Dominican govt gets funds for development from Taiwan

Dominican Republic: The Dominican government received on Thursday a donation of USD 750,000 from the Taiwan government for territorial development. The fund will be used for the development of legal framework of the town of Barahona, sustainable management of natural resources and regulation of urban land use, according to the Communications Unit of the Ministry of Economy, Planning and Development.
The Taiwan government grant will also be used to finance a pilot project that aim to create an information platform of spatial data or tools for interaction between territorial mapping information from Geographic Information System.
Temistocles Montas, Dominican Minister of Economy, Planning and Development, said that Taiwan is working in the country with 87 projects of cooperation with 53 public and private institutions and attributed the steady growth of the Dominican Republic to increase its economy. He added that growth in turn generates a constant external and internal migration which therefore creates the need for further initiatives to regulate land use and land management, which he described as accurate steps towards development.
