The Minister of Planning and Development (Hon. Camille Robinson-Regis):
Thank you very kindly, Madam Speaker. On behalf of the Minister of Tourism, the tourism industry has the potential to significantly contribute to the national economy once its potential is maximized. In 2016, the revenue generated by visitor arrivals to Trinidad and Tobago was estimated at $2.232 billion based on the data collected from the tourism baseline survey in Trinidad. Foreign exchange was generated in the major categories of accommodation, entertainment, tours and sight-seeing and culinary.
