Leaders of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association predict the Caribbean region will emerge stronger than ever and use lessons learned to make the region even more desirable once the COVID-19 crisis is past.
The organization has urged its stakeholders to take advantage of coronavirus resources it has set up to contain the spread of the virus in the region, and reminded the world of the Caribbean tourism sector’s proven ability to strongly bounce back from adversity.
In a joint statement, CEO and Director General Frank Comito and President Patricia Affonso-Dass reminded the public that the Caribbean tourism sector has considerable experience in managing disruptions and risks.
“We demonstrated this post 9-11, through SARS, Zika, hurricanes and other natural disasters over the past two decades, all while experiencing unprecedented growth,” the statement said.
