“For me, it has never been about whether I am captain or not. I just enjoy playing for West Indies. Not many people get to wake up in the morning and get to do something they love. I know I have a lot of friends who wake up on a Monday morning not wanting to go to work. For me, it’s about enjoying what I do, and whether I’m captain or not, it’s about giving the best for the team.” – Darren Sammy, Captain, West Indies Test and T20 cricket sides (
“In the UK and Europe, generally the outlook is positive for 2014 – bookings for the winter were looking stronger than those of last year and the forward booking pace is encouraging. The UK, and also Europe, is seeing a longer length of stay of 12 to 14 days which is a very good boost for Barbados’ tourism receipts. We therefore need to go into those markets and ensure that Barbados is kept top of mind with the tour operators and consumers.” – Patricia Affonso-Dass, President, Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), (Barbados Advocate)

“I congratulate my friend and predecessor, former Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, on his new role as Vice President of Borough Promotion and Engagement for NYC & Company. There have been few who have connected with the spirit of this borough and this city like Marty. Now every neighborhood from the North Shore to the South Bronx, from East Elmhurst to the Upper West Side, will benefit from this energetic ambassador. Of course, I fully expect that his greatest contribution will be to his beloved borough of Brooklyn.” – Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President
