Jamaica minister of tourism, Edmund Bartlett, has declared February 17th as Global Tourism Resilience Day during a debut event at Expo 2020 in Dubai.
The annual day will showcase the need for the travel industry to focus on preparedness, crisis management, recovery and on-going resilience.
To mark the launch, the Global Tourism Resilience & Crisis Management Centre (GTRCMC) has partnered with the Global Travel & Tourism Resilience Council and the International Tourism Investment Corporation (ITIC).
