“We thank the 31 sponsoring companies and the 40 sponsoring firms that will be exhibiting products and services for their trust and support in making possible the organization of this meeting in the Dominican Republic, one of the countries in the world that has shown the greatest capacity to reactivate the aeronautical activity and its tourism industry,” said the ALTA representative.
The general director of the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC), Román E. Caamaño, praised the importance of the meeting, assuring that its celebration in the country represents a new recognition to the national aeronautical sector and to the image of the Dominican Republic as a tourist and investment destination.
