 2001. This publication presents some of the basic summary trade data to which
users frequently refer and focuses primarily on CARICOM’s trade with principal trading partners, as well as on
Intra-CARICOM trade. Further this report could be used as a valuable source of trade information for
manipulation and analysis.

The report is divided into two parts. PART I presents data on CARICOM’s Total Trade with all principal trading
partners and in this regard attempts to give a summarized picture of CARICOM’s overall merchandise trade.
PART II of the report, which comprises Sections 1-12, presents data on CARICOM’s Trade with principal
trading partners and Intra-CARICOM Trade, each section being devoted to trade with a particular trading
partner. CARICOM’s trade with individual countries – the United States, The United Kingdom, Canada,
Venezuela and Japan are also represented in this report.

The data presented in this report were extracted from those submitted to the CARICOM Secretariat by
Member States Statistics Department. It should be noted that data were not always available for all Member
States for specific years of the period 1996 to 2001. The incomplete nature of the data therefore poses
limitations to analysis and interpretation. Efforts are being made by the CARICOM Secretariat to build capacity
in those Member States experiencing difficulty with the timely compilation and dissemination of Trade data.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The CARICOM Secretariat takes this opportunity to express its sincere thanks to the National Statistical
Offices in Member States for supplying the Merchandise trade data used in the compilation of this report. We
also wish to recognize the contributions of the various Customs Departments at the regional level.

The Secretariat wishes to thank the staff of its Statistics Sub-Programme for their dedicated efforts in
compiling the data and in preparing and disseminating this report.

Percentage Contribution of CARICOM’s Intra-Regional and Extra-Regional trade to Total


Trade

CARICOM as a trading bloc, imported on average 88.9% of its total imports from extra-regional
sources while it exported on average 81.6% of its total exports to extra-regional markets. CARICOM’s
intra-regional market has grown (despite fewer Member States reporting over the period). The
percentage contribution of CARICOM’s intra-regional imports to its total imports increased from
10.8% in 1996 to 11.1% in 2001 while the percentage contribution of CARICOM’s intra-regional
exports increased from 15.8% in 1996 to 19.6% in 2001(Tables 1.4 & 1.6).

CARICOM’s Top items traded

Table 1.14 showed that CARICOM’s top 20 commodities imported in 2001 accounted for 48.7% of its
total imports from all sources. The four major commodities imported in this year were:
• Petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude,
• Petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (other than crude);
preparations, n.e.s containing by weight 70% or more of petroleum oils or oils obtained
from bituminous minerals,
• Heating and cooling equipment and parts thereof, n.e.s. and

13
• Telecommunications equipment, n.e.s.; and parts, n.e.s. and accessories of apparatus
falling within telecommunications and sound recording and reproducing apparatus and
equipment.
These commodities accounted for 9.8%, 8.7%, 4.8% and 3.2% of CARICOM’s total imports from all
sources respectively and a combined percentage contribution of 26.5%.

For the Region’s domestic exports, the top 15 commodities for 2001 accounted for 79.7% of
CARICOM’s total domestic exports to all destinations. These commodities maintained over 70% of
CARICOM’s total domestic exports throughout the period. For 2001, the top four domestic exports
were:
• Petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (other than crude);
preparations, n.e.s containing by weight 70% or more of petroleum oils or oils obtained
from bituminous minerals,
• Aluminium ores and concentrates (including alumina),
• Other petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude and
• Anhydrous ammonia.
These items accounted for 25.7%, 12.3%, 7.8% and 7.4% of CARICOM’s total domestic exports to all
destinations respectively and a combined percentage contribution of 53.2% in this year. Also these top
four items accounted for more than 40% of CARICOM’s total domestic exports to all destinations
throughout the period (Table 1.15).
