Memoirs of Mr. José Manuel Armenteros Rius are presented

In a moving ceremony that brought together distinguished personalities from the business world, family and close friends, the memoirs of engineer and businessman Mr. José Manuel Armenteros Rius, entitled “Almost 100 years of memory of a man of long numbers”, were published.

“The book, which compiles anecdotes and experiences of Don José, a native of San Pedro de Macorís, transcends the characteristics of a memoir to become a course on Dominican development in almost the entire 20th century and so far in the 21st,” said author Jeanne Marion Landais.

The writer shared hours of pleasant conversations with Don José in order to compile almost one hundred years of experiences ranging from his family life, his contributions to the commercial growth of the country, his passion in the construction of the most important hydroelectric plants in the Dominican Republic and the study of water resources, as well as his love and commitment to the environment.

The event was attended by Mrs. Francette Calac Vda. Armenteros, educator, founder of the Babeque School and a person very close to the family, who commented on the work.

During the event in his honor, Don José, through his son José Manuel Armenteros Márquez, thanked God, family, close friends and collaborators who have accompanied him in the different phases of his life and who for a long time have come to build symbolic bridges, as if they were “engineers of love”. He also congratulated and thanked the young engineers who are choosing this profession in national and foreign universities.

The activity, which took place at Casa España, was attended by influential personalities in the business world.
