Fernández congratulated the Ministry of Tourism for the Dominican Republic’s stand and for closing agreements for operations worth 3.645 million dollars.
Omar Fernández, spokesperson for the Partido Fuerza del Pueblo’s block of deputies, highlighted the participation of the Dominican Republic in the International Tourism Fair (Fitur) being held in Madrid, Spain, indicating that the presence of the country in Fitur contributes to generate more jobs, wealth and investments that directly impact the economy and the thousands of families that depend on the tourism sector.
Fernández congratulated the Ministry of Tourism for the Dominican Republic’s stand and for closing this edition of the International Tourism Fair (Fitur 2023) with agreements for operations worth US$3.645 billion, of which US$1.645 billion will already be invested in 2023.
“I am very excited with what I see here because, as you can see, the most crowded stand of all was that of the Dominican Republic in such an important Fair as Fitur, which is considered one of the largest and most important in the world”, said the congressman.
Fernández valued as positive the attendance to Fitur of a delegation of legislators headed by the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Alfredo Pacheco and deputies who are members of the Tourism Commission presided by Deputy Aníbal Díaz, who was unable to attend due to health reasons.
“To be able to interact as a legislator with all the investors, businessmen, hoteliers, tour operators, travel agencies and the entire value chain of the tourism sector is very exciting because when these people see these legislators here, who are the ones who guarantee legal security in the country, it gives them a lot of confidence and that helps to bring more investments”.
Omar Fernandez said that due to the amount of specialized jobs that the tourism sector requires, it would be good to implement public policies that contribute to people graduating and being trained ready to have that job.
“So that if the tourism sector requires thousands of jobs of such type that people leave trained to have their jobs guaranteed and of quality, so that I bet on that and from the Chamber of Deputies and the Permanent Commission of Tourism, I am ready to legislate totally to collaborate in that sense,” he said when interviewed by Moisés González, of the digital newspaper Despertar Nacional.
The Dominican Republic closed this edition of the International Tourism Fair with agreements for operations worth 3,645 million dollars, of which 1,645 million will already be invested in 2023.
