The Dominican Republic is a relevant country to study as a role model of development given that its legacies and characteristics are common to many developing economies. While sharing many of the same challenges, the Dominican Republic has experienced comparatively rapid economic growth and improvements in a variety of development indicators.
But much remains to be done as restraining inflation and maintaining overall macroeconomic stability is necessary though not sufficient for achieving sustainable economic growth and development. The event The Dominican Republic: Issues and prospects will aim at throwing light on some of country’s challenges by focusing on the labour market, macroeconomic and exchange rate dynamics, monetary and fiscal policies, foreign trade, and cocoa production.
