Dominican Republic: The Bean Market in the Dominican Republic

Beans have been historically one of the most important agricultural products in the southwest region of the Dominican Republic, and also an important part of the Dominican diet. Bean production increased during Calendar Year 2016 (CY 2016) to 33,947 MT due to improved sanitary controls and better rainfall. Although the Dominican Government has applied formal and informal measures to limit bean imports into the market, bean imports remained strong during the last few years, totaling 38,546 MT during CY 2016. The United States supplied 92 percent (35,558 MT) of that total.
