Failed electricity system hobbles the country’s development

Morass

Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic will never be able to surmount the underdevelopment gap if it fails to achieve a sustainable and competitive electrical system.

That’s how Dominican Republic Industry Association (AIRD) president Campos De Moya sees the decades-long crisis.

He said he expects the Electricity Pact will be signed in the next few days and. “It’s the first step towards a comprehensive solution to the problem of electric energy, which has had serious implications in the nation’s social and economic life.”

“A key element of the competitiveness of our national productive sector is a reliable, competitive and financially sustainable national electricity service,” De Moya said, quoted by diariolibre.com.
