Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia says that DR tourism experienced a growth of 7.7% at the close of November 2014. He attributed the increase to cooperation between public and private sectors. He said that 2015 would be an even better year, with a forecast growth rate of more than 10%.
Garcia said that the number of arrivals broke records in almost every month of the year, adding that hotels purchased more than US$500 million from local farm and agribusiness producers.
Garcia said that Central Bank statistics show that travel increased 9.3% in November 2014 compared to the same month in 2013. A total of 33,293 more visitors arrived, for a total of 392,283 in November 2014.
From January to November 2014, 4,607,047 tourists visited, which is 407,296 more than in the previous year, for a 7.7% increase.
Garcia said that 2015 would be an even better year because the right conditions are in place. He mentioned that the country would benefit from major agreements the Ministry of Tourism has signed during international travel markets abroad.
He said the country is on firm track to reach the 10-million tourist goal, as stated by President Danilo Medina when he took office in 2012.
