Delegates from 110 Countries Attending Dominican Republic Drug Conference

PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic – Delegates from 110 countries are participating in the 34th International Drug Enforcement Conference, which began Tuesday in the Dominican Republic and at which new strategies for fighting drug trafficking will be discussed.

The conference is being organized by the Dominican Republic’s National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD) and the US Drug Enforcement Administration under the slogan “Excellence in Investigation.”

The gathering will also enable participants to analyze global trends in illicit drug trafficking and will promote cooperation and information exchange with an eye toward combating such crimes.

The conference was inaugurated by Dominican President Danilo Medina, DNCD chief Edmundo Felix Pimentel and the charge d’affaires at the US Embassy, Patrick Dunn.

At the opening ceremony, Medina said that over the past four years more and more narcotics have been seized in the region because “more drugs are being produced and more are being consumed.”

Pimentel said that cooperation must continue to be strengthened among all countries to implement more effective drug control policies, along with controlling organized crime.

Dunn said that the US administration is committed to the fight against criminal activities on the US border and in his country’s judicial and financial systems, as well as in other areas.

Among the speakers at the conference, which will run until Thursday and is closed to the public, will be Colombian Vice President Oscar Naranjo and DEA assistant administrator Anthony Williams.
