Altos de Chavón,Dominican Republic, Hispaniola island: a man is making a cloth in a traditional machine. The Dominican Republic's most important trading partner is the United States.
An important aspect of the Dominican economy is the Free Trade Zone industry, which made up U.S. billions in Dominican exports. The textiles sector experienced an approximate 17% drop in exports due in part to the appreciation of the Dominican peso against the dollar.
