President Luis Abinader used the first half of the weekly La Semanal press meet to explain the effort to launch the Dominican Republic as a hub for manufacturing of semiconductors and microelectronics to benefit young people in the Dominican Republic. President Luis Abinader seeks to be reelected on 19 May 2024, and the majority vote in that election comes from young voters.

During the presentation, President Luis Abinader spoke of the important work carried out by the Las Americas Technology Institute (ITLA) that is now offering courses (6 months to two years) in semi-conductors and microelectronics, working closely with free zones as the country seeks to become a major exporter.

Abinader lacks a basic understanding about how industrial countries work.

The money should be spend in teaching young kids MINT and in promotion gifted education.

The D.R. has nothing, really nothing that would attract a semiconductor related company to invest a dollar in a manufacturing or engineering branch, even if a hundred students finish the 6 month to 2 years courses.

Artificial intelligence changes the way engineers design new chips.

The D.R. could feed the world and money should be spent in for education in the agricultural sector.
