The National Hotels and Restaurants Association (ASONAHORES) praised the Government’s decision to solve the conflict regarding the construction of a wind energy park in Punta Cana (east), looking for a suitable place for that project and which doesn’t affect tourism development.
ASONAHORES president Luis Lopez said yesterday that he met with Tourism minister Felix JimÃ©nez, and the executive vice-president of the Dominican energy czar RadhamÃ©s Segura, and it was agreed, as Tourism had proposed and his entity demanded, to relocate the project where it doesn’t affect the zone’s tourism expansion.
The place originally selected by the Punta Cana-Macao energy group (CEPEM), is in an area zoned for tourism resorts, created by decree in 1986, and for which ASONAHORES had demanded adherence.
