The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) has signed an agreement with hoteliers and tourism partners in the Dominican Republic

As a part of a new agreement, a tourism information Centre is being developed by the National Association of Hotels and Restaurants in the Dominican Republic (ASONAHORES) to share research on country’s tourism’s economic impact and activity with CHTA and its members.

The partnership also allows ASONAHORES to access reports from CHTA’s data partners, including STR, MasterCard, KPMG, ADARA, Travelzoo, the Caribbean Tourism Organization, the American Resort Development Association and the World Travel and Tourism Council.

CHTA will arrange in-country workshops and presentations for ASONAHORES’ members to review data and reports and to provide them with deeper insights and tools useful for destination, organization and property planning.

In a bid to further utilize the potential of the region to develop health and medical sector, CHTA and ASONAHORES agreed on a strategy for the development of medical tourism in the region.

The information sharing will strengthen ASONAHORES’ advocacy efforts with both the Dominican government and the business community.
