The OECS Commission, with support from the World Bank, is currently implementing a project to develop a harmonised framework for collecting and reporting tourism market intelligence (TMI) data in the OECS.
This framework will allow participating Member States to collect, organise, report and use the statistical data necessary for tourism market intelligence and ultimately enhance the quality of decision-making in the vital Tourism Sector in the OECS.
The regional workshop will be held in the St George’s Suite at the Grenadian by Rex Resorts, Point Salines, on 27 June 2017. The workshop will serve to present a prototype of the Framework that was designed based on the input of Member States received at the regional TMI Awareness Workshop held in Saint Lucia on 10 March 2017, and allow discussions and additional feedback to ensure that the TMI Framework meets the needs of Member States.
This workshop will also facilitate further collaboration among the Member States to finalise a regional harmonised air, cruise and yacht questionnaire that will form part of the data collection aspect of the OECS TMI Framework.
