Minister Bartlett Welcomes Resilience Conference to Jamaica
Jamaica tourism minister, Edmund Bartlett, has announced the country will host a resilience summit with key global stakeholders and thought leaders on September 13th at the University of the West Indies, Mona. The date was selected to commemorate hurricanes Irma and Maria, two of the most devastating weather systems to have affected the region. “This summit forms part of my ministry’s efforts to build resilience within the region and globally. “Resilience building has become even more crucial in a world that is hyper connected and as such more susceptible to climate change, epidemics and pandemics, terrorism and cybercrime,” Bartlett said. The resilience summit, to be held under the theme ‘Tourism Resilience through Global Synergies’, will seek to assess existing and emerging disruptions related to tourism management globally; examine the risk of these disruptions to the global tourism product; and identify a synergetic strategic and operational framework for mutual partnerships between and among major governmental, non-governmental and business entities to address as well as develop mitigation strategies for these global disruptions.
