Free Trade Agreements

The Dominican Republic has highly favorable connectivity with international markets. We currently have free trade agreements with 48 countries, which gives us preferential access to nearly one billion consumers around the world. The most significant agreements that we have are with the US, the European Union, and Central America. These agreements have established rules of origin allowing the productive integration of the country with suppliers located in dozens of countries worldwide.


The Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) entered into force for the United States, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua in 2006, for the Dominican Republic in 2007, and for Costa Rica in 2009.


The CARICOM - Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement was established between the 15 Caribbean member countries of CARICOM and the Dominican Republic in 2001.


The CARIFORUM - EU Economic Partnership Agreement was established between the 28 countries of the European Union and 15 countries in the Carribbean region in 2008. This agreement aimed to increase the amount of trade, in both goods and services, between the two regions, promote investment opportunities and overall strengthen an international business relationship.
