Suriname signs MOUs with Dominican Republic

Suriname signed four agreements with the Dominican Republic following President Chandrikapersad “Chan” Santokhi’s official visit to the Spanish country; it has been officially announced here.

The statement said that the agreements include cooperation in agriculture, air services, sanitary and phytosanitary matters and in the hydrocarbon industry.

The agreements were signed by President Santokhi and his counterpart, Luis Abenader, noting that Santokhi has invited his Dominican partner to pay a return visit to the Dutch-speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country.

The Suriname Communications Service (CDS) said that President Abenader showed great appreciation for the opportunities that Suriname offers his country, emphasising Suriname’s strategic location within South America and the logistical benefits this brings to the Dominican Republic.

“This is a friendly country, a brotherly country, and we can make significant progress in our bilateral relations for the benefit of both countries, in both the public and private sectors,” Abenader said.

Santokhi expressed confidence in the mutual relationship between the two countries and pledged to work together on various areas of cooperation.

“The main purpose of my visit was to identify areas where we can work more closely and create opportunities for our economies and people,” he said.

The CDS said that a detailed work plan with a timeline would be drawn up to give effect to the agreements.
