Jamaica’s tourism sector has reported a big and “unprecedented start” to 2019, according to record-breaking arrival figures and earnings.
The country has become the first Caribbean destination to welcome one million visitors during the nine first months of the year.
Tourism generated for Jamaica foreign exchange earnings of approximately US$800 million.
Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism, said that Jamaica continues to make an aggressive push in transforming the way we market the destination and we have been seeing the dividends.
While the March numbers are still preliminary, we are pleased to have achieved this milestone so early in 2019. A big thanks to our various travel partners who have been selling Jamaica and helping us sustain this positive growth, he added.
