    I am glad to see that hybrids will still be allowed and not only pure electric vehicles.

    And all of this will be done by citizens from a Country that ranks in worst 10% of education. Many with the level of common sense that borders between ________ and _________. These individuals will help run this new "SMART" Island. And all of this with traditional blackouts even in the 24/7 areas (btw these areas don't really exist- the realtors thought it up). This is awesome!

    They supposedly got computers. That didn't help?

    This will give us a good time span of economic data to debate the economy of the DR in regards to what many here posted.

    We will compare side by side the data from the start year to the end year and see what really happened.

    It will very, very interesting...

    A ten year window is pretty irrefutable and incontestable, although I assume some will attempt to discredit the statistics as provided.

    i happen to like PICHARDO, because he is the kind of guy with whom you can disagree and be safe in the belief that he will be cordial to the end. however, he is as slick as a greased rattlesnake, and you have to keep a close eye on his numbers, or he will run you ragged.

    A decade of solid data is factual beyond doubts.

    Clock will ring in Jan 16th 2018, closing a full decade of economic data to check facts and mete out a reality check versus Doom and Gloom (aka “the bad to worst DR economy”).

    We can argue, debate, disagree, etc... but the facts backed by a ten year time span are beyond challengers.

    The DR economy has grown unlike most others on our side of the globe.
    2017 figures are out, and they follow the trend of the strong economy getting much better.

    Much changed in the DR during this past decade. Some took long to happen, others overnight.

    Let’s debate on facts, not fiction.

    The DR has changed more within the last decade, than it did in the last half century before that.

    Dominican total retail sales in 2017 amounted to US$32 billion. What a crisis!!! lol

    Interesting enough, many countries with a much larger population had a smaller total retail sales for the same year.

    Ivory Coast in Africa was only US$14 billion despite having 2.2 times more people than the DR.

    Tanzania has 4.9 times more people than the DR, but its total retail sales was just US$17 billion.

    Azerbaijan has about 1 million less people than the DR, yet its total retail sales was US$11 billion.

    Tunisia and Bolivia has roughly as many people as the DR, but retail sales amounted to US$15 billion in each country.

    Kenya's retail sales was just US$28 billion, but its population is over 4 times the DR's.
