In the January-June period, exports from El Salvador to the Dominican Republic amounted to US$71 million, while Dominican exports to the Central American country totaled US$5.7 million, informed the Investment and Export Promotion Agency of that nation, which initiated a business round to establish alliances with local partners.
The Government of that country, through a press release, indicated that the commercial exchange between both States reached last year the sum of US$159.2 million, while between the months of January and June of this year reached US$76.7 million.
This Tuesday began a business round of a trade mission visiting the Dominican Republic, composed of 15 Salvadoran companies, at the Dominican Fiesta Hotel, coordinated by Invest and the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The day includes an agenda of 117 business meetings with 69 potential Dominican partners, so that Salvadoran products can benefit from the tariff preferences of the free trade agreements in force between El Salvador and the Dominican Republic, such as the DR-Cafta and the bilateral Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Central America.
The companies that make up the trade mission are Algier’s Impresores, Artes Gráficas Publicitarias, Distribuidora de Alimentos Básicos, Agave, Undesa, MM Calcetines, Sacos Sintéticos Centroamericanos, American Doors de El Salvador, Fábrica de Máquinas Envasadoras Salvadoreña, Plásticos Salvadoreños, Garbal, Industrias Sanchia, Manufacturas Cavalier, Industrias Samia, Invest and Coval.
