Jamaica earns US$3.1 billion to date from visitor arrivals

Preliminary figures from the Jamaica Tourist Board indicate that Jamaica has earned US$3.1 billion to date. 
 
The data also indicates that from January to October 2019, Jamaica welcomed 3.4 million visitors to the island.
 
Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett said it is very likely that Jamaica will achieve the US$3.7 billion in earnings projected for this year.
 
Mr. Bartlett said this development puts the island on track to surpass the ministry's five-pillar growth strategy, which when proposed in 2016 was projected to result in visitor arrivals increasing to five million in five years and earning US$5 billion.
