  • Message from the Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe on World Tourism Day

    Today, September 27, 2017, Trinidad and Tobago joins the international community in celebrating World Tourism Day. This year’s theme “Sustainable Tourism – a Tool for Development” signifies the importance of tourism in alleviating poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all. The theme is most appropriate this year as I extend my heartfelt sympathy to our neighbouring territories of the Caribbean that were affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
