VICINI is the oldest company of the D.R, starting with the exploitation of sugar cane, and in the latter end of the XIX Century, and with time, it has moved to the semovience of evolving demands to diverse investments that contribute to promoting national development.
It is possible to appreciate the VICINI saga in the recent days when the consortium representative, Juan Vicini Lluberes, whom presides the Fundación Desarrollo Fronterizo (Fundefro) (*Border Development Foundation), inaugurated featuring the presence of president Leonel Fernández, an auspicious project of border development, on the 4th this month in Elías Piña, the most impoverished province in the country, followed by El Seibo.
Macasías was the venue for the commencement of this laudable project, whose purpose is to rescue the border strip from oblivion and misery, leaving it forgotten ever since the Generalissimo Trujillo built the Anacaona Villas, Mariano Cestero, Guayajayuco and others, and that no other government, till now, had followed up as border protection to the pacific Haitian invasions whom dangerously overflow us today by over two million nationals from that country, a fifth column that undermines the territorial and juridical integrity of the DR.
VICINI is also partner with EGE-Haina, and will inaugurate on the 11th an ambitious wind energy project featuring an investment of USD$100M, to produce clean energy by 8.25 megas, with capacity to light 80,000 homes and save 200 thousand barrels of crude oil.
Felipe Vicini represented the Group in this memorable act, that the country hopes will be imitated for other economic reasons, in the manner that it increases the availability of clean energy at a much lesser cost than fossil energy.
