This has been stated by the Ministry of Economy, Planning and Development of the Dominican Republic (MEPyD).

The bilateral agreement was signed between the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service of Chile (SERNAPESCA) and the National Council of Fisheries and Aquaculture of the Dominican Republic (CODOPESCA).

The Dominican President stressed that Chile is among the 10 countries with the highest fisheries and aquaculture landings and production.

Currently, the South American country exports fishery and aquaculture products for USD 5,000 million, of which about USD 3,000 million corresponds to salmon.

The MEPyD also explained that the project ' for institutional strengthening of CODOPESCA' has the general objective "to develop an effective and efficient sanitary-hygienic control system of the Dominican fisheries and aquaculture sector."
