Likewise, when analyzing these and other indicators, he emphasized that it is necessary to continue betting on the tourism and construction sectors, which, together with other priority sectors of the economy, he assures, will continue to develop and represent the future of the country.
“Construction has been one of the great protagonists in recent years, there is no tourism without infrastructure and the Heart City has been a pioneer in real estate tourism,” she said.
Jacqueline Mora took advantage of the masterful event to highlight the work that has been carried out during the three years of management of the current government, under the guidelines of the Minister of Tourism, David Collado.
