ALVIN CURLING SPEAKS IN PUERTO PLATA




Canada is also concerned about the Dominican
crime rate

PUERTO PLATA. – Canada’s Ambassador said on Saturday that the increasing security deterioration in Dominican Republic concerns him, and that that situation not only constitutes a danger for tourists -as affirmed Italy’s ambassador Giorgio Sfara, also recently stated- but also for all those of us who “reside in the national territory."

Alvin Curling, speaking to mark the 138th anniversary of his country’s Independence, pointed out that despite this, the more than half a million Canadian tourists who come to Dominican Republic annually will continue arriving every year, because of the warm hospitality from Dominicans, who "make us feel at home."

The diplomat denounced the current high index of prostitution of minors in the country, for whose control his Government funds two projects and one from Toronto University, which is participating in other programs to benefit Dominican youth.

The Canadian diplomat- quoted by the newspaper Listin Diario- made his statements during a reception hosted last Saturday by the industrialist Juan Carlos Morales.

During the activity, Canada’s ambassador was accompanied by the president of the Dominican-Canadian Chamber of Commerce and vice-president of the Scotiabank, Jim Wilson, the Commercial attaché Helene Guillot and Honorary consul, Tim Hall.
