Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett says industry workers are earning at least 20% more in wages and salaries than in the pre-pandemic period.

He made the disclosure yesterday at the opening of the Tourism Enhancement Fund’s Speed Networking Event at the Montego Bay Conference Centre.

Minister Bartlett says there’s still scope for significant growth in the tourism sector.

Minister Bartlett says a bumper winter season has pushed revenues close to the 2-billion US dollar mark.
