GFDD and FUNGLODE Convene Panel at the UN to Discuss Opportunities for Growth in the DR’s Capital Markets

April 30, 2013

The United Nations Dag Hammerskjöld Library Auditorium has been secured as a venue to celebrate one of the several activities of Semana Dominican 2013 (Dominican Week 2013). Global Foundation for Democracy and Development and its sister organization in the DR, FUNGLODE, in close cooperation with Dominicans on Wall Street (DOWS), the American Chamber of Commerce DR, and the Dominican Republic Mission to the United Nations are joining
forces to host a panel discussion entitled; “Moving Forward: Growth and Opportunities in the Dominican Capital Markets”.

Recently, the DR has made great strides in the development of its capital markets, achieving high solvency in the banking sector, improving the institutional framework for the management of public debt and experiencing steady growth in the value of both the private bond market and the assets of pension funds. However, the
level of financing directed to the economy is still small, given the country’s level of development, and there are important structural challenges that need to be addressed. This high level panel of financiers will give an overview of the Dominican Republic’s financial system and will offer a series of recommendations to help develop and grow the country’s capital markets.

Speakers include; Felipe Amador, EVP/CEO,
Bolsa de Valores de la Republica Dominicana
, Rodolfo Vela, Director of America Credit Markets, Citi, Diego Torres, General manager, BHD Valores Andres Slullitel, CFO, Consorcio Energetico Punta Cana- Macao (CEPM).
