I would not believe much of this. The dominican government helps itself…leftovers maybe to its citizens. We all know this. Sad they need to pat themselves.

$20 Billion RD could be more than enough to fix the sewer problem, create 100,000 jobs for poverty people, fix electric system and re-pave roads entirely in Santo Domingo. Go figures.
