From a statement issued by PROCOMER:

As part of the commercial strengthening in an internationally competitive context, the Dominican Republic has launched a project entitled 'Measures to Support the Banana Sector', in order to enhance this productive sector.

"Bananas in the Dominican Republic are well positioned in the world because of their quality. Now we have to strengthen that value in order to gain market share around the world.  It can be said that quality is the last ditch to gain market share," said Galindo.
