Ian Douglas.Minister of Tourism Ian Douglas is urging Dominicans to embrace the island’s tourism product.Mr. Douglas, at a press conference last week Friday, highlighted the contribution which the tourism industry has been making on the island’s economy, noting that it is therefore the responsibility of every citizen to ensure that the sector flourishes and is not threatened in anyway.“The Tourism Industry really now is the goose that lays the golden egg; Tourism right now on average employs about 5000 people around Dominica, Tourism generated $243 million into our economy last year and that money filters right through our economy, everybody gets a little piece of the action.”The Minister also noted his concerns regarding recent acts of crime and violence against tourist; this he described as posing a “damaging image” on the sector and should be stopped immediately.“When we have visitors particularly from our source markets like Germany and France being attacked and acts of violence being perpetrated against them; when these people go back or even before they get back in this age of internet and Twitter and Facebook; these type of propaganda and bad publicity damages our destination and people will not want to come anymore.”He further explained that “those types of actions really hurt all of us in Dominica”.Mr. Douglas commended the efforts of the Portsmouth Association of Yacht Security who have organized a community policing imitative at the Prince Rupert Bay in Portsmouth.The Association has secured a boat from the Ministry of Tourism and employs security officers to police the waters between 6pm and 6pm to ensure that the visitors feel safe while at the harbor.He noted that the reviews from this initiative has been tremendous and encouraging increasing the tourist traffic in that area as well as the increased sales for the restaurants in that area.The Minister said; “we want to replicate that kind of example throughout Dominica in all communities” as it is his wish that Dominica’s tourism product can continue to thrive and develop.He admonished that there is a great need for “every single one of us in all our communities must be policemen in our various areas of Dominica” as tourism is indeed everybody’s business.Dominica Vibes News
