Usain Bolt to serve as Special Ambassador for major tourism conference

first_imgJTB said it’s “vital that the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development Ambassadors can encourage positive change in policies and business practices, and educate consumers about the importance of sustainable tourism. The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) has invited Jamaica’s sprint icon Usain Bolt to serve as a Special Ambassador for the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. With Bolt’s status as an internationally-renowned athlete, JTB said he makes for a “compelling advocate, capable of inspiring younger generations to support sustainable tourism to development, and engaging stakeholders in fostering positive change in policies, business practices and consumer behavior.” “Bolt’s international celebrity ensures he is a compelling advocate who can advance the mission of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development,” JTB said. To encourage positive change “Worldwide, tourism provides one in every 11 jobs. This is particularly vital in Caribbean countries,” it added. In Jamaica, the tourism industry employs as many as one in five people. First Caribbean UNWTO conference The invitation to Bolt affords him the opportunity to attend the UN World Tourism Organization, Government of Jamaica and World Bank Group, Global Conference on Jobs and Inclusive Growth through Sustainable Tourism. This will be the first UNWTO conference held in the Caribbean, “and the addition of Bolt as an ambassador will further solidify this Jamaican-led effort,” JTB said. “The conference, taking place November 27 – 29, 2017 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, will kick start discussions for forming public-private-partnerships in the spirit of sustainable tourism for development. Less than half a percent of global funding went to tourism last year,” the JTB said. Conference: November 27 – 29 Bolt – a compelling advocate “In the same way that Usain Bolt’s dominant career has had a significant impact on Brand Jamaica and the island’s tourism, his role as a UNWTO ambassador will further emphasize the importance of this initiative worldwide, especially in the Caribbean,” JTB continued.last_img read more

first_imgSee also:Conte defends Bakayoko after taking him off in Chelsea defeat Embed from Getty ImagesDavid Moyes said West Ham’s willingness to attack Chelsea was key to their 1-0 victory over the Premier League champions.An early Marko Arnautovic strike earned Moyes a first win as Hammers boss from a spirited display at the London Stadium.AdChoices广告Moyes told Sky Sports: “We wanted to cause Chelsea some problems. We knew once they get a grip of the ball their possession would be far greater so that also meant us being good defensively.“For long periods we were really well organised but we always wanted to cause them problems.“We did that a little less in the second half even though we had two or three great opportunities to make a better pass which could have got us a second goal.”West Ham remain in the bottom three in the Premier League table, but are now only one point adrift of West Brom who are fourth from bottom.
