Santo Domingo.-  The group Acciona SA will be in charge of restoring 13 beaches in the Dominican Republic as the result of a winning bid in a call for tenders from the Dominican Ministry of Tourism, Reuters reports.

"The Dominican Ministry of Tourism has awarded a consortium led by ACCIONA Infrastructure the contract to restore and improve 13 beaches located in seven towns in the Dominican Republic, worth a total of US$64.6 million (around €60 million)," the company says on its website.

"The beaches that will be restored include several located in the most popular tourist areas and idyllic parts of the country such as the Cabeza de Toro, Macao and Arena Gorda-Cortecito beaches in Punta Cana," Acciona adds.

Most of the beaches in the contract have sustained constant erosion as the result of storms since 1998, when Hurricane Georges devastated much of the country's eastern shore.

No doubt good news, assuming it is true. Yet I hate to be cynical. But this is the DR, still a 3rd world developing country, a nation full of predators and opportunists who only care about themselves and who have little to no disregard for the well being of others.
