CHTA PresidentAs of 2017 and the coming years, the Caribbean region’s tourism growth potential is huge, but it’s not without continued collaborative partnerships between the region’s public and private sectors. Karolin Troubetzkoy, President of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) said that 2016 was the year of mixed blessings for the tourism industry for the Caribbean. To quote Karolin, “Last year, you issued a challenge to CHTA, CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organization), and groups like CARICOM (Caribbean Community) to work together to fully realize the potential which tourism holds for our economies and our people,” Troubetzkoy told Prime Minister Christie, who also addressed the gathering this year.


“Prime Minister, I am pleased to tell you that CHTA and CTO have answered your call, and are advancing initiatives which we believe can help make our region and our industry realize its full tourism potential.”

She reported an overall visitor arrival in the Caribbean amid several challenges testing the region’s resilience. 2017 has been chosen by the Caribbean Tourism Organization as the Year of Adventure and the Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development by the UNWTO.


She said that adventure and sustainability well define the appeal of the Caribbean and it needs to be protected, sustained and enhanced. Reflecting on the effect of Hurricane Matthew in few areas of Haiti and The Bahamas, Karolin thanked regional hoteliers for participating in an online auction which yielded US$70,000, $25,000 of which was presented to The Bahamas and $45,000 to Haiti for restoration efforts.
