Tourism Minister, Edmund Bartlett, says major hotel brands in Israel have expressed interest in investing in Jamaica and are expected to visit the island soon.
The Minister says the investors have accepted his invitation to visit Jamaica.
They should be in attendance at the upcoming Jamaica Rum Festival.
The Minister is currently in Israel to participate in the Annual International Mediterranean Tourism Market event.
And with the country's hotel room stock projected to reach 48 thousand by 2022, local food distributor, Caribbean Producers Jamaica (CPJ), is pledging to ensure that the hospitality sector will always be adequately supplied.
The company's founder and co-chairman, Tom Tyler, gave the pledge as he addressed the official opening of CPJ's US$10-million distribution Centre in Freeport, Montego Bay, on Tuesday.
He said the building is a realisation of the vision to formalise distribution to Jamaica's fast-growing hotel industry.
