Date

Jamaica

As is customary Jamaica's Ministry of Tourism, its agencies and tourism partners will seek to raise awareness of the vital contribution that the sector is making to the island’s social and economic development and the many opportunities it provides through the observance of our annual Tourism Awareness Week (TAW). This year the week will be observed from September 25 to October 1 and will incorporate World Tourism Day (WTD), which will be recognized on September 27.

The theme for the week is “Tourism for All; Promoting Universal Accessibility,” which is the theme selected by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) for World Tourism Day.

In observation of WTD we will be highlighting a special project of the Tourism Enhancement Fund, which seeks to provide accessibility to physically challenged persons as underscored by the theme.
