Tourism is God’s Blessing to Barbados
Barbadian tourism survived financial depressions, global wars and medical crises plus a Britain’s APD tax and Brexit – luck nor skill had anything to do with it rather it is divine intervention, according to a tourism official.
The BHTA, in their final quarterly meeting for 2016 at Two Mile Hill, honored Dr Husbands for his contribution to the sector and he reminded his fellow members they need to praise God every day for challenges which by rights should have prevented tourism from flourishing.
The event saw the inception of Rudy Grant as the incoming CEO of the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association. Sue Springer with the BHTA for the last 16 years, first as Executive Vice President then as Chief Executive Officer, demits her term by December 16th looking to finalise the annual collective agreement with the Barbados Workers Union.
