Santo Domingo.-The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Mipymes (MICM) and the Fiduciaria Reservas on Tue. launched the new “Administration Trust for the Natural Gas Massification Program (Masgas)” to promote the expansion of the unconventional vehicle fleet and diversify energy sources.
The initiative was agreed between Víctor Bisonó, Minister of the MICM; Samuel Pereyra, president of the Board of Directors of Fiduciaria Reservas and administrator of Banreservas and Andrés Van Der Horst Álvarez, general manager of Fiduciaria Reservas.
