The Bahamas’ Ministry of Tourism has appointed Latia Duncombe as its new director general. 

Duncombe had been serving as the country’s Acting Director General for the last year. 

“During the past year, Mrs. Duncombe has brought energetic leadership to our senior executive management team at the Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation,” said Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister and Tourism Minister Cooper. “She has made a seamless transition from the corporate sector to public service, parlaying her wealth of knowledge and experience into outstanding leadership of Team Tourism. She came aboard at a critical juncture as we undertook the task of Tourism recovery and has worked tirelessly toward the goal of getting our industry back on track.”

Duncombe is the seventh Director General in the 54-year history of the Ministry of Tourism. 

“Our robust performance last year is a testament that growth and expansion are realizable, considering our country’s assets and the resilience of our people. We have excelled not just in the numbers, but also in revenues,” Duncombe said. “I want to express my sincere gratitude to former leaders and Team Tourism, all of whom have played an integral role in leading, undergirding and facilitating The Bahamas’ mainstay. It has been an honor to be able to serve my country.”

She officially succeeds former Director General Joy Jibrilu, who is now the chief executive officer of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board.
