President Luis Abinader affirmed yesterday that economic recovery and sustainability are two of the pillars that the government has identified as its top priorities.
The ruler spoke at the beginning of the construction of a biomass plant at the Nestlé factory in this city, where he was invited. Abinader was received by Pablo Wiechers, Nestlé’s Market Chief for the Latin Caribbean region, who stated that they will contribute to the relaunch of the national economy by investing US $ 70 million between 2020 and 2023.
“There can be no economic reactivation without investment, but there can be no investment if a climate of long-term sustainability is not fostered,” said the president.
The head of state specified that the investments supported in recent months by the government respond to common patterns: economic recovery, quality jobs and long-term sustainability.
Abinader affirmed that he will promote the building of priority works in the country’s provinces, adjusted to the needs and economic priorities of the government, and expressed his support for the city’s development plan, presented by the Economic and Social Council of San Francisco de Macorís, which includes a series of works for RD $ 600 million.
The head of state also made a contribution of RD $ 23 million to the Nordestana Catholic University, which was received by the rector, Monsignor Fausto Ramón Mejía Vallejo, for the development of the academy in the region.
