Caribbean Central American Action (CCAA) is committed to promoting private sector
-
led sustainable
economic development in the small economies that make up the Caribbean Basin (CBI Beneficiary
countries).


Acting as an honest broker between private enterprise, civil society, and the public
sector, CCAA has led the creation of opportunities to create workable partnerships to more
aggressively confront the twin challenges of worsening poverty and increased global competition by
attracting capital and creating jobs in the Caribbean Basin.





The Dominica Trade Facilitation Pilot Project represents the outgrowth of this mission to address the
welfare of the citizens of the Caribbean through efficiency in trade by a core group of CCAA
transportation partners such as Tropical Shipping. CCAA in its commitment to improving the
competitiveness of the economies of the Caribbean, supports the establishment of best practices for
modernizing customs operations in the Caribbean.



Anticipated results for the partnership will be increased fast, reliable, and transparent clearance
services while advancing international cooperation, developing regional standards for security and
customs operations, and encouraging dialogue and cooperation between traditionally divergent
partners.
