The President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, decreed the creation of a Special Commission to submit a detailed report in consultation with all the sectors involved to identify strategic sectors to maximize the current context of reconfiguration of global supply chains.
The President assured that the results obtained will set out a clear path containing specific proposals for action and the design of regional alliances that will place the country in a position to achieve the highest possible levels of competitiveness.
Abinader’s motivation for promoting competitiveness is for the Dominican Republic to become the most important logistical and industrial ally in the Western Hemisphere and an example for the region.
The entities that will be in charge of this Special Commission are the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Mipymes (MICM), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Competitiveness Council, who in a period of no more than 90 days must deliver the report to President Abinader in order to begin the deployment of the proposed actions.
“With this effort we seek to generate a positive change that will allow us to position the Dominican Republic in the global path of exponential growth and development,” said the president.
Abinader spoke during the event “Free Zones, Zones of Opportunities”, organized by the Dominican Association of Free Zones (Adozona), in coordination with the MICM and with the special support of the National Council of Free Export Zones (CNZFE).
At the meeting held for the National Day of Free Zones, Abinader stressed that the country’s logistics infrastructure is world-class, which, added to our connectivity, places the nation on the inside track to consolidate itself as a reliable and efficient logistics and industrial hub.
The President assured that in the Dominican free zones great talents are forged, while a series of products and services of high quality and positive impact on the international market are generated, as a result of the highest quality standards and in the best conditions of competitiveness offered by the market worldwide.
“Our country’s free trade zones are no longer zones of promises, but spaces of real results. They generate an incredible potential that makes us grow every day and position us advantageously in the global context of a production and trade sector with an international and globalist vocation,” said Abinader in a speech.
