The region is set to benefit from the $4.2 trillion global wellness economy.
That's the word from Co-organiser of the Caribbean Health & Wellness Tourism Conference and Expo, Sharon Parris-Chambers who was commenting on data outlined in the most recent Global Wellness Economy Monitor, which was presented during the Global Wellness Summit staged in Italy in October.
According to the publication, the Global Wellness Economy grew from $3.7 trillion to $4.2 trillion, between 2015 and 2017.
That economy, encompasses industries that enable consumers to incorporate wellness activities and lifestyles into their daily lives that lead to a state of holistic health.
She says the Caribbean, historically has always met this criterion and, with a more cohesive approach, stands to gain much more in terms of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth.
