Almost $6 billion earned since Jamaica re-opened its borders in June 2020
Jamaica has earned US $5.7 billion since re-opening its borders to tourists in June 2020.
That’s according to the Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett who made the announcement at the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s travel marketplace, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, recently.
He said the phenomenal earnings and arrival figures are a testament to the hard work of the ministry, its public bodies, and many stakeholders and partners.
Noting that tourism is a key driver in the overall economic recovery for Jamaica, Mr. Bartlett said these numbers augur well for the economy, lives, and livelihoods.
The island was one of the first destinations to reopen amidst the global coronavirus pandemic through robust health and safety protocols and world travel and tourism council approved resilient corridors.
