The president will explain the process and deliver the document with the National Commitment Proposal for a Water Pact 2021-2036 to the Economic and Social Council (CES).

It is a proposal that involves the sum of 8.9 billion dollars. It is intended to create a solution to the water problem in the short, medium and long term, through a State policy, agreed with the society.

The activity will be attended by the institutions that make up the Water Cabinet.

The activity is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. in the Las Cariátides hall of the Government House, where the Minister of Economy, Planning, and Development, Miguel Ceara Hatton, will speak on the “Contextualizations on the water sector in the Dominican Republic,” in his capacity as president of the Water Cabinet.
