• Dominican Republic   2020


In the 20th century the Dominican Republic had the long dictatorship of Trujillo from 1930-61. This was followed by an interregnum of several years including a brief civil war. There were then three decades of authoritarian governments until a new Constitution was approved in 1996. Since then the Dominican Republic has experience normal elections and political transitions.  During almost all of this period economic growth has been remarkable stable, averaging about 5% pa and including up to the present day.

The economic model was initially based on the substitution of imports and the export of primary products but in recent decades the international insertion has evolved towards export orientated Zonas Francas (free trade zones) for industry and call centres and tourism.

The country also relies on remittances from abroad to make up its foreign currency requirements. In 2001 there was a major banking collapse, Banco Intercontinental, which was due to fraud over many years that went undetected. This caused the budget deficit and the rate of inflation to soar for a couple of years but they soon reverted to normal. The majority of it’s exports go to the US.
