Dominican official slams the door on bauxite mine as tourism waits

Dominican official slams the door on bauxite mine as tourism waits Santo Domingo.-   Energy and Mines Minister Antonio Isa Conde on  Wednesday defended Government´s strategy to develop Pedernales (southwest), replacing bauxite mining with a comprehensive economic and social plan which protects the environment, in an area  with the most eco-tourism attractions. He said the project will start in the coming months with actions to remediate the environment and construction of infrastructure requiring a massive number of workers with more than mining had provided thus far.”We´re committed to sustainable employment.” He said it’s more rational a brief, short-term sacrifice to maintain an activity that entails serious environmental consequences in the medium and long term for the quality of life of present and future generations. “This decision is above individual interests and focuses on the interests of the country and a population that must keep living beyond when bauxite is exhausted,” Isa Conde said on Panorama, Fidelity radio. When asked why the miner Dovemco wasn’t allowed to extract bauxite during the next 18 months, the official said the government’s plan has a timetable that should not vary for “individual interests.” – Tourism News
