Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s Export and Investment Center (CEI-RD) and the National Supermarkets Association (NSA) of New York City on Tuesday agreed to work to increase the presence of Dominican products in the U.S.
CEI-RD director Jean Alain Rodriguez, after signing the agreement with David Corona of the NSA in president Danilo Medina’s office, stressed its importance for exporters, since the Association’s members purchase more than US$8.0 billion annually.
He said both parties agree to conduct the necessary studies to identify the products, purchase volumes and prices.
In a National Palace press conference accompanied by about 20 NSA members, the official said the agreement culminates several months of work that began with president Danilo Medina’s visit to New York.
Rodriguez said the agreement came on Medina’s instruction, added that Dominican producers will benefit from the large number of products they can market.
