Edmund Bartlett wishes to appoint unpaid tourismHon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica, says that he will appoint many of Jamaica’s honorary consuls in Europe as unpaid tourism advisors for his office. This move will be for boosting the market share of Jamaica for the European tourists. He made the announcement after meetings with Jamaica’s honorary consuls in Europe: Jorn Follmer (Munich, Germany); Mirko Miljus (Serbia); Chetwynd R.F. Bowling (Russia); Peter-Joachim Schoenberg (Hamburg, Germany); and, Dr Marian Valko (Bratislava, Slovakia) at Jamaica’s Embassy in Berlin, Germany. Jamaica’s Ambassador to Germany Margaret Jobson was also part of the meeting.

To quote minister Bartlett, “Among the roles of the tourism advisors, most of whom reside in cities and countries where Jamaica has little or no presence, is to work closely with the Jamaica Tourist Board and the Ministry of Tourism in marketing the destination, attracting investments for the sector, assist in coordinating increased airlift arrangements from several European destinations into Jamaica, and be the point of contact for all government-related tourism activities in their respective countries and cities.”

Minister Bartlett recently took part in the prestigious tourism show ITB Berlin and the International Hotel Investment Forum. He also took part in press meets for boosting the UNWTO’s historic Global Conference on Building Partnerships for Sustainable Tourism for Development, to be hosted by Jamaica on November 27-29, 2017, at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.
