Delays persist in the arrival of containers from abroad
In spite of the fact that the world is starting to have an economic recovery after the closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the situation in the delay of the containers is maintained due to the fact that the international conditions of exports and imports still persist.
When consulted by Listín Diario, the president of the Association of Industrialists of Herrera (ANEIH), Noel Ureña, said that there is still a shortage of raw material including in the industrial, food, construction, energy sectors, among others.
In addition, he noted that the cosmetics sector is also being affected because there is less and less raw material available with higher prices.
He attributed this problem to the fact that the factories are working part-time, so that other countries more “powerful” than the Dominican Republic are monopolizing the raw materials.
Meanwhile, the president of the Dominican Confederation of Small and Medium Construction Companies (Copymecon), Eliseo Cristopher, reported that the affiliated builders are paying the tariffs at the same price as before, but what they pay for containers has doubled.
