PM Calls For Deepening Ties Between The Caribbean And Africa

Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, has called for deepening tourism and trade integration between the Caribbean and the African continent.

In a recent address at the opening ceremony for the Global Tourism Resilience Conference 2023 at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona Campus, Mr. Holness argued that African and Caribbean tourism trade presents opportunities for both regions to achieve shared economic growth, create jobs, increase bilateral investments, and improve infrastructure.

He added that the model will also enable the exchange of best practices, sharing experiences, and identifying new opportunities for growth and development.

“From a long-term perspective, a robust tourism trade model has the advantage of providing a cushion against economic shocks and crises. For example, the prevailing evidence indicates that while the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devasting impact on the global economy, including the tourism industry, countries that have diversified their tourism markets and have established strong tourism trade relations have been better able to withstand the impact of the crisis,” the Prime Minister noted.

Mr. Holness said the conference provides an excellent opportunity to explore and engage critical challenges to enhance the competitiveness and sustainability of African and Caribbean tourism by fostering cross-sectoral collaborations, knowledge sharing, and partnerships.
