Sugar is the main agricultural product of Dominican Republic, one of the largest producers of sugar in the world! 500, 000 metric tons in 2017! Also, we will go to a plantation village and see where the employees live. Approximately a million Haitains work for the 3 sugarcane companies, the one we are visiting is a Puerto Rican company.
