The president of the Dominican Exporters Association (Adoexpo), Elizabeth Mena, said that in 2022 the country exported goods for US$12,459,483,992, of which US$3,388,398,924.87 were by air, representing 27.35% of total exports that last year.
The business leader stressed the need to expand logistical facilities for entrepreneurs, especially micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.
In this regard, she said that to facilitate air exports of the MSME sector “we have joined forces with the signing of an inter-institutional agreement with United Parcel Service (UPS), to continue supporting Dominican companies in exporting their products through its global logistics network”.
Mena specified that these facilities are a fundamental component for the development of exports by air, indicating that “mining, agricultural and capital goods exports are the country’s main air exporters”.
“Adoexpo members will have access to preferential discounts for domestic and international shipments, training and consulting offered by the international freight forwarding and courier company, UPS,” he explained.
He also added that this collaboration will allow companies to transform and grow with the intensified use of technology offered by UPS, as well as the flexibility and agility to reach more than 220 countries and territories where the company has a presence.
Mena said, “Today we are taking another step forward, a clear demonstration of our commitment to increase the country’s exports and diversify our productive matrix toward new international markets”.
