Travel up 4.3% in April
The Central Bank tourism statistics department says that 16,783 more tourists visited the country in April 2015 compared to the same month in 2014, or 4.3% more. The Central Bank projects the increase in travel to reach 5% by the end of 2015.
Travel to the Dominican Republic has been affected by a drop in Russian travel caused by the country's economic problems. The Central Bank says that Dominicans filled up hotel rooms because this year the peak domestic travel week, Easter Week, fell on 29 March to 5 April, which is still a peak international travel period.
The total number of non-resident travelers for April 2015 was 461,962. From January to April, 1,961,364 tourists visited the country, for a 6.5% growth or 119,689 more travelers this year compared to 2014. The total includes 92,660 foreign tourists and 27,029 non-resident Dominicans.
The Central Bank attributes the good figures to the brighter growth prospects in the United States, which is the main source market for tourists to the Dominican Republic, and to the campaigns implemented by the Ministry of Tourism and the private sector to attract tourists and consolidate the country's leading position in the Caribbean.
Expo Mango from 11 to 14 June 2015
It's the time to head west to the Central Park in the southwestern city of Bani and choose from a vast selection of mangos. Take note there are over 200 varieties. Expo Mango is held in Bani every year so that producers can showcase the latest advances and promote the consumption of this delicious summer fruit. Upon making the announcement of the event that is organized by the Mango Cluster, Minister of Agriculture Angel Estevez said that mango exports generated US$17 million last year. He said that the quality of the Dominican mango has made it a country brand.
Estevez says that there is potential to increase mango production by 1,000% and that of 2.5 million boxes of mangos that are exported, there is local capacity to export 25 million providing weather conditions are favorable.

New Casa de Campo access road honors King Juan Carlos I
Casa de Campo has named the new entry to the La Romana resort after His Majesty Juan Carlos I, Emeritus King of Spain. The King Juan Carlos I Avenue leads into the property providing direct access from the La Romana Casa de Campo International Airport.
The King was in La Romana last week for the 13th Parents and Children meeting of wealthy Latin American families at Casa de Campo. The event focused on generational transitions.
The formal inauguration of the new road was held to coincide with his visit. The King was staying at Casa Grande as the guest of his longtime friend, Jose (Pepe) Fanjul, the main shareholder of Casa de Campo.
President Danilo Medina and King Juan Carlos I led the ribbon-cutting ceremony, which was also attended by brothers Alfy and Pepe Fanjul, Ramon A. Menendez, Gustavo Cisneros, Felipe Vicini, the Minister of the Presidency Gustavo Montalvo and Administrative Minister of the Presidency Jose Ramon Peralta.
Although the new access road was open during the Parents and Children event, the date for its general use by property owners and guests is yet to be announced. The initial plan is to open it for use with automatic entry permits while the other facilities are being completed.
The Parents and Children Organization was founded by a large group of businesspeople from the Spanish-speaking world, including Pepe Fanjul, Carlos Slim and Gustavo Cisneros. The hosts of the Dominican Republic meeting included the Corripio and Vicini families.
