Guatemala: Interest in Petén Aerodrome

With the condition that there be an incentive law for investment in tourism infrastructure, a Dominican entrepreneur could be interested in investing in the Mundo Maya airport.

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

The entrepreneur from the tourism industry and founder of the Punta Cana group, Frank Rainieri, visited several Guatemalan tourist sites with the intention of identifying investment opportunities, finally showing interest in a possible concession of the aerodrome located in the municipality of Flores, Petén. 

After the businessman visited Antigua Guatemala, Retalhuleu, Izabal and Petén, the director of the Guatemalan Tourism Institute (Inguat), Jorge Mario Chajón, explained to that Rainieri " ..." he opted for this because if he makes a investment in Guatemala he would make it in Petén, he sees great potential in the Mayan culture.'"

In relation to the formulation of a law of incentives to invest in the tourism sector, the director of Inguat explained that " ... there is a work team made up of the Ministry of Finance, of the Economy, of the Superintendence of Tax Administration, of the Congress Tourism Commission and Inguat to present a bill in June."
