The U.S. is by far the Dominican Republic's largest trading partner and its share of the consumer goods imported into the DR is estimated at 70 percent of the total. And, the Dominican Republic is Florida's 5th largest export market making this an excellent market for Tampa Bay exporters.
To help exporters in the region expand into this promising market, the Tampa Bay Export Alliance is leading a mission to the Dominican Republic on December 5 - 8, 2016. The mission will feature one-on-one customized matchmaking with potential partners. Grants are available to qualified companies.
