This week, tourism industry to talk about COVID impact at AGM

 Thursday, November 12, 2020 


When the tourism industry is all prepared to welcome its busiest seasons, this year members of the Cayman Islands Tourism Association will be meeting to talk about the way they can stay afloat and re-emerge from the pandemic.

Today, 11 Nov, CITA will organize its annual general meeting and a tourism forum. Here members will think on the impact on COVID-19 on the local industry.

In a press release, the organizers have explained that immediately after the AGM business, a moderated forum with the theme ‘Tourism in the Time of COVID: Survival and Re-emergence’ will be arranged.

The speakers at the meeting were Premier Alden McLaughlin, Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell, Commerce Minister Joseph Hew, and Director of Tourism Rosa Harris.

“In addition to learning more, this is an opportunity for stakeholders to ask questions and exchange perspectives directly with the country’s decision-makers,” outgoing CITA president Theresa Leacock-Broderick said in the release.

“Normally, this time of year the industry is gearing up for high season; this year, members are hunkering down to survive and there are lot of uncertainties. So it’s a significant time to come together and collectively share in a vision of how to survive and how we could re-emerge.”

Since March 2020, Cayman’s borders have remained closed and as some inbound travel is allowed at present, the islands are yet to open to short-stay tourists, as minimum 14-day quarantine is mandatory for all arrivals. In today’s meeting, association members have voted to select representatives for each tourism sector who will act as the board of directors for the impending year. CITA is encouraging members to attend or send a proxy.
