National Human Development Report, 2005

Towards an inclusive and renewed global insertion

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic's 2005 Human Development Report "Towards an inclusive and renewed global insertion" analyzes the Domincan economic and societal insertion in the globalization process.

The report acknowledges that the population social welfare has progressed, even though this progress was not of the magnitude that could have been hoped for given the level of economic growth the island experienced over the last 50 years. During this period, income growth was exemplary: the highest of Latin America and Caribbean, and less volatile than the regional average.
