Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic can be more aggressive in exports and must also exported large quantities, be innovative and varied in its products, and use society’s skills to improve the quality of trade.
Former Costa Rica Foreign Commerce minister Alberto Trejos made the statement in the conference "Strategies to internationalize business and taking advantage of free trade" staged Wednesday in the launch of the first Dominican International Trade Center (CIDA), in the hotel El Embajador.
Trejos said an intelligent insertion in the foreign market makes exports the main engine for growth, creates jobs, income and attract currencies, and is the vehicle for the country’s diversification.
The business leader also stressed that for a more advantageous trade the country must sell not just farm products but also technological and medical services, which in his view attracts good investment as a mechanism of transformation.
