The Dominican Republic's government is expecting to double the ICT jobs in next five years. The government is looking for more investors in telecom and IT services sectors.
The Dominican Republic has signed an agreement with the US and Central America (DR-Cafta) for free trading in the country, which demand for additional telecoms infrastructure and services. The government already has several projects underway to address connectivity needs, the biggest of which is its network access project (NAP) of the Caribbean, at an investment of around US$50million. The government has also launched an aggressive rollout of telecenters throughout the entire country that provide Internet services and training for the greater population.
