DescriptionThe West Indies and the continental countries bordering the Caribbean Sea constitute a significant market for U.S. wood products. In 1983, wood product exports to the region totaled almost $157 million. The Caribbean Basin primarily is a market for softwood products, with pine lumber being the most prominent item. The flow of exports to the region is dominated by (1) overseas shipments from southern ports to the West Indies and (2) overland shipments from the Southwestern United States to Mexico.
