Economy: The Dominican economy relied on agriculture – primarily bananas – in years past, but has increasingly been driven by tourism as the government seeks to promote Dominica as an “ecotourism” destination. However, Hurricane Maria, which passed through the island in September 2017, destroyed much of the country’s agricultural sector and caused damage to the entire country’s transportation and physical infrastructure. Before Hurricane Maria, the government had tried to foster an offshore finance industry and planned to sign deals with the private sector to develop geothermal energy resources. Dominica is one of five countries in the Eastern Caribbean that have citizenship by investment programs, where foreigners can obtain passports for a fee and revenues from this contribute to government budgets.

Currency: East Caribbean Dollar (XCD).
