  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   DR2024-0003
Sugar production in the Dominican Republic (DR) is forecast to reach 520,000 metric tons (MT) due to favorable rainfall conditions through the first half of marketing year (MY) 2024/2025 (October - September). Production for MY 2023/2024 is estimated at 500,000 MT, compared to the previous marketing year. Despite ongoing import restrictions imposed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on sugar and sugar-based imports on the leading Dominican producer, Post expects that the DR will meet the U.S. sugar quota for fiscal year (FY) 2024.
