To promote tourism, Edmund Bartlett is all set to land in New York

 Tuesday, August 13, 2019

This week, Edmund Bartlett, minister of tourism for the Caribbean island of Jamaica, is all prepared to meet face-to-face with partners at the United Nations to talk about various developments in the sector.


While in New York, he will meet with potential investors at the same time.


In defining the importance of the meetings with these stakeholders, Bartlett said: “The visit to New York is to accomplish a number of things.”


“Among them is my meeting with the United Nations’ division of partners to discuss the relationship with the Global Tourism Resilience & Crisis Management Centre and our strategic development, particularly in areas of climate change and seismic disruptions.”


The centre is committed in assisting with preparedness, management and recovery from disturbances that affect tourism and intimidates economies and livelihoods.


The president of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, this week accepted an invitation to be honorary co-chairs representing Africa.


“I will also be having a series of discussions with potential investors in the area of shopping to look at the building out of mega shopping facilities in Jamaica.”


“One of these discussions will be with one of the largest developers of shopping malls in the United States and there is strong interest in building out such a facility in Montego Bay,” Bartlett added.


While staying in New York, Bartlett will talk to the Jamaica Independence black tie gala as well.


The gala, which is hosted by the Jamaica Independence Gala Society, is a yearly event for celebrants from the business, ecumenical and organizational communities to celebrate the island’s independence.
