President Danilo Medina to visit Puerto Rico next week
Santo Domingo.– President Danilo Medina will officially visit Puerto Rico on January 13 to participate in the signing of several cooperation agreements with the authorities of that US territory.
Puerto Rican Secretary of State David Bernier said Monday at a press conference that Medina will be accompanied by a large Dominican delegation including government officials and a group of entrepreneurs.
The president will meet with Puerto Rico governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla for a working meeting of the Joint Commission created last October for agreements that promote bilateral economic development, job opportunities and security.
"The Joint Commission has been working for several months with the participation of more than a dozen officials from both countries. The agreements signed are not a formal affair but specific public policy actions that have content and practicality,"said Bernier.
Representatives of both governments, together with members of the Dominican community in Puerto Rico, will pay homage to the hero of Dominican independence Juan Pablo Duarte and Puerto Rican educator, philosopher and nationalist Eugenio Maria de Hostos.
