The Minister of Economic Development & Tourism Jamahl Simmons and MP Tinee Furbert today [Sept 27] observed World Tourism Day and used the opportunity to meet with staff and greet visitors at Rosewood Tuckers Point Hotel, touring the hotel with the General Manager, Paul Telford.

Observed annually on September 27th, World Tourism Day was started by the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization in 1980 to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic values.

Minister Simmons used the visit with the staff to thank them for their service. While he was on site Minister Simmons met with housekeeping, maintenance, landscaping and concierge staff.

Minister Simmons said: “Those who work in the tourism industry are our most important resource as they are the ones who enrich the experience of our guests through their warmth and hospitality.

“The government wants more Bermudians in the industry, more Bermudians getting promoted in the industry and more Bermudians leading this industry.

“To that end we will continue to collaborate with employers and hoteliers to build on our tourism product and promote a workforce that ensures Bermudians have access to employment and ownership of businesses in the tourism sector.”
