Dominican economy stopped receiving more than US $ 700 million due to the closure of tourism in Punta Cana
  • Between March, April and May the Dominican Republic stopped receiving 600,000 tourists
The businessman Frank Rainieri, president of the Puntacana Group, said that between the months of March, April and May the Dominican Republic stopped receiving 600,000 tourists.

He explained that if it is calculated at US $ 1,200 per tourist as indicated by the Central Bank, the country stopped receiving more than US $ 700 million to date.

"If you calculate that for Punta Cana International Airport ... between March, April and May we have stopped receiving in those three months about 600,000 tourists, if you calculate the average that the Central Bank says of US $ 1,200 per tourist, it wants say that the Dominican economy in Punta Cana alone has stopped receiving more than US $ 700 million dollars so far in March to date, "he explained.

He said that the reopening of the sector will depend on the attitude that Dominicans have, starting with the State on the industry.

Why am I saying this? Because if we are the last to get on the train, it is possible that the train has left us, "Rainieri said, noting that other markets have already opened and others already have a reopening date.

The businessman Frank Rainieri, president of the Puntacana Group, spoke this Tuesday in the VI Virtual Conversation of the Dominican Association of Tourist Press (Adompretur): "Current situation and challenges of Dominican tourism."
