Caribbean aims for tourism milestones in 2023

The Caribbean is aiming for tourism milestones in 2023.

The region was among the fastest-recovering regions globally last year as travel returned in earnest following the coronavirus pandemic.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) confirmed that some destinations saw record-breaking tourist numbers last year - with some destinations surpassing pre-Covid levels and others approaching them.

The CTO claim that the area's reputation for hospitality, connectivity and wellness have contributed to its success in recovering from the pandemic.

Neil Walters, acting secretary general of the CTO, said: "The year 2022 and especially the second half of the year has been a

very encouraging one for Caribbean tourism.

"While we are still seeing elements of the effect of the pandemic on international travel, here in the Caribbean, we have noted a much more consistent pattern of travel which is a good indicator of a return to normalcy and a path to 2019 levels."

The CTO hopes to keep the momentum going this year and is aiming to make the Caribbean one of the top five fastest-growing tourism regions on the planet.

In order to achieve this, the group will focus on aspects such as research, product development, human resource development and marketing.

The CTO are also working on attracting direct foreign investment and sustainable funding to support the Caribbean tourism sector.
