U.S. Undersecretary of State, Wendy Sherman, praises the warm welcome she received in the country; ties that unite nations, tourism and 11% of the ballplayers in GL.
The U.S. Embassy highlights that more than 3 million tourists visit the Dominican Republic each year, and that more than 300,000 Americans reside here on a permanent basis, which is why the two nations share deep ties that are not seen in other places.
The U.S. delegation also highlights the commemoration of World Art Day, celebrating the life of Sebastian Lemba and his fight against slavery. The embassy also announced the opinion given on Dominican tourism by the U.S. Undersecretary of State, Wendy Sherman, who, during her recent stay in Santo Domingo, considered the visit to be fruitful.
She indicated that Sherman’s visit reaffirmed -once again- “our strong partnership and close collaboration with the Dominican Republic”. The mission showed images and videos -on its social networks- in a gathering of its partners and friends sharing with Undersecretary Sherman.
Some of these images show her meeting with the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader; with the Vice President of the Republic, Raquel Peña; with the Dominican Foreign Minister, Roberto Álvarez, and with several government ministers, such as the Minister of Economy, Pavel Isa Contreras, and the Minister of the Presidency, Joel Santos. In other images, the U.S. official is seen touring areas of the Colonial Zone together with the mayor of the National District, Carolina Mejía. In a video recorded from the Colonial Zone, as stated by Sherman, she affirms that she had a warm and courteous welcome.
He expresses that he met with government and community officials, and with baseball players who are being recruited to play in Major League Baseball seasons. “In fact, 11% of all U.S. baseball players in Major League Baseball are from the Dominican Republic.” She expressed the country’s vitality and fabulous tourism, which she said she knows from having been a tourist at some point in her life.
“In fact, at least three million Americans come here every year as tourists.”
