Edmund Bartlett seeking Spanish aid

Published on : Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Edmund BartlettTourism’s capacity of retaining facts and impressions is not quite realized by the people associated with the sector, arousing apprehension to Edmund Bartlett, the minister of tourism of the island. Bartlett in the last two weeks explained that, regardless of the growth of the sector at the macro level, and the categorization of different Caribbean nations as middle-income countries, majority of the population still remains susceptible as maximum people are not getting the benefit at large.

On Sunday evening at a reception party for Spain’s Secretary of State, Fernando Garcia Casas hosted at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, St James, Bartlett expressed his discomfort yet another time.

Garcia was one of 328 passengers on board the opening Evelop non-stop flight out of Madrid, Spain.

Even though Spain remained the second largest tourism investors in the country, it took almost nine years to close this deal which introduced non-stop flight services from Spain. At the same time, Bartlett noticed that there was an urgency to create the retentive capacity via manufacturing, agriculture, construction and agro-processing.

Bartlett informed Garcia that he was looking for his assistance to turn this into reality, along with the help of Tourism Linkages Network so that Jamaicans can profit. To quote him, “Distribution and retention are serious issues that we grapple with and we must embrace sustainable development as a way of creating a more inclusive sector.”

Garcia said, “We are reliable partners of the Caribbean, and one of the reasons I am here is to see how we can develop cooperation in culture.”
