The U.S.-Caribbean Basin Partnership Act of 2000 provides for the duty-free entry of the products from beneficiary countries. This program expires on Sep- tember 30, 2020 or sooner on the date when a free-trade agreement enters into force between the United States and a CBTPA beneficiary country. The CBTPA expands the trade benefits available under the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (CBERA). It allows specific textile and apparel articles to enter the United States free of duty and restrictions on quantity, provided certain conditions are met. It also extends NAFTA standards of duty to non-textile articles that were previously excluded from duty-free treatment under the CBERA.
