About the product
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has had a presence in the Dominican Republic since as early as 1890 and has played a prominent role in its economic development. A new ambitious development goal has now been set that focuses on making the country a regional leader in high-value-added manufacturing and services. In light of this objective, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) carried out this Investment Policy Review. It provides an overview of FDI trends and impact, examines the investment framework and proposes a new investment promotion framework.
