Abstract

The U.S.-Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA) was approved by the U.S. Congress on October I, 2000, and President Clinton signed the proclamation to implement the act on October 2, 2000, as Title II of the Trade and Development Act. The CBTPA constituted an expansion on the 1983 Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (CBERA), which was the initial form of the I983 Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI), and it sought to gain the advantage that had been lost with Mexico's entry into the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
