Dominican Republic: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   DR2023-0018
The Dominican Republic (DR) is ranked among the top three destination markets in the Western Hemisphere and within the top 15 markets globally for U.S. consumer-oriented products. In 2022, U.S. exports of consumer-oriented products to DR topped $1 billion, 19 percent higher year-on-year primarily due to strong demand from foreign tourism and the retail sector. During the first 10 months of 2023, U.S. consumer-oriented exports reached over $900 million, up three percent relative to the same period last year. While trade in the consumer-oriented category continues to expand, the United States is on pace to once again consolidate its position as the top supplier of consumer-oriented agricultural products to the Dominican Republic, capturing nearly a 50 percent share of the import market.
