While Havana’s Barrio Chino is struggling for self-preservation, a new bustling and organic Chinatown in the Dominican Republic thrives, in that country’s capital city Santo Domingo, on Avenida Duarte; it was officially inaugurated as a Chinatown in 2006. While serving the local Chinese community with at least 40 immigrant-run businesses, it is also promoted as a tourist attraction. The development of Chinatown is now gaining momentum, and two gateway arches have been constructed. First-generation Chinese immigrants came from Hong Kong and Taiwan in the 1970s, but migrants had been coming from Asia from the beginning of the 20th century. Wikipedia
