Profile of Haiti’s Garment Industry Program for Expanding Apparel Exports
Haiti’s garment industry enjoys a number of favorable conditions. Through trade acts and agreements, Haitian manufacturing companies have duty free access to the United States. This builds on Haiti’s advantage of being in close proximity to U.S. buyers. Haitian manufacturers have established relationships with U.S. buyers, and are large enough to have achieved economies of scale. Haitian manufacturers also enjoy relatively low wages and favorable labor regulations.
