The Dominican Republic still offers a very wide range of choices to invest in different job sectors, since many services here are lacking or deficient.

Many Italians who decided to move and live in the Dominican Republic make the mistake of immediately starting a business without first knowing the territory where they are going to invest, not only ,but they also get confused with costs for example ,renting a commercial space for 400 euro a month and thinking it’s cheap when in fact it’s not because wages here are much lower than in Italy and finally  they realize that it wasn’t cheap after all.
If you want  to make an investment in an activity you can start a new one (according to your skills and needs of the place), or buy one that’s

already started, for example, if you want to buy a restaurant, pizzeria or  bar there are already several opportunities of existing activities , but remember to be very careful, not to trust anyone (Dominican and Italian), rely on qualified people like a lawyer.
