Dominican Republic: Dominican Republic Swine Voluntary Report-ASF Outbreak Creates Increased Opportunities for US Swine Meat Exports to the DR

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   DR2022-0021

In July 2021, authorities detected African Swine Fever (ASF) in the Dominican Republic (DR). The disease, which rapidly spread throughout the country, crippled local swine production, but boosted export opportunities for U.S. swine meat producers to the Dominican market. With a nationwide control and eradication effort underway, DR will face a nearly 30 percent fall in swine production in calendar year (CY 2023) over the same period in CY 2021; meanwhile, imports are expected to supply the shortfall. With free market access, the United States will continue as the principal provider of swine meat imports into the DR.
