Jamaica has been elected first vice-chairman of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Executive Council (EC) for 2013.

It is the first time that the country will hold the position, after it previously served as second vice-chair. Jamaica was elevated following a successful bid during the elections at the 94th meeting of the UNWTO EC held in Campeche, Mexico, recently. The meeting was attended by Minister of Tourism, Dr Wykeham McNeill.

The UNWTO EC deliberates on policies and strategies that affect tourism worldwide before making recommendations to the General Assembly for action. As a member of the EC, Jamaica represents the interests of the Americas.
