Santo Domingo.-  The British Chamber of Commerce (BritCham) staged its 25th anniversary by stressing its key support for United Kingdom-Dominican Republic bilateral relations.

BritCham president Campos De Moya said trade between the two countries jumped from US$10.0 million in 1987 to US$280.0 million today.

"The British Chamber has contributed positively to a stronger business relationship between Britain and the Dominican Republic, and we feel that there’re currently great opportunities which can be exploited, both to boost Dominican exports to the British market and for Britons to continue to invest in our country’s market," De Moya said.

The British Chamber is currently the second biggest and most active among the country’s binational chambers, with a select membership representing the business communities of both countries.

From experience I will not invest one peso in Dominican Republic, where the justice system does not exist, the corruption is rife and authorities take no interest in investors and the concept of one stop shop purported by President is pipe dream. I proposed the same to Eddie Martinez, previous minister of CEI, 6 years ago, keep on dreaming DR........... !!!!!!

Dominican Republic: Protests of Nickel & Gold Plans

By Carlos Cardenas

November 16, 2012

On Nov. 11 Congressman Adriano Sánchez Roa, of the Dominican Republic’s ruling PLD Party, criticized the award of a license to Canadian mining firm Unigold, claiming it would threaten environmentally protected areas, particularly the Manolo Tavárez Justo National Park.

The criticism comes at a time of increasing anti-mining protests. On Oct. 1, the La Vega provincial court ordered the suspension of Xstrata subsidiary, Xstrata Nickel Falcondo's Loma Miranda project and granted third-party access to the site. The project is opposed by locals and NGOs, including the Padre Rogelio Foundation, on environmental grounds and local landowners such as former Gov. Chestaro and Sen. Félix Nova. On Oct. 19, Xstrata confirmed it would challenge the judgment.

There have been protests outside the Loma Miranda site in La Vega and between September and November. Opponents of the project have demonstrated outside the presidential palace, foreign mining companies' offices and the Canadian Embassy in Santo Domingo.

Protests against the Pueblo Viejo project have led to violence. Between Sept. 28 and Oct. 5, violence broke out at the mine and fires were set in streets of nearby Cotui. Twenty protestors were injured during confrontations with the police. The protests at Pueblo Viejo are primarily focused on demands for local spending and jobs for local residents.

The government has reiterated its commitment to mining development. A Nov. 12 statement from Environment Minister Bautista Rojas Gómez emphasized that future development was advantageous to the country.

However, the protests have led the government to request an UN Development Program assessment of Loma Miranda before issuing further official statements. In 2010, an UN Development Program assessment of a cement plant project resulted in its cancellation.

The strengthening of environmental groups, backed by foreign NGOs, means that mining firms are increasingly likely to be targeted with civil unrest and court action. This increases the risk of project delays, but also of license cancellation, particularly if demonstrations turn violent.

Ricardolito,
The British through history had proved that they are not to be trusted. When they go to a country, they suck the blood out the country they go to. They never become part of it, but are superficial and treat the host like un “Bagazo de caña”. The British and their descendants had always being jealous of Spanish things and accomplishments, just look at USA relation with LA thru history; I do not to explain this for it’s very obvious. Besides, the British wants to do one of the jobs they do best, putting their nose where they shouldn’t. In order to steal Dominican ocean water from us, the British are setting the stage to get know our “dirty secrets and use them against us when the time is right. Wait and see.

British go home; we do not need more tourists like you AND YOUR BAD LIQUOUR. YOU ALREADY STOLE MANY CAREBEAN ISLANDS AND LAND FROM OUR ANCESTORS. GET OUT OF DR AND GET OUT OF THE MALVINAS, FUERA DE LAS MALVINAS.
