Community tourism groups hold talks with CTF

The Tourism Department continues to support Community Based Tourism Development in both the North Windward and North Leeward areas of the country.

The recently formed Fancy Chapter of the North Windward Tourism Association met recently with Caribbean Tourism Foundation (CTF) representative, to discuss plans for the creation of an Indigenous Foods Restaurant. Maxwell Francis-coordinator of the association attended a Community Based Tourism Workshop in Trinidad hosted by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) in collaboration with the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) and co-financed by the European Union’s Caribbean Regional Sustainable Tourism Development Programme (CRSTDP).

The North Leeward Tourism Association (NLTA) also had a visit from the CTF representative concerning potential projects in their area to aid in community and tourism development.
