The upcoming winter tourist season expected to be one of the best ever. Story Highlights There were 1,659,330 visitors from January to October 2013. The figures for Montego Bay and Kingston are showing increases for September and October. Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill, says the tourism industry is showing good results, with the upcoming winter tourist season expected to be one of the best ever.“I am pleased to tell you that the tourism industry is doing well. We have enjoyed a good summer after a relatively weak winter (2012) and even with 2,000 (10 per cent) of room inventory off the market, Jamaica’s visitor arrivals since August have bucked the regional trend for flat arrivals in 2013,” the Minister said.Dr. McNeill, who was addressing the official launch of the Agro-Tourism Farmers’ Market Initiative in Negril on October 30, informed that there were 1,659,330 visitors from January to October, which is a 0.2 per cent increase over the same period last year.“In fact, we are experiencing the best October ever,” he said, noting that arrivals are expected to reach the two million mark by year-end.He said the figures for Montego Bay and Kingston are showing increases for September and October, with Kingston’s performance being particularly impressive, given the absence of 303 rooms due to the closure of Wyndham Kingston Hotel.He credited the improvements to the continued drive to diversify the source markets, moving beyond the traditional markets of the United States, Canada, and Western Europe, and tapping into Latin American and Eastern Europe.“We have good airlifts arrangements in place,” the Tourism Minister indicated.“Starting November 1, Russia will be moving from 320 seats to 500 seats. Then on November 7, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner will make its inaugural flight to the Caribbean, landing in Montego Bay. The extended flying range and fuel efficiency of this Dreamliner mean bigger and better things for Jamaica as it will open up new market opportunities for Jamaica, enabling us to reach deeper into Europe and Asia than had been possible before,” he pointed out.The Minister also revealed that the waiving of visa requirements has assisted in gaining ground in Russia and opened the door to Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Hungary and Sweden) the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine.“While these numbers are great for Jamaica and great for the economy, I am on a mission to ensure that every Jamaican benefits from the tourism earnings. Tourism can be sustainable if the man on the ground is involved and enjoys the tourism returns,” Dr. McNeill said.

you have not got more support We always knew that we would have to make personal sacrifices if we tried to touch suchpowerful vested interests But we have got more support than we ever thought we would Look at the young cricketers The harrowing tales that they have come out with are simply heartwrenching Corruption in DDCA spheres is horrendous Thepress media and people have all rallied behind us Kirti Azad’s suspension is only an indication aboutthe rot all around I doff my hat to him for the courage that he has shown in standing with cricket and these young cricketers even if it has cost

he is also facingseveral defamation cases filed by DDCA and third parties instigated by DDCA officials In fact our secretary Sameer Bahadur has also been facing several cases in courts filed by thirdparties and litigation costs have been paid by DDCA Proxy litigation is the speciality ofDDCA and they use proxies to keep complainants enmeshed in courts through expensive andtime-consuming court proceedings What about other members at DDCA How many support you Most of these guys have been made members by the current set of office bearers themselvesover the last 35 years There is no activity worth the name in DDCA yet such peopleremainmembers and hand over their proxies to these 24 directors every year In the last 10 years only 3-4 cricketers have been made members — that too

If a man like Arun Jaitley could not reform the system there is little chance that the systemcan be reformed from the inside We have firmly rebuffed suggestions and overtures to become directors/office bearers/selectors/officials precisely because we know how the system willgobble us if we start serenading with them If we expect to usher in reforms we need tocleanse the system at the roots The proxy system has to go lock stock and barrel Similarly agerestrictions and three-term limits recommended by the Lodha Commission should beimplemented Now that the Delhi High Court has
