Among them, she says were plans to review and improve traditional mainstream tourism, heritage and eco-tourism, health and wellness tourism, business tourism and skills development for the tourism industry.

Madden-Greig also thanked the Portia Simpson Miller-led administration for what she said was the progress made in developing a very important industry.
