The Dominican Republic has played a major part in the growth story that is the Latin American economy.

The Caribbean island shares around half its land mass with Haiti, is home to 9.4 million people and is a middle-income developing country with the largest economy in the region – not least because of the relatively recent boom in holidaymakers seeing it as a cut price way to do the Caribbean.

The economy has been enjoying steady growth since 2005 but is currently going through a slight downturn – GDP has average 6% in the last nine years but currently sits at 4.1%.

Tourism is the country’s leading foreign exchange earner although agriculture, construction and mining all play an important part in keeping the country ticking over.

And its strategic geographical location means its ports and airports offer easy access to the rest of the Caribbean, the US and Latin America. But current Covid-19 restrictions mean that travel is not permitted between the UK and Denmark, so it’s the safe way to stay in touch.

If you’re thinking of doing business in the Dominican you’ll need an east-to-use and reliable international conference call provider – so here’s how to set up a call in a few simple steps…

Our need to stay connected at all times means, telephones have never been more popular – 95% of UK households now own a mobile phone, compared with just 16% back in 1997, according to figures from Statista, a leading provider of market and consumer data.

But if most of us carry a mobile around with us and the analogue phone system is due to be switched off by 2025, where does that leave the good, old landline?

Business insurance costs are on the rise. Insurance giant Aon has reported that the six-week period from the start of April to the middle of May saw insurance premiums increased by 27% from the same time last year, and this is largely as a result of an increasing number of ransomware cyberattacks.

This recent spike in ransomware activity is putting pressure on businesses to improve cyber defences as a matter of urgency. Is your business protected?

Denmark can be an attractive proposition to many UK businesses looking to widen their European net as not only is it the gateway to the Scandinavian and Baltic countries, it’s also close to the growing economies of Germany, Sweden and Poland.

Current Covid-19 restrictions mean that travel is not permitted between the UK and Denmark, so it’s the safe way to stay in touch.

More of us are working from home than ever before. But as we slowly start getting back to normal after the pandemic, many of us will be returning to offices up and down the country, even if only on a part-time basis.

The pandemic has also seen a lot of job losses. This has, in turn, seen a growing number of people starting their own business.If you’ve started up on your own, you’ll be conscious of the need to keep overheads low – and working from home can work out a lot cheaper than renting out office space.

And having employees is no reason to rent out separate office space, you can simply kit them out with a laptop and a smartphone and some other essential tools for remote working and they’ll be able to do their job just as well wherever they are.

If you need to collaborate on anything you could arrange to meet up at your home office, a coffee shop or conduct a meeting via conference call.

There comes a point, however, when you outgrow your home office – the trouble is though, you may not be aware or willing to accept you have.

So here are five telltale signs you’ve outgrown your home office…
