Indotel’s executive director Jose Alfredo Rizek made the announcement during a seminar on NP, which is a requirement of the Dominican Republic and Central America free trade agreement with the US (DR-Cafta). The government has been working on the technical rules for NP since 2007, which were approved in April 2008 by Indotel’s board of directors following a consultation process with operators. NP is due to be in place by July 2009.
