wttcMinister of Tourism for Jamaica, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, announced that the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is to collaborate with the Government of Jamaica for hosting an event jointly sponsored by the UNWTO, Government of Jamaica, and World Bank Group Conference on “Jobs & Inclusive Growth: Partnerships for Sustainable Tourism,” being held in November at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St. James.

Bartlett met with the WTTC’s Senior Vice President of Government and Industry Affairs, Helen Marano in London, who expressed his strong support for the historic conference.


This is in tandem with global support for the conference from major international institutions like the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank.

According to Minister Bartlett, “At the end of the conference, there will be the compilation of the Draft Montego Bay Declaration. From this will flow an action plan for tourism destinations to follow, as well as the publication of the second volume of the UNWTO Global Report on Public Private Partnerships.”

November’s global conference will also seek to identify successful models and future partnership initiatives that will contribute towards the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the publication of the second UNWTO Affiliate Members Global Report on Public-Private-Partnerships.
