Country´s public debt concerns business leaders: Deloitte

Santo Domingo.- The Deloitte Business Barometer´s sixth edition on Wednesday revealed the importance of the public debt which business leaders cite among the main problems the country must solve, jumping from 10% to 25 %, and figures as the second in their priorities only after the energy issue.

"Businesspersons have a less optimistic view on economic situation," the Barometer sums up, and notes that top executives of international firms in the Dominican Republic note that current research continues to rank the electricity problem as the most important priority, but with a decline in rating, from 46% to 37.4%.

Deloitte managing partner José Luis de Ramon and Dominican Republic economic partner Nassim Alemany presented the report which asked ‘Is the economic situation is the same, better or worse in the last year?, on which 51.8% responded ´the same´; 34.1% said ´better´ and 14.1% said ´worse.´

The percentage with respect to whether it was "the same" was 43.3% in the previous edition, with "better" at 48.4% and and "worse" was 8.3% in the previous survey.
