UNWTO pledges support for Global Tourism Resilience Centre in Jamaica

Tourism Minister Ed Bartlett says newly-appointed Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Zurab Pololikashvili has pledged his full support for the establishment of the first Global Tourism Resilience Centre in Jamaica.
 
The centre, which was first announced during the recently concluded UNWTO Global Conference at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James, will be tasked with creating, producing and generating toolkits, guidelines and policies to handle the recovery process.
 
It will also include a Sustainable Tourism Observatory, which will assist preparedness, management and recovery of crises which impact tourism and threaten economies and livelihoods.
