    Post Unification of the DR & Central America

    As many of you probably don't know, in the last few years there has been a movement towards greater unification of several Central American countries, Dominican Republic included.

    A few examples of this would be (each of the following titles are links to their respective articles -all in Spanish, use an online translator if you don't understand them):

    El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua eliminate visa requirement for Dominican citizens.

    Dominican Republic, for the first time in history, achieves the presidency of PARLACEN (Spanish acronym for Central American Parliament, composed of all Central American countries plus the Dominican Republic minus Costa Rica and Panama).


    Central American and Dominican presidents approve the creation of a single Central American currency.

    There are other agreements that points towards ever greater integration within Central America and the Dominican Republic, such as the unification of customs procedures, free trade agreement blocks (ie. DR-CAFTA), among others.

    When you really think about it, the DR is like a Central American country thrown right in the middle of the Caribbean, if only with a bigger and faster developing economy than much of the rest of Central America. One could always argue the racial difference, but the same could be said of various Central American countries too. In the end, the DR does feels like Central America more so than Caribbean, IMO.

    Discuss.

    I'm sure a single currency will work as well as the Euro.

    The "Dominicans" might want to be part of "Central America",but they don't want the DR!
    The Dominican Republic has been found guilty of "Cheating" on the DRCAFTA agreement,many times!
    What did you EXPECT???????????
    This island feels NOTHING like Central America!
    The DR is already unified with Haiti,what more do you want????
    Your question is MUTE!

    Some of it sounds like it could be beneficial but a big no to a single unified currency.

    This will only happen when Santa Claus decides to change Christmas for Easter

    Should 'The Hippo Papi' get back into power in May then we all know this IS a possibility Frank!!!!! He'll pass a bill calling it Semana Santa Claus.

    In MY humble opinion - the bigger the pot, the more levels of 'removal from the originator to the end user/intended beneficiary' .............. the more chance there is for the politicians to take 'their share'!!!

    I think it's HB who describes Parlacen as "the biggest waste of time and money" and it's certainly not short of rivals for that title.
