Last Updated on

Minister of Tourism The Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant led staff from the St. Kitts Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Tourism to give God thanks at the Antioch Baptist Church on Sunday as part of the activities of Tourism Awareness Month.

BASSETERRE (5TH November, 2019): The month of November has been designated as Tourism Awareness Month, with the theme: “Tourism: re-Focused and We Focused #StepUp”.

Minister of Tourism The Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant explained that the theme invites citizens and residents to continue working innovatively and collectively to sustain the phenomenal gains we continue to make in Tourism. It also highlights the fact that Tourism is indeed EVERYBODY’s BUSSINES, and as such we are all Tourism ambassadors.

Minister Grant pointed out that the Tourism Sector is a major engine of economic growth and social development in the Federation, employing approximately 25% of the nation’s workforce and contributing 26% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product.

“Whether directly or induced, the benefits derived from Tourism impact the general quality of life for every Kittitian and Nevisian,” Minister Grant said. “Our attitudes, our actions and interactions – with each other, and with our guests – are therefore critical to the long-term viability of this very dynamic and transversal industry.”

Throughout this month a variety of events and activities will highlight the fact that the tourism sector is vitally important to our country and that we all need to #StepUp to better understand, support and protect tourism as one of the key drivers of our economy.

Some of the major activities include:

4th to 8th November:
Talks in Schools with tourism stakeholders

Final Judging of Best Village Competition
