Tourism growth is not limited to hotels DR

The president of the Association of Hotels and Tourism of the Dominican Republic, Asonahores, David Llibre, celebrated the growth registered by the RD last February 2024.

“Today we continue to celebrate the growth of tourist arrivals by air and cruise ships, whose presence strengthens the country’s economy and boosts the productive activities of the communities directly and indirectly related to tourism.”

Llibre expressed himself in these terms while speaking during a podcast where the results of the industry during the month of February of this year were presented at the headquarters of the Ministry of Tourism.

He stressed that “the economic and social effect of these results are not limited to airports, hotels, restaurants and transportation companies. These results are being felt in thousands of small and medium-sized enterprises throughout the country. Let’s remember that the last study on the impact of tourism on MSMEs registered 17 thousand productive units of this category throughout the national territory whose activities are directly or indirectly linked to tourism”.

President of hoteliers recounts

Turismo HotelesThe president of the hoteliers made an account of the actions carried out in the last weeks, “we were together with the Ministry of Tourism at the ANATO Tourism Fair in Bogota, Colombia and at ITB Berlin in Germany. In both events, we had a good representation of our sector and we were able to show the benefits that are part of the set of attractions that make the RD a paradise for millions of visitors, making us a reference for the world.

In these fairs we achieved a commitment to create a new air connection between Bogota and Puerto Plata. We also managed to maintain and consolidate flights from Germany and Switzerland to the RD. These are extremely important agreements for the arrival of tourists from these important markets, he said.

He also stressed that these actions are the ones that contribute to keep the tourism figures growing month after month. “In addition, in these fairs they allow us to learn about the strategies of other destinations with which we compete in these important markets, and remind us that we have competition and we are not alone in the tourism markets.”

Effort to improve quality of life

He said that the continuous effort to improve the quality and diversity of our product, and the initiatives to show our offer to the different markets, is what makes the figures and results grow, and also reflect the importance of the Marketing Committee in which the Ministry of Tourism and private actors work and define strategies together to maintain the pace of growth that produces economic flows that contribute to the applauded successes in the performance of the Dominican economy.

Finally, he stressed that “Asonahores reiterates its commitment to continue working and to further strengthen the coordination and collaboration between the Government and the private sector in tourism. Let’s keep moving forward! This is what the country needs in these complex and difficult times”.
