Province of Santo Domingo accounts for 36% of all DR inhabitants

The Province of Santo Domingo is the most important province in the Dominican Republic, says Rafael A. Burgos Gómez, president-founder of the Association of Industry and Commerce of the Province of Santo Domingo (ASOINCO). He made the observation when swearing in the new board of the association now under Joaquín Hilario.

He said 36% of all inhabitants in the Dominican Republic live in the province or 2,700,000 according to the 2010 Census. But Gomez estimated that the population in Greater Santo Domingo (including the National District) has grown to around 4.2 million people. Of these, 1.3 million are eligible voters. The province also contributes 34% of the GDP and 36% of the National Budget.

The province of Santo Domingo runs from the west to the east, surrounding the National District. It is the location of important trade free zones, such as San Isidro, Parque Cibernético, Los Alcarrizos, Gildan, Boca Chica and Santo Domingo North.
