GREAT BAY— The St. Maarten Tourist Bureau is calling on the community to share their stories and experiences about working in the hospitality sector in connection with World Tourism Day (WTD) which is observed globally every September 27.
The theme for 2014 WTD is “Tourism and Community Development.” Workers in the tourism sector can share their stories and experiences by going to the World Tourism Day Facebook Page and also join the #WTD2014 conversation on Twitter to share thoughts with the global tourism community.
The theme selected is for the tourism sectors around the globe to place emphasis and focus on the ability of tourism to empower people and provide them with the skills to achieve change in their local communities. The St. Maarten Tourist Bureau falls under the Ministry of Tourism and Economic Affairs, Transportation and Telecommunications (Ministry TEATT).
