Don't stop, Mr Bartlett!

THE EDITOR, Sir:

The tourism portfolio within the Andrew Holness administration is one of the shining jewels that is the envy of the rest of the world.

Since Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett took the helm of this portfolio, he has started the growth of this critical foreign exchange-generating industry exponentially year after year.

The Diaspora community within the United States has seen and felt the excellent job that the tourism ministry is doing from the many non-Jamaicans that have visited or have shown strong interest in visiting "Jamaica, land we love" due to the marketing apparatus of the tourism ministry.

Minister Bartlett, the Diaspora is calling on you to step up the prosperity and not let your detractors block your vision of assisting Jamaica to earn its way out of its debt. Carry on, Bartlett!
