‘Authentic’ Bajan tourism
BARBADIANS ARE being called to get involved in the business of tourism as the new season rolls around from December 15.

This year’s Tourism Week, which officially begins on Sunday with a service at the Calvary Moravian Church, will be more Barbadian-centred as the country moves to make the tourist season a year-round affair.
Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner, who spoke on Wednesday at a Press conference to signal the celebration of Tourism Week, said the ultimate goal was to create a tourism sector that was authentically Barbadian. (SDB Media)
