Dominican Republic recognizes the US as a strategic ally
Santo Domingo.- The United States was recognized as a strategic ally of the union forged by Costa Rica, Panama and the Dominican Republic.
By virtue of this, a working group was created so that Latin American countries insert themselves more effectively into the supply chains of US companies.
The key areas of insertion are the manufacturing and service sectors. “(…) with a view to promoting its growth and the positive impact that it causes in promoting our objectives of sustainable, inclusive and resilient development,” reads the Declaration of San José.
At the fourth summit of the Alliance for Development in Democracy, an agreement was reached with the United States to take advantage of the proximity of markets, the promotion of greater flows of trade and investment and to reduce vulnerabilities in supply chains.
The meeting was held Monday the 21st in Costa Rica and the US was represented by its Deputy Undersecretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment, José W. Fernández; the Under Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Brian Nichols; and the deputy administrator of the USAID Office for Latin America and the Caribbean, Marcela Escobari
