The Dominican Republic is about to become the main Logistics Hub in the Caribbean, according to the general director of Customs, Eduardo Sanz Lovatón, who assured that the corresponding steps are being taken for these purposes and progress has been made in that regard.
Giving a conference on the subject at the Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM), the official explained that among the steps that have been taken is the installation of “X-Rays” in the port of Haina, as well as the “Despepacho 24 Hours”, which comes to reduce the time of departure of the merchandise that passes through the Dominican Republic, as well as the guarantees of security and lower cost.
He assured that turning the country into a Logistics Center will represent an asset for investment and job creation, which due to the geographical location and the quality of its ports and the different communication routes, as well as the approval of the General Law of Customs, it will be easy to achieve.
In another order, Sanz Lovatón reported that the institution he directs has achieved a surplus in collections of more than 40 billion pesos, which has a positive impact for the Dominican economy.
Likewise, he expressed that the executions from the Government have allowed to achieve record figures in collections in Customs, obtaining a growth of 30 percent.
