President Luis Abinader said that the pandemic had not stopped investments in the country.
“We have broken ground for more than 10 new hotels, among them prestigious international brands such as St Regis in Cap Cana and Hyatt Place in Santo Domingo. At the same time, projects for 2,400 new rooms and more than 14,600 rooms under construction and remodeling have been approved,” he said during the rendering of accounts.
He highlighted the start of the second phase of the Santo Domingo Colonial Zone revitalization project, after four years of stagnation, which the Inter-American Development Bank finances.
“In this same line of promoting all corners of our country, we are also working together with the associations of Santiago de los Caballeros in a plan to remodel its historic center to turn it into a space for culture, art, and entertainment, and we will remodel the downtown San Francisco de Macorís together with the municipality’s development association to improve the quality of life of this thriving city, capital of the Northeast,” he said.
