Punta Cana.- On Wednesday, President Luis Abinader conducted a series of inaugurations in the province of La Altagracia, showcasing the government’s dedication to various sectors. First, the President, alongside Jean Luis Rodríguez, the Executive Director of the Dominican Port Authority (APORDOM), opened the Cabeza de Toro Tourist and Fishing Dock.
This facility is expected to benefit approximately 30,000 registered fishermen nationwide and enhance the living conditions of the local community.
Following that, President Abinader, in collaboration with José García Ramírez, the Executive Director of the National Council for the Aging (CONAPE), unveiled a modern reception center for the elderly in San Rafael de Yuma.

The President also participated in other significant events, including the inauguration of the Eastern Industrial Park, the opening of a new branch of Almacenes Unidos in Punta Cana, and the 46th Meeting of the Technical Commission (RCT) of the International Labor Organization (ILO) and Cinterfor.
During the latter, President Abinader emphasized the country’s low unemployment rate, noting that 34% of the new jobs created last year were given to young people starting their careers.
