Canada needs Dominican labor; looks to boost US$500M yearly trade
Santiago.- The governments of the Dominican Republic and Canada will sign an agreement to recruit local labor for that nation’s services sector, Canadian Embassy Commercial attaché Aladín Legault announced Tuesday during a visit to Santiago
He said the agreement lacks only a few details, and cited a spiraling demand for workers in his country’s services areas, especially plumbers and cleaning staff.
In another topic, the diplomat revealed that commercial transactions between both countries top US$500 million yearly, paced by export of Dominican cacao, coffee, vegetables and fruits.
Legault met with the heads of Santiago’s Retailers and Industries Association (ACIS), who lauded Canada’s trade with that province’s businesses, which work to further open that market to local products and to eliminate red tape.
