    Award is nice, but the true success will be measured in an increase in tourism traffic.

    That is great, of course but why didn’t you tell us that of this event and our participation in advance?
    Even this release does not say that it takes place in London at the Excel Centre from 7-9 Nov. and you can find the Dominica Tourism Authority on stand CA 235, which they share with the CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organisation). Perhaps Dominicans do not need to know that we spend tax payer’s money participating in such events? One would have thou8ght a that any publicity would be good for our tourism. So much for nation building!
