Industries see no excuse not to sign electric pact

Jiguey dam needs repairs.

Santo Domingo.- The signing of the electric pact remains in limbo despite business leaders’ insistence on consensus which paves the way to enforce the points which most of the actors have agreed on.

Dominican Industry Association (AIRD) president Celso Juan Marranzini, called on the government and all sectors to assume the challenge of signing the pact and work together to improve the energy supply and in turn improve the competitiveness of companies and ease the burden of the Budget’s fiscal deficit.

He labeled the pact an issue of great national interest that requires the consensus of all sectors “including politicians, businessmen and all in general.”

The recently-sworn AIRD president stressed that the pact will benefit companies, the Government and the neediest population that suffers blackouts.
