Dominican Republic: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   DR2023-0012

In 2023, U.S. agricultural exports to the Dominican Republic (DR) are on pace to reach an all-time high, powered by strong demand from the food service sector for consumer-oriented products. Meanwhile, tourism, primarily from the United States, is forecast to break another record in 2023, following a banner year in 2022 with more than 8.5 million visitors. As the DR continues to list as one of the fastest growing and most dynamic economies in Latin America and the Caribbean, it continues to rank in the top three as a consistent and top destination market for U.S. consumer-oriented products in the Western Hemisphere and number two in Latin America, trailing Mexico.
