    They are already working in the project at Maimon...

    Not only that, but the first ship is expected to arrive in December 2013...

    But that's not even the only or cruise ship for port to be under construction in the DR already!

    The group behind the San Souci project already finalized the move of the Dominican Armada (former Marina de Guerra) to their new location and work already started on that port facility...
















    That's apart from also a new cruise ships port for Samana!



    5 new marinas for the regular folk with added 2 new ones being municipal and open to the public in general!

    As someone else who believes what they see, I hope all goes well with the project.
    I really really hope this project gets done! I am just sour on all projects since Atlantica(the work had already started there as well). My comment is based on nothing but my own speculation and was meant to be funny, at least in my own mind.

    And Pichardos pics are starting to make me nauseous, the scrolling necessary to get to the next post is enough to give one an epileptic seizure. Although of course I wish that the new PLD Administration is better than the last.

    well, in some instances, the government can demand concessions from the MNE, in terms of certain basic expectations, such as hiring practices. although the DR government dropped the ball by not putting up at least a part of the funding, it could always demand of the operators to conduct business in such a way as to benefit locals, to a degree. if the operators became obdurate, then the government could tell them to take the ships elsewhere. it is not as though there are going to be great benefits to the local economy , given the current enclave format.
