Minister of Tourism Stephen Cadiz met with Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Orville London new Tourism Secretary, Tracy Davidson-Celestine and advisor Noel Wilson to discuss the way forward for tourism’s success in Tobago. Cadiz visits Tobago each and every Tuesday to engage the THA, tourism insiders and the people of Tobago on issues affecting them and tourism in the sister isle.
The minister believes that with the Ministry of Tourism, the Tobago House of Assembly and the Tourism Development Company united, tourism will get the focus and attention it deserves.

Tobago directly benefits from any increase in airlift, any influx of visitors, domestic or international and the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago benefit by more sustainable jobs, a larger contribution to our GDP and ultimately more revenue enjoyed by all,” Cadiz told the THA officials.
Minister Cadiz, Chief Secretary London and Tourism Secretary Davidson-Celestine discussed major concerns facing Tobago’s tourism industry, most notably airport improvement, the hotel investment fund/tourism development fund, and destination marketing. The TDC, room stock, tradeshows and tourism representatives were also discussed. The THA representatives and Minister Cadiz pledged to have better communication moving forward.
“We all want better results. It starts with every citizen. By regularly meeting to discuss all matters that may arise, the THA, Tourism Secretary I can make informed decisions and ultimately find solutions to produce better results,” Cadiz said.
