Ottawa, Canada. Canadian businessmen from various sectors, Canadian government officials and representatives of the diplomatic corps participated in the reception conference “Benefits of Investing in the Dominican Republic.
“Benefits of investing in the Dominican Republic from the angle of foreign experience.”
The activity was defined by the Dominican ambassador to Canada, Michelle Cohen, as the prelude to the organization of a second mixed mission (public-private) to the Dominican Republic to explore trade and investment opportunities.
The conference reception, sponsored by the Dominican Embassy in Canada, was attended by Mrs. Robin Bernstein, former U.S. Ambassador to the Dominican Republic, as a special guest.
Bernstein emphasized that she came to Ottawa to show the important relationship that the Caribbean country and the United States maintain.
The diplomat highlighted the ease of doing business in the country and what the booming tourism sector offers to foreign investors.
Dominican Ambassador to Canada Michelle Cohen thanked those present, especially Mrs. Bernstein, for accepting the invitation to such an important meeting and for the work done in the country during her tenure as a diplomat.
She recalled that during her time as ambassador, Bernstein received a commercial mission of around 50 companies, ports, and commercial representatives from the state of Florida, who were very interested in the Dominican Republic.
“In addition to the territorial proximity between the Dominican Republic and North America, the Dominican Republic has the advantage that the Dominican government offers a good level of confidence, political stability and solid incentives to investors in the trade, manufacturing, construction, agribusiness, hospitality and other sectors, so we invite Canadians to invest and do business with our country,” said Cohen.
