KINGSTON, Jamaica — Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett has been named the Caribbean Tourism Minister of the Year according to the Caribbean Travel Awards 2017, carried out by the Caribbean Journal editorial team.

“Being an effective tourism official in the Caribbean isn't just about management and ideas. It's about being an ambassador. And that's exactly what Jamaica's Edmund Bartlett has done so well in this, his most recent term as Jamaica's Minister of Tourism.

“Bartlett, who spearheaded Jamaica's hosting of the UNWTO Conference in Montego Bay last month, has become an exceptionally effective ambassador for the Caribbean tourism brand and Jamaica's national brand. And, that work is joined by Jamaica's significant recent success in attracting new hotel investment, new airlift, and, most importantly, new visitors,” The Caribbean Journal editorial team said.

Meanwhile, the tourism ministry congratulated Round Hill Hotel and Villas for receiving the Caribbean Hotel of the Year award and the newly opened spa at the Jewel Grand Montego Bay Resort and Spa for receiving the Caribbean Spa of the Year award.

Caribbean Journal is the largest website covering the Caribbean, with original content and video focusing on travel and tourism across the entire Caribbean Basin.
