JHTA president issues charge to Gov't

Claudia Gardner, Hospitality Jamaica Writer

President of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) Nicola Madden-Greig said her organisation would be asking the Government of Jamaica to make more funds available for marketing the country as a tourism destination and strengthening its infrastructure.

Her comments came during the recently concluded Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX) trade show at the Montego Bay Convention Centre last weekend.

"Not only will the JHTA be lobbying the Government to ensure that more than adequate funds are available for marketing, but also to ensure that we truly fulfil the mandate of using the Tourism Enhancement Fund to drive and build out a world-class tourism industry islandwide," she said.

"This can only be done if the long overdue massive investment in many potential world-class tourism assets is undertaken to produce marquee attractions and drawing cards to increase international visitor arrivals," she added.
