Regional tourism showing positive numbers

by Staff reporter
St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): President of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Authority (CHTA), Nicola Madden-Greig, revealed that the region continues to see an uptick in the tourism sector following the COVID-19 pandemic, contributing significantly to the region’s gross domestic product.

Speaking during the opening of the CHTA’s Marketplace in Jamaica, Madden-Greig confirmed that the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, and Jamaica were the larger territories leading the growth within the region.

Canada, the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean were the major source markets for arrivals, despite a decline from several of those areas. The president confirmed that the region has seen a three percent growth in tourism.

Meanwhile, for 2024, there is a sense of optimism for further growth within the region.

CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, Ellison Thompson, is currently present at the CHTA Marketplace, which brings together stakeholders from around the world and international media to discuss the state of the industry within the region.
