Barahona, Dominican Republic.- Barahona’s first tourism fair has served not only to highlight “The Pearl of the South’s” known potential as the main enclave for the Southwest’s economic development, but also to show the firm willingness of its various economic, social and institutional actors to articulate a sustainable tourism development strategy.
The event ‘Discover Barahona Tourism and Production Fair: Towards Sustainable Development’ was hosted by the Barahona Tourism and Productive Cluster, headed by business leader Virgilio Pérez Bernal.
