Ecuador, Dominican Rep. to cooperate on energy, tourism, the disabled

Santo Domingo.- Ecuador president Rafael Correa and Dominican colleague Danilo Medina on Monday agreed to boost cooperation in energy, tourism and to create jobs for the disabled.

The announcement comes after a more than one hour National Palace, where the Ecuadorian leader stated his willingness to work with Dominican Republic on energy.

Correa, who came to the country as a special guest of the International Book Fair, announced his willingness to work to create jobs for people with disabilities, in which his country has made significant strides.

In exchange, Medina said Dominican Republic will help the South American nation improve its tourism development, and to that end, announced a visit by a Tourism Ministry commission to Ecuador.

The Dominican president, who said he’ll attend Correa’s inaugural on May 24, added that his wife Candida Montilla will visit Ecuador to learn about programs for the disabled.
