Exporting to Dominica

Dominica is located between Guadelope and Martinique in the West Indies. In the year to the end of June 2019, the total UK exports to Dominica amounted to £11 million (ONS, 2019).

Improving economy

Real GDP growth is expected to be at 9.4% in 2019, with 4.9% estimated for the following year (IMF, 2019). This should lead to an increase in spending power for the Dominican consumer.

Imported services

In 2018, the top services imported from the rest of the world by Dominica were business services (48.1%), travel and insurance (13.7%) and pension services (7.7%) (ITC Trade Map, 2019). Therefore, as a UK business exporting these services, Dominica could be a good market for you.
