Smaller Hotels Will Benefit From Reduced Taxes And Airfares, says PM Mitchell

By Jermine Abel

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell is once again raising the alarm over the continued challenge facing the region when it comes to taxes and intraregional travel.

The prime minister pointed to hotels and governments both benefiting from decreased taxes on airline tickets.

Dr. Mitchell was at the time speaking at the just concluded Virtual Regional Security Conference.

The prime minister suggests that hotels should also seek to work with intraregional travelers and drop the taxes to accommodate them in light of the fact that international travel is currently struggling.

He spoke to the benefits of travel and the Caribbean Single Market and Economy.
