Tourism and businessmen from Santiago plan an investment of more than 400 million pesos

Santo Domingo.- The Minister of Tourism, David Collado, has reached an agreement with the business sector in Santiago to invest over 400 million pesos in promoting tourism in the province. The meeting, led by the organization Compromiso Santiago and attended by representatives from various economic sectors such as the airport, hotels, restaurants, commerce, clinics, and travel agencies, focused on identifying key areas that need attention in order to position Santiago as one of the country’s main tourist destinations.

Collado explained that the initial investments will be directed towards the creation of the City of Santiago Brand, a project to be coordinated and executed by the private sector. Another priority is the intervention and improvement of the Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration, one of the province’s main tourist attractions. “We are committed to the tourism development of Santiago. That’s why we took Santiago to the Anato Fair in Colombia, and that’s why we want to make the necessary investments in partnership with the private sector to promote the city’s brand and increase tourist arrivals to the area,” stated Collado during the meeting.

The meeting was coordinated by businessman Manuel Estrella and attended by prominent figures such as Ricardo Founder from Compromiso Santiago, Carlos Iglesias from the Chamber of Commerce and Production of Santiago, Sandy Filpo from the Association of Merchants and Industrialists, Ramón Paulino from the Santiago Tourism Cluster, and Fernando Capellán, Augusto Reyes, Edmundo Aja, among other business leaders.

In addition to the investments, the meeting outlined the necessary guidelines for developing a tourism strategy for Santiago de los Caballeros based on four fundamental pillars to be defined by the private sector.

Manuel Estrella expressed gratitude to Minister Collado for the opportunity to collaborate with the private sector in driving tourism and development initiatives. He highlighted the importance of seizing this opportunity to promote the city.

Ricardo Founder emphasized that as part of the Santiago Commitment, the agreed-upon plans will be implemented with monthly follow-ups to ensure the successful relaunch of tourism in Santiago.
