Caribbean-Canadian Common Market (CARIBCAN) and the GATT Policy Negotiations

In relation to the GATT Policy Negotiations, Christopher Mark (1993) provided the following explanation and/or definition of Caribbean-Canadian Common Market (CARIBCAN): A non-reciprocal preferential arrangementestablished by Canada in 1986 to extend tariff preferences to Commonwealth countries in the Caribbean region. Beneficiary countries are Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago. Under CARIBCAN, Canadian duties are eliminated on all products imported from beneficiary countries except textiles, clothing, footwear, luggage and handbags, leather garments, lubricating oils, methanol and alcohol, and tobacco products. Product eligibility requires 60 percent local content.
