    U.S. citizens need to present either (a) a passport, passport card (available from spring 2008), or
    WHTI-compliant document; or (b) a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, along with proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate.
  • LATER:

Anglo Dominican Trade Council attend Parliamentary Group Meeting with Dominican Foreign Minister

 

The Foreign Minister of the Dominican Republic, Carlos Morales Troncoso, addressed a Parliamentary meeting of Peers and MPs during his recent visit to London. Members of the CBBC and Anglo Dominican Trade Council also attended the meeting.  

During his speech, the Minister spoke about the recent Presidential elections in the Dominican Republic and President Fernandez’s vision for the country for his second term in office. Carlos Morales said that the Government remains wholly committed to achieving the Millennium Development Goals and improving health and education for all Dominicans.  He however noted a number of challenges for the country including food security, climate change and severe weather events, and the price of oil and its impact for the price of transport, energy and agricultural products. The DR he suggested can help internationally with these challenges, for example, acting as the bread-basket for the region in terms of food production, and increasing its production of ethanol and other renewable forms of energy; however, he emphasized that the DR will need support from international partners to achieve this.  He also said that outcome of the elections confirmed the strength of democracy in the Dominican Republic and its increasing commitment to a less fragmented party system.
