These arrests are exposing more evidence of the institutional corruption that plagues the country. Guess what is on the mind of many in the population is how long is the country’s leadership going to scrub soil out of government organizations before the clean shows?

Our president is the worst. He’s stealing 3 or 4 times as much as the last president. He’s selling our country to United States & China.

I agree he is trying to clean up decades of corruption. You shouldn’t have to pay police off because the government does not pay them well.

I believe once he enters his second term, he can really dedicate his efforts to cleaning the corruption. The first term is hard to get it done. They spent a lot of energy focusing on infrastructure and modernization. Things like good roads and bridges. Improvements and expansion in transportation like train systems. If you don’t travel farther than your barrio, you wouldn’t be aware of all the new and modern growth and opportunities that has been emerging from this administration. Unfortunately they are not good at showcasing their many accomplishments.

Do they have many accomplishment? What he has done in turn of agriculture? Raising employees salary? There is still a health program issue there?

The first thing that Pres. Abinader, has to do during his second term is to remove the ability that foreing countries have to buy our land in DR. Mexico does not allow any forighners to buy mexican land. No other country besides the USA allows people to buy their land, but as we all know there is no comparison, especially know with the Haiti situation, where Canada is building a town for Haitians. Canada doesn’t want haitians in Canada, only in the Dominican Republic yes go figure.

Do you have any credible source to back up your statement regarding Canada’s plan to build a town for Haitians in The DR? I did a little google search nothing popped up. If you do, please share.

It’s a global economy. Stop taxing the citizens on imports so they can live a better life. Pay your police more so that there is less corruption instead of asking for hand outs which is bribery

The fact that the people need to jump through hoops to get a bank account tells all you need to know about distribution of wealth in the DR.
Anti-Laundering Policies, make it difficult for the citizen with little formal education.

Do you have any substance to substantiate this claim ????
