3,000 hotel rooms for Dominican Republic’s most neglected region
Santo Domingo.- The Academy of Sciences of the Dominican Republic yesterday offered its support for the construction of a hotel project to develop tourism in Pedernales, announced last weekend by President Luis Abinader during a visit to that southwestern Province.
“It has been a decision that has pleased us a lot. For many years the Academy of Sciences has been advocating for Pedernales not to be lost in oblivion, and we have seen with great satisfaction that determination of the president,” Academy of Sciences president Luis Scheker Ortiz told Diario Libre.
“Pedernales is one of the most neglected provinces and has extraordinary tourist potential, so we feel very satisfied and we are always in the best position to support this government, interested so far in rescuing these parts of the country that they have been abandoned,” added Scheker.
According to Abinader, construction will begin as soon as possible and will be in a month when the pre-design of the works that will be part of the master plan for the tourist development of the area will be ready, which includes, among other projects, the construction of 3,000 hotel rooms.
