Jamaica, Spain Sign MOU on Tourism
Jamaica minister of tourism, Edmund Bartlett, has signed a memorandum of understanding with his Spanish counterpart as the Caribbean destination continues to rebuild its hospitality sector.
Reyes Maroto, Spain's minister of industry, trade, and tourism, was on hand to complete the deal during the FITUR trade show in Madrid. The pair agreed to collaborate on various aspects of tourism development and economic transformation.
Bartlett also used the opportunity to invite minister Morato to the first ever Global Tourism Resilience Day, scheduled for February 17th at Expo 2020 in Dubai.
The day will focus on the ability of countries to build capacity to respond to international and global shocks and be able to predict with greater certainty their responses.
It will also aid countries in understanding and mitigating the effects of these shocks on their development, but most importantly, it will help them manage and recover quickly after these shocks.
