Bahamas tourism minister elected CTO chairman

The Bahamas minister of tourism has been elected chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO).


CTO names Bahamas tourism minister as chairman

Minister Obie Wilchcombe succeeds Barbados’s Minister Of Tourism and International Transport Richard Sealy, and will serve a two-year term.


The election took place yesterday in Barbados at the organisation’s annual general meeting during the CTO’s State of the Tourism Industry Conference.


Wilchcombe said: "I intend to build upon what Richard Sealy began and I also intend to build on the relationship with the private sector.


“I’ve always thought that CTO is the body that provides equity and we can; and the way is to speak with the same voice. We also have to deal with the issue of inter-regional travel."


It is Wilchcombe’s second stint as chairman, having previously been elected to the position in 2002.
