The Minister of Tourism, David Collado, visited Toronto, Canada, where he signed agreements with the main tour operators of that nation, as part of the strategy of the portfolio and the Tourism Cabinet.
The agreements were signed with Air Canada Vacations, WestJet Vacations and Sunwing Travel Group, responsible for sending more than one million Canadian tourists a year to the Dominican Republic.
Collado also held a meeting in Toronto with the presence of more than 200 travel agencies and tour operators to strengthen the country’s image and promote its destinations.
Last year the minister also had similar meetings in the United States and Spain. “We are ready to welcome them so that they can enjoy themselves in a magical and safe destination,” said Collado during the activity.
The Dominican Republic continues as the number one country in the world in tourism recovery, for which, in the next few days, the World Tourism Organization will present a recognition to President Luis Abinader and the minister, David Collado, for the outstanding achievement.
60,000 foreign losses
The strategy to recover the Canadian market was strengthened by the loss of 60,000 foreigners due to the war between Russia and Ukraine, countries that sent a large number of tourists to the country on a monthly basis.
