The Business Year and EHPlus ink partnership on energy sector research

Santo Domingo, 27 May 2024 – The Business Year (TBY), a global media group that has been providing investors, businesses, and governments with first-hand insights into the world’s most dynamic markets for 15 years, and EHPlus, a leading information platform dedicated to in-depth coverage of the Dominican oil and gas industry, have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and will now work together to enhance energy sector research for TBY’s publications, including the upcoming The Business Year: Dominican Republic 2024.

After a five-year hiatus, The Business Year has returned to the Dominican Republic to produce The Business Year: Dominican Republic 2024. With support from partners including the EuroChamber, the French Chamber, and the British Chamber, the publication will highlight the country’s diverse economic and investment opportunities through articles, analyses, and approximately 100 interviews with key public and private sector figures.

Known primarily as a tourist destination, the Dominican Republic offers significant potential in other sectors, particularly energy. The sector is experiencing a dynamic transformation, with increasing focus on diversifying energy sources and expanding renewable energy. Carlos Martinez, COO of The Business Year, said; “The Business Year is dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of the countries we feature. Partnering with local experts like EHPlus in the energy sector is crucial to achieving this. This collaboration will enable us to navigate the rapid changes shaping the Dominican energy landscape and gain invaluable insights into the key players driving this exciting transition.”

Idalia Cabrera, CEO of EHPlus, stated; “The energy and hydrocarbon sector has gained renewed importance due to the challenges of transitioning to sustainable, reliable renewable energy sources. This partnership is another step towards achieving this transition. The Dominican Republic has the potential to become a regional leader in this area, thanks to proactive government policies and robust private sector participation.” Launched in 2022, EHPlus is the first multimedia platform in the Dominican Republic specializing in energy-related content. It offers a bimonthly print magazine and a digital version on ehplus.do, featuring daily local and international news. EHPlus aims to connect the Dominican public with the key stakeholders and trends shaping the energy and hydrocarbon sector.

The Business Year: Dominican Republic 2024 will be published in the last quarter of 2024. The print version will be distributed locally and available on thebusinessyear.com, while the digital version will also be available on major business intelligence platforms such as Bloomberg Terminal, Dow Jones Factiva, Factset, as well as on Google Books and Issuu.
