There is no plural referent for 'those' in the previous clause. To use 'those' you need a 'tourism industries' and that is not avaiable
chetan2u what are your thoughts?
I understand that you need "industries" as you're speaking about multiple countries industries, but also grammatically it is not present

Not an expert , but here is my take on this.

It has more to do with the countries mentioned than with the tourism industry.
If it were one country say Cuba , then the comparison would have been that of cuba
now since we are comparing the tourism industry of Dominican Republic with tourism industries of multiple countries
"Those" imo is correct.

Therefore,

Totally agree with you, "those" is wrong, you can fix the question adding "that"
