Medina orders purchase of local agro products without middlemen

Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Monday issued an executive order which, among other measures, orders the “exclusive” purchase of domestic agro products directly from producers without intermediaries, provided there’s enough quantity and adequate quality.

Medina says several institutions are in charge of executing the provision including the Police, the Education Ministry and hospitals, among others.

The measure also provides for the purchase of drugs and supplies from public health protection programs to encourage the national pharmaceutical industry, improve its competitiveness and promote its technological innovation.
