Dominican milk producers recognize President Abinader for his support of the livestock industry

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader was honored by the Dominican Association of Milk Producers (APROLECHE) for his important contributions to the Dominican livestock sector. APROLECHE praised President Abinader for implementing key public policies, including the mandate for the inclusion of National Milk in school breakfast programs and the promotion of the Livestock Improvement Project in the Dominican Republic (PROMEGA).

During the 45th annual general assembly of APROLECHE, President Abinader thanked the recognition, affirming his commitment to the national productive sector, particularly with livestock farmers and milk producers.

He highlighted the government’s role in balancing the interests of various economic sectors, always with the aim of supporting domestic producers and guaranteeing fair prices for both consumers and producers.

Addressing the challenges of climate change and recent global crises, President Abinader highlighted the nearly 19 billion pesos delivered to the Agricultural Bank to support national production in these difficult times.

He encouraged dairy farmers to continue improving productivity and assured government support to acquire the necessary technology and equipment.

President Abinader highlighted the importance of maintaining a balance between fair prices for producers and consumers, key to social peace and the continued growth of national production.

Erick Rivero, agricultural advisor to the Executive Branch and president of APROLECHE, spoke on behalf of the nearly 50,000 milk producers in the country.

He celebrated the 45th anniversary of APROLECHE, highlighting the association’s role in strengthening livestock farming and advocating for the sector’s demands. Rivero highlighted the achievements of APROLECHE and PROMEGAN, including the use of nationally produced milk in school breakfasts and the strengthening of cooperative efforts.

The milk production of the Dominican Republic, which exceeds 800 million liters annually and valued at more than 20 billion pesos, demonstrates the important contribution of the sector to the national economy and the successful efforts of APROLECHE under the current administration.
