Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is one of the largest Central American markets for U.S. food and agricultural products. U.S. exports reached a record $1.3 billion in fiscal year 2014, up 13 percent from the prior year. Soybean meal and oil, wheat, corn, diary, and processed food products were among the top U.S. agricultural exports to the Dominican Republic last year.

The United States works with the Dominican Republic both bilaterally and through the CAFTA-DR agreement to promote mutually beneficial trade and investment. Since CAFTA-DR went into effect there in 2007, U.S. exports to the Dominican Republic have seen substantial growth.
