    Default Dominicans on Wall Street (DOWS)

    DR1 and DOWS proudly announce the launch of a new forum.

    Need an explanation on Dominican bonds? What is the perception in Wall
    Street on how the economy in the DR is doing? Dominicans on Wall Street,
    Inc. hosts this section.

    This forum section is the result of brainstorming during the visit of a
    10-member delegation of Dominicans on Wall Street to the DR1 offices as
    part of their spring visit to the DR. They come regularly to keep in
    touch, encourage young Dominicans to take the plunge into higher
    finance, and find ways to strengthen ties between Dominican business
    professionals in the DR and the US.

    The moderators of this forum, which can also be accessed through the
    DOWS website, are Robert Abreu, Emmanuel Martinez, and Josefa Sicard
    Mirabal. See their biographies at http://www.dows.ws

    Hey Emmanuel!

    Como estas? Welcome to DR1! Last time we talked I was inviting you to a Juan Luis Guerra Gala event in DC. Just saw Cid last week but we didn't get a chance to chat. He did his proverbial plug for DOWS at the NCLR event. Glad to have you guys on board. I haven't met some of the newer DOWS folks but if you guys ever want visit DC just let me know.

    One of my girls is transferring down to the Deloitte & Touche office in NYC in about 2 weeks. I'll connect you guys. Look out for her. She is one kick-butt Dominicana with a tight game. I hope she'll have time to get involved with you guys.

    Default GDP - Washington???

    Deelt - when I saw your name in this thread, it reminded me of our last conversation. You had recommended that I reconnect with the GDP in Washington. I appreciate your help and advice, but I did not have any luck. Their website is terribly outdated, and doesn't look like it's been updated since 2004.

    Also, at one time I reached out to DOWS as well, but never heard back from anyone.

    Your thoughts?

    Steve

    This message is for Josefa Sicard Mirabal. I noticed you served as Chief Justice of the Civil, Commercial and Labor Court, La Vega, Dominican Republic, and as Judge of a Small Claims Court, La Vega, Dominican Republic. My wife is Dominican and she is from La Vega. I have reached out to DOWS via e-mail last year, explaining my interest in becoming a member, but nobody ever got back to me. I realize that I am not Dominican, however, I have alot of knowledge about the country and society in DR. I have worked on Wall Street for over 6 years now, and I think I can help your cause. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Let me name a few things you might remember: Hotel Rey on calle restaurancion, a small campo calle Arenoso, restaurante induveca. They should all ring a bell. Let me know. Thanks.

    Default Real Numbers

    Would any of you DOWS members have actual numbers and/or viewpoints on the recent economic downturn effect on remittances back to the DR? Local reporting has not been so reliable. Thanking you in advance..
