Grupo Puntacana celebrates 54 years of business legacy with a view to new investment projects and betting on innovation, expansion and diversification to generate a positive impact on the economic, social and environmental development of the country.
The brand, made up of more than 12 companies led by Frank Elías Rainieri, president and CEO; Paola Rainieri, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Francesca Rainieri, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Grupo Puntacana, is developing several projects.
Among them: the construction process of the Punta Cana Free Trade Zone (PCFTZ) Air, Maritime, Land Logistics Center and Free Trade Zone Park, with an approximate investment of USD$200.00 MM, a project that will house cargo logistics operations and offices for the development of the Punta Cana HUB, aimed at innovation and development of Fintech companies.
The project, which is being built on an area of 546,617.45 m² of land, will contribute to the sustained economic growth of the area, create more than 10 thousand jobs and position Punta Cana and the Dominican Republic as a leader in trade and foreign investment, projecting the country as a logistics hub, making it a bridge between Europe and America, and to the south and north of the American Continent.
In addition, with the recent expansion of Terminal B of the Punta Cana International Airport, with seven boarding gates, built with an investment of USD$80.00 million, in an area of 25 thousand m² of land, three million passengers can be mobilized, and more than 60 flights were received in its first days of opening.
Thus the company proudly celebrates a pioneering vision that, over time, has been forged with hard work, paving the way for a paradise that today represents Punta Cana, a destination that has become the main tourist center of the country, and the largest in the Caribbean islands and Central America.
Its commitment to the community and the environment is latent in its business strategies, driving progress and transforming dreams into sustainable realities in the communities where it operates.
Their goal is to continue to be the hosts of the millions of visitors who arrive through the terminal and enjoy their dream getaway in the tourist zone.
