CARIBBEAN TOURISM is looking up but Barbados is not among Caribbean countries expected to record double digit growth this year.

This emerged during the Caribbean Tourism Organisation’s (CTO) television programme Destination Caribbean on Thursday night at the Caribbean Media Corporation.

CTO director of research and information technology Winfield Griffith said Grenada, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos Islands, Haiti were Caribbean destinations which had increased their visitor arrivals by at least ten per cent during the first half of this year.

He said overall Caribbean tourist arrivals this year should be at least five per cent, with other destinations like Barbados expected to have lower increases. (SC)
