The Dominican Republic enjoys several comparative advantages that make it an ideal center for business and tourism; its comparatively large size and workforce, its abundance of natural resources, its central location in the Americas, and its tourist-friendly climate and environment, to name just a few. And with a remarkable series of growth indicators in recent years (7% growth in 2018, the highest in the Americas), the island is clearly taking strong advantage these factors.

The Business Year’s country-specific publications, sometimes featuring over 150 face-to-face interviews, are among the most comprehensive annual economic publications available internationally.
