BahamaHost graduatesOn this Tuesday evening, more than four hundred BahamaHost graduates got their certification. After this, they become official tourism ambassadors for the Bahamas.

Travis Robinson, parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, applauded the graduates on this and greeted them in being part of the thousands of other certified BahamaHost graduate team across the country.

To quote Travis, “Graduates, do not take your certification for granted,” he defined tourism as the “bread and butter” of the country. To quote him, “We are getting ready… to return to number one (as a tourism destination) where we should be.” Mr Robinson delivered this while addressing to the guests attending the graduation ceremony at Calvary Temple Church in Freeport.

415 public service drivers, immigration officers, and other professionals are part of the graduating group.

“Every single one of these graduates has joined the fold of thousands of BahamaHost graduates in the country; you have taken up the mantle to be ambassadors for us. To be our partners in the Straw Market, hotels, hospital, ports, and at the fish fry – you are our brand; they see you. But in seeing you, you got to be ready to deliver quality customer service,” he said.

He further mentioned that the Bahamas was the number one tourism destination at one point of time. The country has survived off the tourism industry for the past 44 years, he confirmed.

“We as a country and as a nation used to be number one. Graduates, today I am hopeful because more and more persons are understanding the importance of what we call our “bread and butter”. “They say we need to diversify our economy, but we need to diversify tourism first. We need to master what we have – that is customer service,” said Mr. Robinson.
