Democratic Labour Party candidate for St Michael South Central, Richard Sealy, believes Denis Kellman understands tourism better than any other.

He was speaking during a meeting just outside Kellman’s constituency office at Pie Corner, St Lucy last night.

“Dennis Kellman brought the concept of community tourism with his concept at half Moon Fort and Moon Town. He came up with the concept in terms of what tourist want to experience and what we should do.

“He found the then government had no uses for that whatsoever," he said.

He explained that they were still in the process of restructuring their tourism sector but it would be developed into one which will stand strong for the future. “The recovery we are after will set us on a firm foundation going forward to unprecedented levels”.

The current minister of tourism said tourism was extremely critical to the island since it assisted with the formation of jobs, economic growth, as well as impacted social development.

Barbados is rated the highest among many in the world and the “influence of Denis Kellman should not be underestimated."

“Barbados has the highest satisfaction index. Whatever the initiatives are it is at improving destination satisfaction. We have been receiving international attention for some time now from international, unbiased observers who could be honest.”  (RG)
