San Juan, DR.- On Monday, Rafael Cruz Rodríguez, the general director of the Center for Industrial Development and Competitiveness (Proindustria), spearheaded the inauguration ceremony for the commencement of operations at two industrial warehouses belonging to the tobacco company “El Artista” in the Free Zone Industrial Park of San Juan.
