Dominican Gov. wants deals with Qatar
Santo Domingo.- The Minister of Energy and Mines and the Vice Minister of Hydrocarbons said Wednesday before a delegation from the State of Qatar the investment potential that the country has in the areas of electricity and fuels.
Both Antonio Almonte and Vice Minister Walkiria Caamaño stressed how important it would be for the Dominican Republic if that Arab State were interested in exploring and investing in these two lines.
Almonte pointed out that the government headed by President Luis Abinader is interested in Qatar being aware of and collaborating with the hydrocarbon exploration efforts in the Dominican Republic and making investments in the renewable energy line.
“For us it is very important that you are interested in this type of exploration and investment in the Dominican Republic,” Almonte said during a meeting with the delegation of officials and entrepreneurs.
Completely disagree!!!! Tourism in a small island IS NOT compatible with hydrocarbon extraction nor with geological digging. The coast, the bodies of potable water, and the mountains as well as the mangroves is what brings tourism.
The Dominican diaspora is 100% against unchecked exploration, digging, disturbance, inappropriate land use, etc.
You start that and we will get you off the island! We will coerce you to respect the image of the country to the world.
No business with countries with cultures that hostile to DR!
