The Export and Investment Center of the Dominican Republic (ProDominicana) and the Trade Safe Project announced the signing of an inter-institutional collaboration agreement to strengthen the skills of the country’s goods exporters.
The alliance focuses on the transfer of skills and best practice experiences, including training by IESC to the ProDominicana team in relation to the TraSa Project on efficiency and safety of agricultural products.
“The alliance we formalized with IESC will expand the scope of our efforts in favor of the country’s export community,” said Biviana Riveiro, director of ProDominicana.
She added that “we are committed to maintaining an open channel for the exchange of documents, data and information that will facilitate strategic decision making in the area of export promotion”.
Brian Rudert, director of the Trade Safe Project, pointed out that there are many sanitary and phytosanitary threats that the Dominican Republic has to face in order to achieve President Abinader’s vision so that the country can take advantage of its potential and become a regional trade hub.
Entities such as ProDominicana can help in fostering the necessary public-private partnerships in sanitary and phytosanitary issues. The Dominican government cannot do everything alone and needs the private sector to be part of the solution.
