Set tourism apart
LOCAL hotelier, Paul Doyle, continues to make the plea that tourism must be seen and treated differently from most industries as, unlike domestic industries, tourism’s market consists of the “everybody else”. He continues to be concerned about the level of duties being placed on products which hotels need to import because they are not supplied here, and argues that Barbados cannot be labelled by tourists as an “expensive” destination as they now have more choices.

Doyle, the Managing Director of The Crane, made these comments during a recent sit-down interaction with members of the media to discuss a new construction project which the hotel will be rolling out come January.

He made the point that being in the tourism business had its positives and drawbacks, remarking that one positive was being able to engage in further projects despite an economic lull in the country.
