Guyana to Host 13th Annual Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development

April 7, 2011 By: Joe Pike

Guyana will host the 13th Annual Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development (STC-13) next year. Bermuda's Director of Tourism William Griffith recently passed the symbolic Sustainable Tourism Scroll to the Deputy Director of the Guyana Tourism Authority, Tameca Sukhdeo-Singh, at the closing of STC-12 in Bermuda.

"Guyana’s tourism product has its genesis in sustainable tourism development,” said Sukhdeo-Singh. “From the inception, the government realized that we needed to place our focus on developing a tourism product that protected our environment. Hence, we followed in the footsteps of sustainable tourism. This placed us in an advantageous position because we offer a multifaceted product to our tourists, both international and domestic."

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) believes that STC-13 will showcase the diversity of the Caribbean's tourism product and highlight the attributes of a destination with vast natural resources and large-scale eco-systems.

“Guyana’s emergence as an attractive tourism destination is a tribute to the quality of their natural assets, and their commitment to sustainability. On behalf of CTO, I am pleased to accept Guyana’s offer to host the 2012 conference,” CTO Chairman Richard "Ricky" Skerritt said.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) and Guyana will, within the next few weeks, determine a date for STC-13.
