St Vincent and the Grenadines has a new tourism minister, following the country’s recent general elections.
The country’s new tourism chief is Carlos James, whose portfolio also includes Civil Aviation, Sustainable Development and Culture.
“I am looking forward to a number of major projects that are coming on stream both on St. Vincent the mainland and also in the Grenadines,” James said in a statement.
That includes projects in the pipeline with brands including Marriott, Holiday Inn Express and Beaches. (The latter is the first-ever project by Sandals Resorts International in the country).
“This is going to be an exciting time here as the Minister of Tourism, I am quite looking forward to serving the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and also my government. This is St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Caribbean you’re looking for,” James said.
St Vincent and the Grenadines is currently open for tourism.
