In our discussion, we will explore the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19 on the Dominican Republic, and the prospects for economic recovery, including through a resurrection of the critical tourism industry and the new government’s plans to promote the Dominican Republic as a “near-shoring” opportunity for U.S. manufacturers exiting China. We will also address the consequences for the Dominican Republic of Haiti’s prolonged political challenges.
