Dominican Republic exports jump 17 per cent, or US$10.0B more
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s exports will jump 17%, or around US$10.0 billion more this year, while the region’s other countries can expect growth no higher than 5 percent, Dominican Republic’s Export and Investment Center (CEI-RD) announced Tuesday.
CEI-RD director Jean Alain Rodríguez said the diversification of products which has kept the country present in 167 nations also led to increased exports, with 750 high-demand items such as agro and agro-industrial products, with preferential access to 876 million customers worldwide.
Rodríguez spoke during a meeting to train consular officials and diplomats to further boost exports, aimed at making the country more competitive in new markets around the world, held at the CEI-RD’s Business Innovation Institute, with the Foreign Ministry’s support.
