Guyana, St Vincent to promote as joint tourism destination
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) – Guyana and St Vincent and the Grenadines have began talks aimed at formalising a joint initiative to market the two Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries as a common tourism package.
A government statement said that Tourism Minister Irfaan Ali met with his counterpart from St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cecil McKie on Tuesday to discuss the initiative.
The statement noted St Vincent and the Grenadines is known for its wonderful beaches, sunshine and waters whilst Guyana is a fantastic destination for eco tourists and nature lovers.
