Under the topic "Agricultural model in a controlled environment", Chávez addressed the limitations and advantages of maintaining greenhouses, stating that "not everyone can do it in the Dominican Republic," taking into account that seeking technical assistance is mandatory.
There were also discussions between all sorts of national producers regarding the anticipated productive restructuring project of San Juan Valley, which will have a cost of more than 13,880 million pesos (331 million dollars), as announced by the Government earlier this year.
Producers from various regions concluded that growers' opinions are being ignored by the project, "which is why it is doomed to fail."
José Miguel de Peña, president of the Greenhouse Cluster, said that, although the tendering of 6 million square metres for greenhouses in the Valley of San Juan this year is a reason for satisfaction, the situation has also raised concerns.
Peña explained that these concerns arise from the need to introduce the necessary technology and the training of technicians, which is why he believes that a discussion is needed.
