Tourist services have "improved markedly" in Dominican Republic
A large delegation from the Dominican hotel industry attended the XXX International Tourism Fair (FITUR) that was held in Madrid, Spain. Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia hosted a luncheon for the presidents of Spanish hotel chains that operate in the Dominican Republic and a dinner for the Dominican delegation. During the luncheon, the Spanish guests said that tourist services in the country had improved markedly over the years and they said that they appreciated the fact that the Dominican government had taken an interest in protecting the industry. They also commented that the Dominican Republic had increased in quality as a destination over the past 2 or 3 years.
Javier Garcia announced the conclusion of Territorial Zoning of the tourist areas, including the National Signage Plan that will enable overseas visitors to travel around more easily.
