Abinader backs border development

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader swore in at a hotel in the capital the members of the Coordination Council of the Special Border Development Zone (CCZEDF), leading his first working session as a sign of his commitment to the development of the border .

He promised that the government will finance the projects aimed at border communities and that it will become the first promoter of Law 12-21, on border development, which replaces Law 28-01, although he said that in each meeting with investors he motivates settle on the border.

According to the government official, in the last 16 years it has been shown that if the political will does not exist, even if special laws are created, it is not possible to achieve the development of an area that he intends to turn into an attraction for investment and job creation. .

“They will have all the support. I will be one more seller so that all the companies are established on the border,” said Abinader, which caused applause from the public present at the place.

Special laws will buckle with abuse.

It is practically a guarantee there will be abuses of the environment by development. It is practically a guarantee the quotas of foreign labor used for development will exceed limits imposed by law. It is practically a guarantee there will be an expanded mafia to funnel illegal foreigners into the work arena.
