Statement by Honourable Marlon Penn - Tourism and Health Programme

Friday, 18 November 2022 - 12:02pm

Madam Speaker, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic we are even more keenly aware of the significant linkages between the health and tourism sectors, and the importance of both sectors to our economy and society. For the tourism industry to be sustainable, it is important to effectively manage any negative health impacts on the Territory, in order to protect both the local population and the industry.  Ensuring sustainability is also an essential component of economic development and maintaining and improving the quality of life in small islands.
