    Electricity and Water Sector

    The water and electricity sector is not a significant contributor to the Dominican GDP. Nevertheless, the upward trend this sector has maintained since the 1970's must be mentioned.

    The energy sector in particular is an extremely weak sector due to the fact that the DR is dependent upon the importation of oil, thus making it vulnerable to the instability caused by changes in the international prices of oil. The country faces a true challenge in terms of the energy sector, problematic not only due to it relationship to oil but also to structural inefficiencies in energy plants, the distribution process, and the collection of electric power. Various governments have tried a variety of approaches to solving this problem, including the revision of rates and payment methods, the construction of new plants, the privatization of the sector, and the search for technical assistance abroad.
