Dominican Republic

The economy of the Dominican Republic maintained the strong growth it had been displaying since 1996. Stimulated mainly by private consumption and by exports, the country' s GDP grew by 7.8%, a rate close to the average for the previous five years. The most serious threat to economic performance was the rise in international oil prices, a problem of external origin that affected tax receipts, external trade and the inflation rate. Inflation almost doubled to 9% after the increase in domestic fuel prices ordered by the new Administration that took office in August.
