With a total investment of 1.8 billion dollars and 7,000 new rooms for the next 5 years, the construction of the Selectum Hacienda Punta Cana complex becomes the largest in the country’s tourism history.
The executive thanked President Medina and the Minister of Tourism, Francisco Javier García, for the support provided in order to make the Dominican Republic the main tourist destination in the region.
Similarly, construction will generate about ten thousand direct jobs.
After describing the country as “a treasure that we want people to discover and enjoy,” Francisco Javier García stressed that at the end of 2020 the country could receive its largest number of tourists to date.
