Dominican think tank suggests tourism everywhere
Santo Domingo.- Tourism’s contribution to Dominican Republic’s economy has prompted the Global Foundation Democracy and Development (Funglode) to unveil on Tuesday the RD2044 project, which suggests the development of tourism infrastructure nationwide.
Funglode executive director Marco Herrera said the entity’s president Leonel Fernandez will present RD2044 at hotel Embajador at 7pm, to contribute to develop public policies based on planning exercises.
“Every province has something to offer,” Herrera said, citing southern Pedernales province, where the government pledged to develop high-end tourism.
He said basic projects have also been designed for Pedernales’s fishing community, a gastronomic market, a lookout tower at Sierra de Bahoruco National Park, a wastewater treatment plant, government office building and other urban projects to spurt economic development.
In a statement by the think tank, the expert said another project designed by RD2044, which could be applied in Pedernales, is the Jaragua and Sierra de Bahoruco national parks network of ecotourism projects, including a visitor center.
