Dominican Republic port at center of US-China showdown

Santo Domingo.- The United States is on the offensive in its relations with China, concerned about the neocolonialism that the Asian nation resorts to when investing in a country, in addition to the use of people’s DNA, said US International Finance Development Corporation (DFC) executive director Adam Boelher.

Interviewed by Dominican media at the residence of US Ambassador Robin Bernstein, the US official gave as an example that the United States will promote investments in the port of Manzanillo, on the basis that it will always be from the Dominicans.

He stressed that the United States “doesn’t dictate policies like China does,” since they are not based on what others do, because it is a “very threatening” way, said Boelher.

He said he always keeps abreast of what China and other investor countries are doing. That’s why they focus on what they want to differentiate themselves. “We differ in that this is seen as a private investment conversation.”

One of the concerns, he said is to see how China is managed, with a colonized way where debts are created, ports are taken and an example of their actions is that there are countries that have lost control of their ports for 99 years.

Dominican government has new agreement with the United States for 2B American dollars

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic. Small companies, women entrepreneurs, workers, and industries will benefit from about two billion US dollars that will be provided by the United States International Development Finance Corporation (DFC, for its acronym in English) to the country the framework of the América Crece program.

This results from the signing of the cooperation agreement between the Dominican Republic and the United States to finance energy, tourism, and other infrastructure projects to strengthen the primary industries, create jobs, and support the local economy.

President Luis Abinader and Foreign Minister Roberto Álvarez signed the agreement on behalf of the Dominican Republic. In contrast, for the United States, they signed the ambassador Robin Bernstein and Adam Boehler, executive director of the DFC.

The agreement fosters the América Crece program, an initiative of the United States Government to promote growth throughout Latin America and the Caribbean by mobilizing energy and infrastructure investments.

“This agreement highlights the strong commitment of the United States to the Dominican Republic and the essential role of investment in advancing our shared goals,” said Boehler.

“The Finance Corporation for International Development is proud to support this agreement by offering our financing tools to help mobilize the investment needed at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted tourism and other industries.”
