Published on : Saturday, October 28, 2017

UNWTOThe Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association has endorsed the UNWTO global conference to be held in Jamaica next month.
FCCA chairman Adam Goldstein, president and COO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., gave the approval to Jamaica Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett during a private meeting between presidents and CEOs of FCCA member lines and ministers of tourism this week in Mérida, Mexico.
Strategies involving driving year-round traffic to the region, the creation of more employment opportunities and the development of strategic partnerships were also discussed at the meeting.
Bartlett welcomed the endorsement and said that it would strengthen the expected impact the conference will have on the development of tourism across the globe.
Bartlett said, “This event will perhaps be the single most important conference in our country’s history. This endorsement by FCCA strengthens our efforts to coordinate an international road map which will foster collaborative relationships for more inclusive economic and social development of countries across the world via tourism.”
He added, “Caribbean states are very dependent on tourism to sustain their economies. So, with the assistance of the UNWTO, CHTA (Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association), CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organization) and WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council), as well as ministers of the region, we are working on creating a strategy to strengthen the sector’s resilience to the effects of climate change and natural disasters, thus making it more sustainable. We will unveil this plan of action during our upcoming UNWTO global conference in Montego Bay in November.”
The conference would be held on Nov. 27-29 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James, and is expected to attract hundreds of international and local participants.
