Mitur announces tourism and real estate fair in New York

Understanding the value of the United States as the main source of tourists for the Dominican Republic, the Minister of Tourism, David Collado, announced that in January 2024 a tourism and real estate fair will be held in New York.

“And to continue recognizing the importance of New York for Dominican tourism, in January we will have a tourism and real estate fair so that Dominicans living here can invest in the country safely and also have good prices for their stays in the resorts,” he added.

Collado made the statement during the launching of the Change the Season campaign, carried out by the Ministry of Tourism (Mitur) to honor the contribution of the community to the country in terms of tourism; and for this purpose a dome was installed in the renowned Times Square, presenting the main virtues of the country: beaches, mountains and its sweets.

“The United States is the main emitter of tourists to the DR and this year there are between three and four million tourists to the country, New York City is the city that brings more tourists to our country,” said Collado.

The activity was attended by Adriano Espaillat, member of the U.S. House of Representatives, who said that “in Washington they talk to me about beautiful beaches and baseball when they refer to the Dominican Republic”, according to Diario Libre.

Likewise, Ydanis Rodriguez, New York City transportation commissioner, indicated that “in 1983 a young Dominican came to wash dishes in New York, then to make sandwiches. My story is the story of the Dominicans here, today I can return and go to the Rainieri’s hotels, to Punta Cana, to Samaná”.
