More Dominican bananas to Europe
Dominican Republic Export and Investment Center (CEI-RD) director Jean Alain Rodriguez says that exports to Europe grew from US$589.9 million in 2010 to US$702.1 million in 2013, a 16% jump.
Speaking at the opening of a workshop “How to Export to Europe,” held on Thursday, 12 February 2015 Rodriguez said that the country is Europe’s second biggest supplier of cacao and the leader in fresh and organic bananas.
He said that the Dominican Republic is one of the leading exporters of several product lines to Europe: fifth in rum, fourth in medical devices and third in fresh bananas. “Let it be understood, we’re doing very well, while exports are declining in the world, they’re increasing in Dominican Republic.”
Rodriguez added that the country exports 3,700 product lines to 173 countries.
