Politicole: Welcome To The Land Of Fake Gucci And Armed Robbery
TOURISM Minister Wilchcombe says we will increase airlift, increase marketing, increase advertising, increase stopover visitors, increase US tourist offices, but I’m not hearing him say anything about increasing the tourism product itself by way of diversification of the product, or by improving or helping to improve the country, the people, or the people’s accessible culture – in other words, the tourism product.
What are you selling your tourists, Minister Wilchcombe? Fake Gucci and armed robbery?
A US-Cuba Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on air travel was signed recently and it appears that “all systems are go” with large airlines getting set to offer direct non-stop flights to Havana from cities all across the United States. This is “the day” the Bahamian tourism industry should not have ever dreaded, if only they had mastered their product long before its arrival.
