By 1990, the U.S. share of the Dominican Republic's agricultural import market could reach $450 million, up substantially from the $220-million share (out of a total bill of $250 million) in 1980. This report examines the prospect for expanded U.S. agricultural exports to the Dominican Republic during the eighties. The United States should continue to be the major supplier of grain and oilseed products, and Public Law 480 aid will continue to play an important role in maintaining the U.S. share of basic commodities. A greater U.S. share of the emerging high-value agricultural product market is possible.
