Dominican Republic gets new diplomacy law

The newly enacted Ministry of Foreign Relations and Foreign Service Law 630-16 creates a new legal framework for the changes in foreign policy underway at the Ministry of Foreign Relations under Minister Andres Navarro.

Foreign Minister Navarro says that the challenge now is to rigorously apply the law for a more effective Dominican diplomacy. The bill creates the Council for the Diplomacy and Consular Career.
