The United States and the Dominican Republic Advance Cooperation on Bilateral Aviation

Today, Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment Jose W. Fernandez and Minister of Tourism David Collado from the Dominican Republic met at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. to advance progress on our countries’ bilateral aviation cooperation. The delegations, representing the departments of Commerce, State, and Transportation and the Dominican Ministry of Tourism and Institute of Civil Aviation, signed a Memorandum of Consultations, marking the conclusion of negotiations on a bilateral Air Transport Agreement (also known as an “Open Skies” agreement) between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Dominican Republic.

This proposed agreement, once signed and entered into force, will meet the highest standard of aviation transportation agreements, opening the door for the United States and the Dominican Republic to expand our two countries’ bilateral aviation relationship. The Under Secretary emphasized the U.S. government’s intentions to work closely with the Dominican Republic delegation to complete the necessary domestic processes with a view to expeditiously signing and bringing the proposed agreement into force.
