Event Summary:
With a population of 10 million consumers and a GDP of $59 billion, the Dominican Republic (DR) is the tenth largest economy in Latin America and the second largest in the Caribbean region in 2012. The United States represents, by far, the DR's largest trading partner. Fully 43.6% of imports into the DR are of U.S. origin. There is extremely high receptivity to U.S. goods and services and U.S. product standards are generally accepted. Since the implementation of the Central American and DR Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) signed in March 2007, bi-lateral trade has grown at a robust pace. By 2012, U.S. exports to the DR had grown by 33% over the pre-CAFTA days of 2006. The strength of the trade relationship stems from close geographic proximity and the historic cultural and personal ties that many Dominicans have with the United States. Best prospect sectors for US exports include: Automotive Parts, Hotel and Restaurant Equipment, Travel and Tourism, Safety and Security Equipment, Renewable Energy Products and Equipment, Telecommunications Equipment, Printing and Graphic Arts Products and Equipment, Computers and Peripherals, Medical Equipment and Building Products. Join us for the “Business Opportunities in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Webinar” on Thursday, January 23, 2014. This first chapter of the Business Opportunities in the Caribbean Region Webinar Series will bring you the latest on Dominican Republic's growth and the opportunities this offer to American companies in many industries.
