The general administrator of the Banco de Reservas, Samuel Pereyra, highlighted that the active portfolio for tourism exceeded RD$35,868 million during 2022, with financing approvals of US$172 million for projects in this sector.

He said that RD$8,954 million were also disbursed for the hotel sector and financing of more than US$400 million was approved for working capital and development of tourism projects.

“All these investments have been necessary and are part of Banco de Reservas’ commitment to the development of the Dominican Republic,” Pereyra reiterated when speaking at the inauguration of the photographic exhibition organized by the Bank “Wealth in the Dominican Republic,” of the prominent lens artist, Eladio Fernández.

Pereyra revealed that Banreservas is evaluating new investments for an amount greater than USD$1.5 billion to guarantee the continued growth of tourism in the country. These resources will be used for the construction of new hotel projects.

Accompanied by a delegation of business executives from the entity, Pereyra will hold more than 30 business meetings with tourism investors who attend ITB Berlin, in order to attract and capture foreign investment for the sector for the benefit of the country.

He explained that the objective of these meetings is to ensure that businessmen and hotel chain owners feel attracted by the investment climate and natural beauties, so that they consider investing in the different tourist poles of the Dominican Republic.
