Current industry challenges in the Dominican Republic

The banking sector is in a recovery process after the portfolio damages suffered by the pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus.

The regulatory authorities trust that the entry into force of the new Law 45-20 on Movable Guarantees, as well as the eventual regulation of Fintech products and operations with Cryptocurrencies, will contribute to the recovery and modernization of the banking sector.
