Background[edit | edit source]

The first recorded mention of Chinese in the Dominican Republic was in 1864 (Pancho el Chino). There are also reports of businessman bringing in Chinese workers from Cuba. During 1916- 1924, a large influx of Chinese came during the American occupation of the country. Then in 1937, due to the Sino Japanese war, there was an increased amount of Chinese immigrants to the Dominican Republic. As of 2012, there are over 3600 recorded Chinese Dominican residents. [1]
