Our tourism industry is changing and has been recognized as the most resilient in the world’.
For the president of the country, ‘this result is thanks to the work of all Dominicans who believe that we can do things well, in a private sector that decided to work with the government to achieve recovery in record time, and in a government that works tirelessly and transparently to achieve a better country’.
