Cuba and Dominican Republic to launch joint tourist project
Dominican Republic´s Tourism minister Francisco Javier said in the capital Santo Domingo that his country will jointly develop with Cuba a multi-destination project to bring a larger number of Chinese tourists.
The official made the announcement during the first China-Dominican Republic Cooperation Forum, underway in Punta Cana, a tourist center in the eastern Dominican province of La Altagracia.
Minister Javier said that Cuban authorities are interested in jointly operating a multi-destination with his country for the Chinese market and they also want all Chinese tourists that visit Cuba also tour the Dominican Republic.
Air China announced the opening of the Beijing-Havana route for late December with three weekly flights and this is good news for the joint multi-destination project, said the official.
Chinese tourists are eager to visit new places as estimates say that more than 100 million of them tour different destinations around the world, according to the Dominican Ministry of Economy, Planning and Development, one of the organizers of the forum.
