Dominican Republic power plant of scandal to go on the block
Beijing.- President Danilo Medina said Friday that the government will hold a tender for investors interested in the Punta Catalina coal fired power plant, mired in the Odebrecht graft scandal.
“There are people interested in investing in Punta Catalina, but there what you have to do is an international tender, you have to be very transparent and that’s what we are doing,” he said.
When asked about the opposition’s complaint that negotiations with the Asian country were being handled with secrecy, Medina said that all the agreements signed here will be transparent and that all Dominicans will be afforded all the details
“Everything that is done here will be transparent, there is nothing to hide,” Medina said after laying a wreath on Tienanmen Square or Heroes’ Square as part of a tour of the mausoleum that houses the resting place of Chinese leader Mao Zedong.
Medina’s agenda includes ribbon cutting for the Dominican Embassy Saturday afternoon and with his entourage fly to Shanghai, where he will participate in an international fair and deliver a speech.
