Dominican Republic seeks to improve food security

Santo Domingo.– The Dominican Republic is developing genetic and technological researches to ensure food security in order to turn the country into a major agricultural producer for domestic consumption, tourism and export.

Keynote presentations from the two-day seminar organized by the Higher Education, Science and Technology Ministry at the Santo Domingo State University (UASD) focused on issues such as biotechnology, genetic resources applied to production, the environment and natural resources.

At the beginning of the seminar Higher Education minister Ligia Amada Melo said that small countries such as the Dominican Republic should develop studies in order to increase food production "for residents and tourists as well as for exploitation."
