After 35 years, Puerto Plata resumes agro-tourism bash
Puerto Plata.- After 35 years since the last event president Danilo Medina on Wednesday inaugurated the third North Region Agricultural and Tourism Fair, aimed at promoting the untapped the potential of the area’s cities.
The activity that’ll conclude Sunday began at 4pm at Eugenio Maria de Hostos Park, where Puerto Plata Chamber of Commerce president Sixto Peralta stressed the need to fix the region’s roads.
He said the Puerto Plata-Navarrete highway must be widened to four lanes while the Gregorio Luperon panoramic route from Santiago requires repairs. "For this, we are working with all social organizations of Puerto Plata, for a public-private investment,” the business leader said, adding the State must invest on the road, “so fundamental to develop this area’s tourism.”
