The World Bank collaborates with Jamaica & UNWTO for global tourism conference

Published on : Thursday, March 9, 2017

World Bank GroupJamaica’s Minister of Tourism Hon. Edmund Bartlett yesterday announced that the World Bank has agreed to partner with Jamaica and the UNWTO for holding the Global Conference on Building Partnerships for Sustainable Tourism for Development. The conference will be held from November 27 to 29 at the St. James Montego Bay Convention Center.

 
Dr. Taleb Rifai UNWTO Secretary General introduced the new partner at the first press briefing for global media, which was jointly held by the ministry and the UNWTO in Germany yesterday. While addressing the gathering, Minister Bartlett said that he believes that the global tourism conference has now been set on a new and interesting path with the addition of such a major partner. To quote the minister, “The inclusion of the World Bank as a partner will be a ‘game-changer’ in terms of how the conference is positioned.

 

It will go way beyond the limits of a technical conference, but will be transactional and business oriented. The addition of the World Bank will provide a grand opportunity for international funders of tourism to meet with ministers as well as private and public sector entities that have development projects and are able to access funding through these entities.

 

So Jamaica will be the destination where many of these major sustainable tourism development transactions will actually take place.” This conference is of great historical importance.
