El ministro de Turismo de Jamaica pide inversiones continuas en turismo

Escrito por editor

Jamaica Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says tourism has to be sustained and this requires ongoing investment to improve existing products and develop new ones.

The Minister made this statement yesterday, during the official opening of the 2019 Caribbean Travel Marketplace at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.

“The future growth of the region is through tourism, the fastest growing industry in the world. But it is not good enough that 80 percent of world tourism comprises small enterprises who receive only 20 percent on return.

Our financial institutions and our investors have a role to play in all this. They must see tourism as a viable investment and be more flexible in their loan portfolio for investment in the industry. Tourism has to be sustained and this requires ongoing investment to improve existing products and develop new ones,” said Minister Bartlett.

He also shared that critical to these investments is human capital development, which his Ministry has placed as a major priority.

“Investment in people is also a must. Our tourism workers must be trained to be professionals at what they do; whether they are Bell Hops, Scullions, Room Attendants or people in management. There is no room for mediocrity in 21st century tourism with a highly demanding clientele,” he said.

“We are extremely pleased to have this opportunity, as host of Caribbean Travel Marketplace, to showcase the many wonderful natural, social, economic and cultural resources that Jamaica has to offer.

“We must use opportunities such as that presented by Caribbean Travel Marketplace, to sell collectively to the rest of the world, the uniqueness of our mixed culture, the friendliness and welcoming spirit of our people, the delight of our Caribbean cuisine, the excitement of our attractions and, beyond question, the unmatched beauty of our respective islands,” said the Minister.

Dignitaries and travel buyers attending this year’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace represent the nations of: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, India, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Poland, Puerto Rico, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
