Buckling to pressure, Fernandez “requests” used garment sales resume

Santo Domingo.- President Leonel Fernandez on Friday acknowledged the importance of the country used garments and footwear business, and “asked” to reinstate their sale, via a Customs Agency and Public Health Ministry compromise.

Fernandez said the government’s position is not affect people who consume these products, but protect them, for which he suggests a balance.
