The president highlighted the social and economic impact that Punta Bergantín will have for the country to continue catapulting tourism and become a preferred destination for tourism linked to the international film industry.

“There is great enthusiasm for investment, to create new jobs, Miches is in the process of designing and building some three thousand rooms, imagine what each room means 1.4 jobs and each direct job is 3 indirect jobs, those are jobs for Miches , jobs for El Seibo, this is how we are promoting the Punta Bergantín project in Puerto Plata, developing more jobs for the region; What we are looking for here is economic and social development and creating employment for our people”, he said.

In his participation in the Caribbean Hotel Investment Conference & Operations Summit (CHICOS), the president affirmed that the legal certainty offered by the country is also one of the elements for which many investors place all their trust in the Dominican Republic when to invest.

He also affirmed that the promotion of a permanent collaboration between the State and the productive and economic sectors of the country, through the public-private alliance, is of vital importance for growth and development.

He considered that these alliances are being able to assume many of the plans and projects of the Dominican State that had been stagnant for years for different reasons for their execution.

Abinader offered the information when being interviewed by Moisés González from the digital newspaper Despertar Nacional.
