Research reveals enormous potential and good market acceptance
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic Export and Investment Center (CEI-RD) on Tuesday released the study ‘Facilitation and Market Access for Agricultural and Agribusiness in New York and Florida, under the DR-CAFTA."
Among the research’s findings figure specific Dominican products with great potential and which whose exports can grow, also confirming the good acceptance of domestic products in places with Dominican presence.
The study found that both New York and Florida, aside from being two of the main consumption centers, are also points of entry to other US states.
It found that Florida, by its nature, has great potential as a re-export point to other Caribbean islands, which the agency says Dominican Republic should exploit.
The consulting firm Agroforsa SRL conducted the research under the CEI-RD’s strategic guidelines, and forms part of an agreement between the agency and the New York National Supermarkets Association (NSA) in January 2013.
“The research forms part of the marketing strategy of the CEI-RD to maximize exports and strengthen commercial ties between producers and buyers.”
