Minister Joins BTA For Joint Stakeholder Meeting

May 3, 2022

Minister of Economy & Labour Jason Hayward recently joined the Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] for a joint hotelier stakeholder meeting hosted at Rosewood Bermuda.

A Government spokesperson said, “This meeting is a follow-up to one held at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club in December 2021. It represents stakeholders’ ongoing commitment to having an open dialogue about the hospitality industry’s challenges and viable solutions.

“The group discussed the industry’s current state, hospitality education in the schools, solutions to attract more Bermudians to the industry, and how to go about revitalising Bermuda’s tourism industry.”

Minister Hayward stated, “I am pleased to continue these important stakeholder meetings that are geared toward working to grow our tourism industry which is vital to job creation and an important pillar of Bermuda’s economy.”

CEO Bermuda Tourism Authority, Charles H. Jeffers II, stated, “As an organisation we understand the challenges facing the island’s tourism industry and are committed to working collaboratively with our stakeholders to turn the tide and realise the tremendous potential that exists.

“That’s why we have joined forces to address the industry’s most pressing concerns, build out a platform supporting the development of a quality hospitality workforce, and to lay the groundwork for the future as part of our plan to revitalise tourism.”

The group has formed sub-committees to address various items discussed and will meet again later in the year.

    Is the Minister of Transport involved in these meetings. If not why not. For example, the Pink Ferry route he wants to butcher is an important tourist attraction for many. It is an iconic Bermuda scene. Bit by bit Bermuda is losing its way because Ministers are too short sighted and blind to the bigger picture, which is hurting tourism.
