Haiti is not a country that focuses on export. It is considered to be among the countries with a weak export capacity. If you take the year 2008, Haiti exported for a total of $490 million worth of goods. Their primary customers include the United States (70.7%), Dominican Republic (8.9%), and Canada (3.1%). Some of the products include: apparel, oils, cocoa, mangoes, coffee and some manufactured goods.
Here is an analysis of the export in Haiti, compared to other Caribbean islands. According to the figures, in 2010, Haiti exported a total of $530.4 million worth of goods. If you want to compare this with a country like Jamaica, their number is much superior. Jamaica exported for $1.376 billion for the same period. Our neighbor, the Dominican Republic exported for $6.598 billion worth of goods and services. Cuba exported $3.816 billion worth of goods and services in 2010
