Bahamas tourism minister elected CTO chairman

The Bahamas minister of tourism, Obie Wilchcombe, has been elected chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO). He will serve a two-year term.

The election took place Sept. 15 at the organization’s annual general meeting in Barbados.

Wilchcombe succeeds Richard Sealy, Barbados’ minister of tourism.

“I intend to build upon what [Richard Sealy] began and I also intend to build on the relationship with the private sector. The CTO is the body that provides equity and we can; and the way is to speak with the same voice. We also have to deal with the issue of inter-regional travel,“ Wilchcombe said.

It is Wilchcombe’s second stint as chairman, having previously been elected to the position in 2002.

Thank goodness... after a year of the usual Bajan bureaucratic do-nothing hopefully someone - anyone - else can take the CTO forward again.
