FAO/15695/P. Gigli

Bananas, sugar, coconut and coffee are some of the more important products making up the traditional export market of small island developing states (SIDS). In 1994-95, the total value of agricultural products exported by SIDS was about US$8.2 billion. Six top exporting countries - Cuba, Cyprus, the Dominican Republic, Fiji, Mauritius and Papua New Guinea - supplied almost 80 percent of the total. Cuba alone accounted for some 45 percent.
