A high level World Bank official said that Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has already distinguished itself with a very diverse tourism product offering.

Team Leader and Economist at the World Bank, Mr. John Anderson, made the point at the local launch of the 13.4 million EC-dollar World Bank-funded OECS Regional Tourism Competitiveness Project.

Mr. Anderson said that strategic promotion and regulation can further develop niche market segments of priority such as diving and eco-tourism, and that investments in niche tourism will help to create a more competitive tourism sector, which is also more resilient and sustainable. That will in turn, he said, increase the tourism revenue that is spent domestically, and increase networking and linkages between the tourism sector and other sectors in the country.
