The summer of 2022, has been the best in Jamaica’s history for tourism.
This year, Jamaica recorded the best stopover visitor arrivals figure and foreign exchange earnings for any summer period in the country’s history.
According to Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, “we have 5,000 more visitors than in [the summer of] 2019, which was a record year; [and] the better news is that our earnings in the summer [of 2022 are] up 20 per cent over 2019.”
“So, not only is it that the numbers [of visitors] came, but the earnings from tourism also grew. So… this summer is the best summer that tourism has experienced in the history of Jamaica,” the Minister added.
He made the announcement while addressing the welcome ceremony for the 18th annual USA Travel Advisor Golf Tournament at Sandals Ochi Rios Beach Resort in St. Ann, on Saturday (September 10).
