Abstract: Despite observable commonality and differences, it is evident that the Caribbean region has been able to achieve higher economic integration as opposed to the Pacific. This study therefore methodically analyses intra-regional trade flows for the Caribbean and the Pacific region using an array of trade indicators compiled by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP, 2007) to assist in comprehending the current pace and pattern of trade flows within the two regions. The study investigates the degree of openness within the respective regions; shows the levels of trade overlaps across various commodities; and discloses the comparative advantages in major commodities along with the service industries within the Pacific and Caribbean region over a period of three decades.
