RATIONALE

Tourism comprises the activities of persons travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one year for leisure, business and other purposes. Tourism is a major vehicle for economic development in the Caribbean. In most Caribbean countries it contributes significantly to Gross Domestic Product, government revenue, foreign exchange and employment. It also contributes to the quality of life of the citizens and residents of these countries. Its importance to the development of the region in general and to the economies of particular countries cannot be overstated. Being the most tourism-dependent region in the world, its future relies on the development of its human resources; strengthening inter-sectoral linkages; and managing tourism for sustainability.
