Hoteliers have yet to decide on Bahia de las Aguilas row
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s hoteliers and tourism leaders grouped in the Asonahores on Monday said they’ve yet to set their position on the government’s plan to end the land dispute around Jaragua National Park and Bahia de las Aguilas, in Pedernales province (southwest).
Asonahores executive vice president Arturo Villanueva blamed misinterpreted media reports that the entity had voiced a position, issued on Saturday during groundbreaking for a resort in Rio San Juan.
He said the government’s decision over land ownership in Pedernales, which in his view aims to promote tourism development, would have to be evaluated.
Villanueva said Asonahores cannot make a decision on an issue on which its executives and board of directors haven’t been properly informed. "The association doesn’t know the details and has only limited information spread through the media."
He said the entity will decide if it assumes a position at the Board of Directors’ regular meeting next Thursday.
