Sharing the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, the Dominican Republic is the Eastern part of this Caribbean area. Second in size only to Cuba in the region, the former French colony that was also ruled by Spain has become a huge tourist destination in the past few decades. Western influence is seen throughout the mountainous country that is now an upper middle-income economy with a fairly diverse offering of sugar, gold, silver, coffee, cocoa and tourism. Being a free trade zone has helped to increase the growth of sectors, and whilst the majority of trade is done with the United States, there are markets across the world for business and tourism that have increased demand for low courier costs to the Dominican Republic.
