Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is an American country located in the central zone of the Antilles, in the eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola. It is one of the thirteen countries that form the Insular America, Antilles or Islands of the Caribbean Sea and one of the thirty-five of the American continent. Its capital and most populated city is Santo Domingo. It limits to the north with the Atlantic Ocean, to the east with Canal de la Mona, which separates it from Puerto Rico, to the south with the Caribbean Sea, and to the west with Haiti, which is the other country located in Hispaniola.

With 48,730 km² it is the second largest country in the Caribbean islands, behind Cuba and with almost 10,500,000 inhabitants. In 2010, the second most populated, again behind Cuba. Inhabited by Tainos since the 7th century, the territory of the country was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, becoming the site of the first European settlement in America, named Santo Domingo, the current capital of the country and the first capital of Spain in the New World. After three centuries of Spanish domination, the country reached its first independence in 1821 but was quickly taken over by Haiti in 1822. After the victory obtained in the War of Dominican Independence in 1844, the Dominicans experienced several struggles, mostly internal, and also a brief return of the Spanish domination, but Spain had not come to take away its independence.

The American occupation of 1916 to 1924 and, later, the six years in peace and prosperity of Horacio Vásquez, followed by the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. A period of post-dictatorship instability, followed by a civil war in 1965, which ended with a military intervention led by the United States, and finally, was followed by several periods of authoritarian governments of Joaquín Balaguer, the governments of Antonio Guzmán Fernández and Salvador Jorge White. Since 1996, the Dominican Republic has moved towards a representative democracy. The Dominican Republic has the ninth largest economy in Latin America and the largest in Central America and the Caribbean and ranks sixth in per capita income in Latin America, surpassed only by Panama, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina and Mexico. Although anciently known for sugar production, the economy is now dominated by services.

Despite the great economic growth of the last ten years, which averaged 5.1% between 2008 and 2018, there are still problems of basic services and government corruption. The country's economic progress is exemplified by its advanced telecommunications system, which greatly affects the country, since it receives and sends a large flow of migrants. The irregular immigration of Haitians and the legal integration of the descendants of these is the main immigration problem. The total population of Haitian origin is estimated at around 750,000. In the United States there is a large Dominican diaspora, accounting for 1.5 million people, that diaspora helps national development, sending billions of dollars to its families, which represents one tenth of GDP. The Dominican Republic is the most visited destination in the Caribbean.

Throughout the year, the country's golf courses are among the island's main attractions, with the highest mountain in the Caribbean, Pico Duarte in the San Juan Province, and Enriquillo Lake in the Province. Independence, the lowest point in terms of sea level and the largest lake in the Caribbean, Dominican, as it is also called, is a tropical country with an average temperature of 27°C, which varies very little during the year, and a great biological diversity. Music and sport are of great importance in the Dominican culture, with merengue and bachata as national rhythms, and baseball as the favorite sport. The country had the pro tempore presidency of CELAC for the period 2016-2017.
