Caribbean Hotel Association Calls for Joint Mission to the U.S. Capitol

The Caribbean Hotel Association (CHA) is reaching out to all Caribbean government heads to join an effort to minimize the potentially devastating economic impact and loss of jobs in Caribbean countries by the exclusion of air travel in the extension of passport requirements. CHA has maintained that any postponement of the WHTI implementation should apply equally to all countries involved and equally to travel by land, air and sea, and that no country or industry should be disadvantaged arbitrarily to the economic advantage of any other sector. The missive closes with a direct call to action, for a delegation of Caribbean heads and tourism industry leaders to go to Washington, D.C., to address the matter. The Washington, DC-based Caribbean/Central American Action and the WTTC have committed their support to CHA and the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
