President of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association, JHTA, Omar Robinson, says they’ll be contributing US$20-thousand to recovery efforts in the Bahamas.

This after the northern islands of the Bahamas  were battered by hurricane Dorian last week.

Mr Robinson was addressing the opening of the Jamaica Product Exchange, JAPEX 2019, at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James, Monday evening.

The Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Centre is located at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus and is mandated to deal with climate-related issues.

Mr Robinson says the JHTA hopes the resources will be the catalyst for  the rebuilding, and healing to begin.

Dorian made landfall on Abaco as a powerful category five hurricane last week Sunday. It later hit the Grand Bahama Island.

Dorian’s damage is estimated at just over US$7-billion .
