Abstract

There are numerous analysts, businessmen and other economic agents who question the effects of free trade agreements on the economy of its member countries. After nearly eight years of the entry into force of the free trade agreement between the United States, the Dominican Republic and Central America (DR-CAFTA), its effects are not yet fully conclusive and this is due, mainly, because the difficulty of isolating on the international stage the determinants of the evolution of trade and productive structures of the economies in general and, in particular, of the Dominican Republic. IIT analysis is an approach to the study of these effects. IIT indicators, between the Dominican Republic and members of DR-CAFTA, used show that during the period 2007-2013 such trade is mainly relevant in bilateral trade with the United States, and specifically in the areas belonging to the regime free zones, grouped as industrial manufacturing.
