PRESS RELEASE – SAINT LUCIA has once again recorded another victory for tourism education after Junior Minister for Tourism and student of the Choiseul Secondary School, Francis Alexander, emerged winner at the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) Youth Congress held last Friday in Grenada.
Ten Caribbean countries participated; however, Alexander secured the top place for Saint Lucia with a dynamic presentation on a “Signature tourism product for Saint Lucia with the elements of relaxation, entertainment and learning experiences which would capture the imagination of young visitors”.
