  • Preliminary figures from the Jamaica Tourist Board indicate that Jamaica has already earned US$3.1Bn to date from tourist arrivals.
  • The data also indicates that from January to October 2019, Jamaica welcomed 3.4Mn visitors to the island.
  • Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett said it is very likely that Jamaica will achieve the US$3.7Bn in earnings projected for this year.
  • Bartlett said this development puts the island on track to surpass the ministry's five-pillar growth strategy, which when proposed in 2016 was projected to result in visitor arrivals increasing to five million in five years and earning US$5Bn.
