Dominican Republic: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Dominican Republic (DR) is the fifth-largest market for U.S. agricultural products in the Western Hemisphere, valued at $1.26 billion in 2019. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the growth rate of U.S. agricultural exports to the Dominican market, especially for consumer-oriented products. The demand for those products has decreased by 7 percent during the first 9 months of 2020 due to a significant reduction in the flow of tourists coming into the country and the closure of restaurants throughout the nation.
