“We are pleased to serve as a stage for an event as important as this, the CLAEC is no longer a commitment of Anadegas, but of the Dominican Republic,” he said.
On his side, Daniel Sanguinetti, outgoing president of that entity, said that through the different realities that each fuel businessman lives, high quality information is created that becomes a great contribution to the authorities of each nation, at the time of making decisions.
“We commercialize fuel so that our economy prospers and our countries advance”, he ratified.
