Karolin Troubetzkoy, the President of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) said that under the stewardship of the WTTC, CHTA has joined forces with around dozen regional and national travel organizations to advocate for the sector among governments, legislators and economists.

 
The National Travel Association Coalition (NTAC), which comprises travel associations from Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Egypt, Europe, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States, provides a forum for national travel associations to support each other and ensure sustainable growth of travel and tourism. CHTA and its regional public sector partner, the Caribbean Tourism Organization, are both founding members of NTAC.

 
The CHTA president said the coalition is considering centralized funding and collaboration on similar projects for improving cost efficiency, as well as the benefit of jointly seeking other sources of support.

 
Tourism being one of the world’s largest economic sectors, contributes more than 10 percent to global GDP. The industry now supports one in 10 jobs in the world, according to the WTTC. Its impact on the Caribbean is even greater.
