The law renews the commitment of the Dominican State to promote the welfare and quality of life of its citizens abroad, with the responsibility that it assumes in the national territory.
The Fade would be a state agency, but decentralized, with administrative and financial autonomy, its own patrimony, with legal personality and capacity to contract rights and obligations.
