Kazakhstan sees in DR role model for tourism development

The Dominican Republic and Kazakhstan signed a memorandum on tourism cooperation during the visit of Foreign Minister Miguel Vargas to Kazakhstan. The agreement was signed in a ceremony presided over by Dominican Foreign Minister Miguel Vargas and Kazakh Culture and Sports Minister Arystanbek Mukhamediuly, who also serves as the government’s tourism affairs coordinator.

The trip was part of the Dominican Republic’s participation in the Expo 2017 Astana international exhibition, open from 10 June to 10 September 2017.

The agreement is aimed at promoting, improving and supporting efforts and activities of tourism-related professional institutions and other organizations.

A press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Relations indicates that the parties pledged to pay special attention to the development of bilateral tourism relations with a view to strengthening their economies and fostering greater mutual understanding of their respective cultures. It added that they would focus on the exchange of experiences in the financing area and skills development for small and medium enterprises in the tourism sector.

Vargas said that 4,500 Kazakh citizens traveled to the Dominican Republic in 2016, and the number is expected to increase this year.

Mukhamediuly says the Dominican Republic is a model for further developing the Kazakhstan tourism industry.

Kazakhstan has set a target of receiving around 8 million visitors annually by 2025. The Dominican Republic received upwards of 6 million travelers in 2016.
