Dominican President Receives Agencia EFE President

SANTO DOMINGO – Dominican President Danilo Medina received Agencia EFE President Fernando Garea on Wednesday at the National Palace to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Spanish news agency’s presence in the Caribbean nation.

In a meeting that lasted nearly one hour, Medina spoke with Garea about the history of Agencia EFE in the Dominican Republic and the rest of the Americas.

The meeting was also attended by Spain’s ambassador in Santo Domingo, Alejandro Abellan, by EFE’s bureau chief in the Dominican Republic, Carmen Jimenez, and by the spokesman of the Dominican government, Roberto Rodriguez Marchena.

EFE, the world’s largest Spanish-language news agency and the fourth-biggest overall, celebrated on Tuesday its 50th anniversary in the Dominican Republic with the opening of a photography exhibition.

The exhibition seeks to show some of the political, social and economic changes that have taken place in the Dominican Republic since 1968.

“EFE in the Dominican Republic: 50 years in 50 photos” will be open to the public until Oct. 27 at the Cultural Center of Spain in Santo Domingo.

Founded in 1939, EFE began its international expansion in 1965 with the opening of a bureau in Buenos Aires.

With more than 3,000 professionals working in 120 countries, EFE generates nearly 3 million items per year in terms of text, photo, audio, video and multimedia.
