“From the Ministry of Tourism we will spare no effort to guarantee the definitive take-off of tourism in this beautiful province,” said the official.
He also reiterated that the recovery of tourism is total in the Dominican Republic, where more and more visitors are arriving.
Collado said that the effort to achieve the recovery of tourism has been worthwhile, since thousands of people returned to their jobs.
“My greatest satisfaction is when I visit a destination and someone comes up to me and tells me that thanks to the work we have done they recovered their job and with it the economic stability of their family,” he said.
