Turks and Caicos Islands Premier Rufus Ewing will lead a delegation to the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s Caribbean Week in Toronto from 26 to 28 June.
Mr. Ewing, who is also the minister of tourism, will make several appearances at the organisation’s events during the week, which celebrates the sights, sounds and holiday attributes of the Caribbean.
As part of his programme, the premier will address leading industry officials, including top travel agents from the Greater Toronto Area, at an industry luncheon on 26 June.
His presentation is expected to highlight current developments within the tourism sector in Turks and Caicos, as well as immediate and long term plans for additional development of the industry.
He will also speak with travel agents at the Travel Agents Exhibition and Educational Programme on Thursday, 27 June.
Mr. Ewing is scheduled to appear at the media briefing on Thursday morning and get to go one-on-one with leading Canadian journalists at Media Marketplace immediately following the news briefing. He will also meet with a group of young Caribbean professionals in Toronto.
“Caribbean Week in Toronto is another important avenue through which we continue to remind potential travellers and industry practitioners of the quality and unforgettable experience that awaits them in the Turks and Caicos Islands,” the premier said. “I thank the CTO for continuing to provide these opportunities to tell our story to the world.”
