Construction of the first hotels in Pedernales

The executive director of the General Directorate of Public-Private Alliances, Sigmund Freund, expressed his satisfaction with the arrival of the first cruise passengers to Cabo Rojo, Pedernales, and indicated that the cruise ship is the formal opening of a new destination in the DR.

“Getting here has taken us three years of hard work, commitment and dedication, of believing that this day would come and of making good on the promise made by President Luis Abinader, on his first visit to these lands, offering Pedernales the opportunity it had been waiting for for so many years,” he added.

He pointed out that the DGAPP and the Pro-Pedernales Trust have worked hand in hand with the Dominican Port Authority to facilitate the construction of the cruise terminal, as the port is contemplated within the Master Plan of the Pedernales Tourism Development Project that has been in the works since the end of 2020.

He emphasized that with the systematic work of the Pro-Pedernales Trust, significant progress has already been made in the construction of the first hotels, “the first hotel already has buildings in advanced construction with 236 rooms”.

In addition, the executive stated that the water and sewage works and the internal roads are almost ready and that progress is being made according to schedule with the electrical works and to begin construction of the international airport in Oviedo-Pedernales this year.

At the same time, he emphasized that to date, DR$26,000 million have been invested in Cabo Rojo and more than 1,800 direct jobs have been created, which in his opinion has invigorated the economy of the entire southern region.
