Santo Domingo: center of commerce in the Caribbean
Recently in an interview on national Dominican television the now former American Ambassador to the Dominican Republic talks about the huge opportunities for investors in the Dominican Republic and says there are many brilliant Dominican business people and that investors should not look at the perception of the Dominican Republic but instead at the reality.
I liked him emphasizing looking at reality. If you google Dominican Republic mostly you get vacation info about hotels, beaches, drink cocktails and cultural news. There is not all the negative news about rampant crime and poverty, political upheaval, hunger, racism and economic depression. There is some, as bad news seems to sell more newspapers and is better clickbait.
Dominican Republic has its social problems, there is still too much poverty and corruption still prevents more progress. However there is a lot of positives to report too and there is a free press in the Dominican Republic especially on the internet where there are no limitations.
The American Ambassador in the interview continues to say that Santo Domingo is an extraordinary and diverse center for business and that the government is stable and protects private property and investment. Dominican Republic has easy access to the United States with the biggest consumer market in the world and also easy access to the European markets.
I find that Dominicans are very entrepreneurial and creative. In music you have global stars like Romeo Santos, Juan Luis Guerra and Natti Natasha is the most watched female artist on youtube. In fashion there is the now deceased Oscar de la Renta and many other talented designers. In architectural design one only has to see all the new towers being built in Santo Domingo. Many variations of structures and design. Not many buildings look similar.
