Dominican Republic joining the club of biofuel producers
The Dominican president, Leonel Fernández, claimed that this agreement had clearly several targets. First, it will use these crops to revitalize agriculture and create jobs and then, they wanted to collaborate with the fight against climate change. "This affects to all of us. If the poles melted, the island of Hispaniona (which is divided into Haiti and the Dominican Republic) would be submerged," Fernández said.
The Dominican Republic is already producing ethanol using sugarcane also with Brazilian technology and investments.
