The Reserve Bank will promote tourism investment in the country in Fitur 2022, together with the celebration of a series of cultural activities that will project Dominican artistic diversity, within the framework of this important international fair to be held in Madrid, Spain, from 19 to 23 this month .
The general administrator of the financial institution, Samuel Pereyra, will chair a business delegation, which will develop a broad agenda in Madrid, which includes meetings with tour operators, investors and executives from major hotel chains, as well as project developers linked to the broad chain of tourism value.
Part of that agenda will take place both at the Ifema venue, where Fitur is held, and at other venues in the Spanish capital. This year the Dominican Republic will participate as a Partner Country, a distinction that it also held in 2019.
Within the broad program to be deployed, Banreservas and the Dominican embassy in Spain will inaugurate at the Santo Domingo station of the Madrid Metro, a mural entitled “Dominican Republic, Reserved for You.”
The work will be designed by the artist Wanda Cortorreal, resident in Santo Domingo, who will be accompanied in its execution by the Dominican artist based in Spain, Gerson Rodríguez.
In addition, on Thursday 20 and also in collaboration with the embassy, the Plaza de Cibeles will be illuminated with the colors of the Dominican Republic flag.
While the business cocktail that Banreservas traditionally celebrates within the framework of FITUR will be set with images of the works of the Petromacorisano artist Paul Guidicelli, to whom this activity will be dedicated to commemorate the centenary of his birth. This artistic selection will be made in collaboration with the Bellapart Museum.
In total, FITUR will bring together around 100 countries with 70 official representations, led by the Dominican Republic, which this year is the FITUR Partner Country, the organizers specify.
