Tourism Month Blasts into Action in St. Kitts

BASSETERRE (2nd November, 2017): Motorcade, student fieldtrips, heritage walk, karoke and photo competitions; These are just some of the exciting activities of the 2017 Tourism Awareness Month, in November.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Carlene Henry-Morton, launched the month of activities on Wednesday, and revealed the theme: “Enhancing Our Nation’s Prosperity by Nurturing Tourism Sustainability.”

“Throughout this month a variety of events and activities will highlight the fact that the tourism sector is vitally important to our country and that we all need to better understand, support, and protect tourism as one of the key drivers of our economy,” Morton said. “Indeed, it is important that we strive to protect all that is good about our island. That is why the team at the Ministry of Tourism and the St. Kitts Tourism Authority is committed in providing a consistently outstanding visitor experience through the sustainable development of our human, natural and cultural resources in order to maximize opportunity, prosperity and quality of life for present and future generations.”

Morton said her team has a pro-people approach to tourism sector development, which is intended to translate into youth inclusion and capacity building; entrepreneurship and employment. Therefore, citizens are empowered and equipped to deliver a quality, authentic and uniquely Kittitian experience, that will add value and differentiate us from other destinations.
