The sector is currently facing its biggest challenge that is threatening to jeopardize the future growth of tourism if not addressed accordingly. The challenges are not only affecting our island, but the world in general, COVID-19 has brought our island into unchartered territory, however as the hospitality and tourism association, CHATA is doing all that it can to collaborate with the Government to reach a level of understanding. CHATA had also been gathering information regarding employment impact, in order to make the proper analysis as well as providing their members with information through webinars regarding Employment Measures, Tax Measures, Insurance and Marketing Strategy. After giving a brief update regarding the COVID-19 developments, Mr. Mercera provided the CHATA Projections, which included how COVID-19 will affect our industry.

At the end of the session the chairman of the CHATA Board, Mr. Hans Slier, took the time to provide the virtual audience with CHATA’s outlook for 2020. Qualified and well-trained employees are critical for the further sustained growth and development of the sector as they hold the potential to make or break our destinations reputation and experience of our visitors. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic that the world is facing, it is important to stick together and get through this hardship in order to come out stronger together. Mr. Hans Slier concludes his speech by urging all stakeholders, members, our community and government officials to continue the trend of working together like we have been doing in the previous year in order to surpass the COVID-19 pandemic and to guarantee a bright future for Tourism.
