Fact Sheet Caribbean Third Border Initiative [April 21, 2001]   [open pdf - 26KB]

This fact sheet discusses the role that the Caribbean nations play regarding regional and U.S. national security interests. While these countries are important trade and regional democracy partners, they are also potential sources of illegal drug trafficking, migrant smuggling, and financial crime. The "Third Border Initiative" seeks to implement policies and provide funding to enhance diplomatic, economic, health education, and law enforcement cooperation and collaboration in the region to reduce this illegal activity.
