Edmund BartlettEdmund Bartlett, the Minister of Tourism recently said that more Jamaicans need to contribute to tourism. This is essential so that Jamaica and its people can profit from the increase in earnings from the tourism industry followed by retention of that.


While discussing at the third staging of the Tourism Linkages Network’s ‘Christmas in July’ event organized at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, Bartlett highlighted that his Ministry is trying its best to move forward the Linkages initiative in order to handle the leakages efficiently by cheering and helping for higher production of local goods and products and launching direct networking opportunities in terms of local producers.

“The strong linkages established today between producers and buyers are important to our economic development. As it is the world over, micro, small and medium tourism enterprises are vital because 80 per cent of global tourism is driven by them. If we are to seriously talk about retaining the revenue from tourism then we have to build out the capacity of this 80 per cent to drive more creative output and be able to deliver on the demand that tourism brings,” said Minister Bartlett.

The Minister consequently praised the event organizers for their successful effort of bringing 120 local producers with genuine gifts and mementos, to display their products to the corporate executives and industry players worldwide.

Products which were put on show majorly comprised traditional souvenirs of all kinds, like corporate, home and decorative accessories; desktop solutions; etc.
