Dominican Republic: Exporter Guide
The Dominican Republic is the third largest market for US consumer oriented agricultural products in the Western Hemisphere, after Canada and Mexico respectively, with US$489 million in imports in 2013. US agricultural fishery and forestry exports to the Dominican Republic, meanwhile, totaled $1.185 billion. The CAFTA-DR agreement has strengthened the U.S. competitive position in the Dominican market, with consumer-oriented product exports increasing by 70% since the enactment of the agreement. There are still important opportunities to be leveraged by US exporters in the DR market.
