Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Chancellor, Miguel Vargas, when opening the mission of the technical working group on Youth, Women and Vulnerable Populations: Road to Peace and Justice, highlighted how significant would be if the Dominican Republic were the venue for a meeting of this kind to exchanges on policies and actions against crime, youth and gender violence.
Likewise, he noted that his nation and agencies linked to the social development sectors, have not been alien to the problems, threats and challenges which affect all Caribbean populations.
Vargas explained that as a result of his participation in previous Technical Working Groups, 2013 and 2014, the Dominican Republic reasserted, along with a broad attendance of the Caribbean countries, its commitment to working through government programs to fight crime and violence against women, youth and people in general.
