“The change in strategic direction is welcomed by Barbados. We expect to see a turnaround in LIAT’s fortunes, more responsiveness to market messages and, of course, once the whole issue of fleet renewal is complete and the disposal of the seven remaining Dash 8 planes and the reduction in the head count is complete, we think that LIAT will be on a much more viable and sustainable footing.” – Freundel Stuart, Prime Minister, Barbados (Jamaica Observer)
“No longer can visitor arrivals be the main measurement of our success. We must take a fresh look at how we position our Territory for visitors seeking experiences for which they are willing to pay a premium. This will require a change of thinking, from viewing visitors as tourists to viewing them as travelers, and we will have to set the stage for change that must occur in the next decade.” – Beverly Nicholson-Doty, Commissioner of Tourism, United States Virgin Islands (Virgin Islands Daily News)
“Haiti is taking a giant leap forward today toward recapturing her place as one of the leading tourism destinations in the Caribbean. We couldn’t be more pleased to have partnered with Cablevision on this campaign and can’t wait to showcase Haiti’s tourism charms to New York-area viewers.” – St├ęphanie Balmir-Villedrouin, Minister of Tourism and Creative Industries, Haiti
“According to preliminary data, the United States of America and Canada accounted for 33 percent of stay over arrivals to Grenada in 2014. We congratulate all our tourism stakeholders and the resorts that contribute to the increased brand awareness in these major source markets.” – Esther Thomas, Manager – Research and Planning, Grenada Tourism Authority
“In the (United) States, if an ambulance pulls into a hospital, you never see a doctor until you’ve been processed inside. When I got here (Health City Cayman Islands), Dr. Ravi (Kishore) met me. He made me feel at ease with all the experience he had. Less than an hour later, I was in the cath theater, and they were doing an angiogram.” – Rod Linkous, U.S. Air Force veteran and resident of Seattle, Washington
“Let us mobilize the blessings of friendship and watch it exponentially nourish our souls, our lives and our businesses.” – Dr. Basil Springer, Change-Engine Consultant, Caribbean Business Enterprise Trust
“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time – past and future – the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.” – Eckhart Tolle, Author
