Bahamas receives US$50,000 for hurricane relief from Global Tourism Resilience centre

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett, in his capacity as co-chair of the Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Centre, on Monday handed over US$50,000 to Director General of the Bahamas Tourism and Aviation Ministry, Joy Jibrilu, at the second meeting of the centre's board of governors in London.
 
The money forms part of the overall relief fund established by the management centre to support tourism-ravaged economies impacted by disruptions such as natural disasters and pandemics.
 
The fund will also go towards the commissioning of a baseline study to assess the vulnerabilities of the Caribbean to major disruptions and building capacity to deal with them.
