The World Bank’s Trade & Competitiveness Global Practice launched a new report entitled “Free-Trade Zones in the Dominican Republic: Policy Considerations for a More Competitive and Inclusive Sector,” to which GEP fellows Fabrice Defever and Alejandro Riaño were contributors.
The report outlines a series of policies designed to strengthen free-trade zones in the Dominican Republic as a path toward sustainable and inclusive economic growth, and its effective use in order to attract foreign direct investment and generate better-qualified and better-paid jobs.
The report was launched on 22 February at the II Forum on Global Linkages that took place in Santo Doming. The event was co-organized by the World Bank, the UN Economic Commission for Latin America, the Dominican Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Chamber of Industry of the Dominican Republic and the National Association of Free-Trade Zone Exporters.
