Seminar aims to identify Dominican Rep.-Jamaica business opportunities

Santo Domingo.- The Roundtable of Commonwealth Countries in the Dominican Republic on Tues. announced the seminar How to do Business with Jamaica on Aug. 23, during which public and private sector representatives from both nations will identify trade and investment opportunities between the Caribbean neighbors.

The seminar to be held 8am to 12 noon in the Sheraton Hotel’s Salon Yarey will also follow up the recent visit to the Dominican Republic by prime minister Andrew Holness of Jamaica, a Commonwealth member State and an important trade partner among the region’s countries.

Roundtable president Fernando Gonzlez Nicols will deliver the welcoming speech, which includes remarks by Foreign Relations deputy minister Hugo Rivera; Dominican ambassador to Jamaica, Jos Ares; Jamaica Money Market Brokers (JMMB) country president Guillermo Arancibia; Dominican Republic Hotels and Tourism Association president Joel Santos; Dominican Agribusiness Board (JAD) president Osmar Bentez, among others.

“The seminar is timely as the Caribbean market is natural for Dominican products, and that it would also be beneficial to identify synergies in the tourism and agricultural sectors with Jamaica,” Gonzlez said.

In a statement, the Roundtable president said the event is open to the public by inscription, and interested persons can contact and telephone 809-338-0808.
