Estrategia de competitividad turística de la República Dominicana

Tourism is the most important economic activity in the Dominican Republic and quite well could – as it has been the successful experience of other touristic destinations – expand its positive effects towards higher equality in income distribution and also to reduce the levels of poverty.

The model’s general strategy to move towards a new phase of competitive and sustained tourism development is outlined in the National Systemic Competitiveness Plan of the Dominican Republic (PNCS-RD), which was presented by the President Dr. Leonel Fernández on March 21st 2007.
