Trade Policy of Grenada - Selected Documents
This section centralises information relating to Grenada's national trade policy. Government trade policy overviews, national development strategy papers as well as information on agreements, regulations, standards, and the investment climate are also presented in this section.
Grenada's trade policy is clearly not developed in isolation, but rather within a regional and global trade context. Over the years, the number of commitments derived from participation in the World Trade Organisation (WTO), as well as CARICOM, the OECS, and other regional trade fora has increased. As such, documents that provide some insight into these regional and global policy frameworks have been included.

National Trade Policy
"Over the last decade Grenada trade policy evolved as a result of its participation in international, regional and bi-lateral trade agreements. The change in trade policies reflected a shift from import substitution to a more liberalised trading system. The erosion of trade preferences, including the trend towards liberalisation of world trade, the establishment of the WTO and the proliferation of regional trade agreements have all impacted on the formulation of Grenada’s trade policies."
