Punta Cana, DR.- Deputy Aníbal Díaz stated that the hosting of the 118th Assembly of the Executive Committee of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) highlights the Dominican Republic as a prominent tourist attraction on the global stage.
Díaz expressed that in addition to being an important gathering to discuss the state of tourism worldwide, this significant event once again positions the Dominican Republic as a leading tourist destination in the region, capturing the attention of numerous countries.
