In his speech to the country for his two years in front of the Government, President Luis Abinader highlighted that his management is seen as a benchmark for recovery from the crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said that the “Dominican Republic is advancing on all fronts and is on the path to development.”
“Today the Dominican Republic is an oasis of peace and progress in a troubled Latin America,” said the president.
He also pondered: “We are a benchmark for good governance, for the best management of Covid, for the greatest global recovery in tourism, for the greatest progress in free zones, for the greatest leap in strengthening our institutions and in the fight against corruption.”
Near the end of the speech, he told the Dominicans: “You can be sure that we will achieve our goals, with effort and overcoming difficulties.”
The president delivered a 52-minute speech in front of an audience at the Gran Teatro del Cibao for the second year of his administration. The setting for the speech had to be changed due to the rains in Santiago. The president had planned to speak from the Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration, on the occasion of the 159th anniversary of that feat.
In this speech, the president also highlighted his achievements in managing the economy and announced that the coverage of public education will be expanded from the age of three.
