Dominican Republic Introduction

Dominican Republic is an independent country in the West Indies, a region of the Caribbean Sea.

The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of Hispaniola, the second largest island in the Greater Antilles. Only Cuba is bigger. The remainder of the island is occupied by the republic of Haiti.

A Short Background

A legacy of unsettled, mostly non-representative, rule for much of the 20th century was brought to an end in 1996 when free and open elections ushered in a new government.
