    History for you all: The DR peso was at parity versus the US dollar on oficial Exchange. On the streets you had to pay 15 to 25 cents to get them to accept it when using it as payment outright (no exchange houses then, only banks). The exports were stagnant for years on end, due to the high...

    GoodYear to set logistics hub in the DR

    This is 100% true. Location of factory is moot. Exact same quality and materials. I hope this turns eventually into a new factory in DR. Would simplify the chain a lot more.
