he Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) has declared that it is ready to endorse the global conference of the United Nations World Tourism Organization that would be hosted in Jamaica in November.
Adam Goldstein who is the executive committee chairman, current president and chief operating officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises had given the endorsement to Edmund Bartlett, the tourism minister of Jamaica in a private meeting between CEOs of FCCA and presidents of FCCA on 25th October in Merida, Mexico.
In the meeting the group had also discussed strategies to drive year-round traffic to the region and the creation of more employment opportunities and development of strategic partnerships.
Bartlett had applauded the endorsement which he observed actually strengthens the expected impact the conference would be having on the development of tourism industries across the globe.
Bartlett mentioned in a written release that the event would probably be the single most significant conference in the history of the nation.
He feels that this endorsement by FCCA would go a long way in strengthening their efforts to coordinate an international road map fostering collaborative relationships for more inclusive economic and social development for nations across the globe through tourism.
The Global Conference on Jobs and Inclusive Growth: Partnerships for Sustainable Tourism of UNWTO would be held between 27th and 29th November at the Montego Bay Convention Centre and is slated to draw a large number of international and regional participants.
