The Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association will on Wednesday February 06th launch a project titled the Hotel Sector Recovery Plan at the Dodgy Dock Restaurant at True Blue Bay Resort.
Political Counsellor in Canadian High Commission, Barbados, Mrs. Debbie DesRosiers, will be in Grenada for the official launch of the project which funded by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives.
Ian DaBreo, President of the Hotel and Tourism Association welcomes this support. “2012 was a very active year for the GHTA in terms of advocacy and lobbying efforts, and the preparation of this economic recovery plan is urgently needed by the sector so that we can work effectively with our Membership to overcome the economic crisis the hotel sector faces at this time”.
A news release from the GHTA said that the purpose of this project is to draft a sector-wide economic recovery plan that will be used to guide lobbying, programming and fundraising activities for the GHTA thus stimulating economic recovery for the sector.
“The desire for an action plan to clearly outline what the tourism sector perceives to be priority actions for economic recovery has been expressed by members, politicians, and donors,” said the release. The document produced will then be used as a core communications tool with stakeholders and agencies so that Grenadians can work together to harmonise their different approaches to economic recovery in an informed and focused way.
