Businessmen Canadians from various sectors, officials from the government of this country and representatives of the diplomatic corps participated in the reception of the conference “Benefits of investing in Dominican Republic from the perspective of foreign experience.

The conference reception, sponsored by the Dominican Embassy in Canada, was attended by Ms. Robin Bernstein, former United States Ambassador to Dominican Republicas a special guest.
Bernstein noted that he traveled to Ottawa, Canada, to show the important relationship that the Caribbean country and the United States have.
The diplomat highlighted the ease of doing business in the country and what the thriving tourism sector offers foreign investors.
Dominican Ambassador to Canada Michelle Cohen thanked those present, especially Ms. Bernstein, for accepting the invitation to such an important meeting and for the work done in the country during her stewardship as a diplomat.
She recalled that during her tenure as Ambassador, Bernstein had received a trade mission of approximately 50 companies, ports and trade representatives from the State of Florida, who were very interested in the Dominican Republic.
“In addition to the territorial proximity between the Dominican Republic and North America, Dominican Republic has the advantage that the Dominican government offers a good level of confidence, political stability and strong incentives for investors for the commercial, manufacturing, construction, agribusiness, hotel and other sectors, for which we invite Canadians invest and do business with our country,” Cohen said.
