Medina cuts ribbon on US$8.0M call center
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Thursday headed ribbon cutting for a modern call center built by the company Teleperformance at a cost of US$8.0 million, which in a first phase will provide 2,500 jobs for young people, especially women.
Speaking in the ceremony, Dominican Republic Export and Investment Center (CEI-RD) director Jean Alain Rodriguez said the initiative pushes Dominican Republic closer to president Danilo Medina’s goal to create 400,000 jobs during his four years in office, providing incentives and support for free zones, agro production and with the Solidarity banks.
“With this model which generates a first job we contribute significantly to eradicate the so-called “NiNi” Generation, of youngsters who neither work nor study, as promised by our president in his Government Plan.”
He stressed the service sector’s push with 112 call centers nationwide thus far, providing around 35,000 jobs and more than US$200 million in wages for Dominicans.
Teleperformance is located on Roberto Pastoriza Av., in the Naco sector of the capital.
