Antigua and Barbuda sets up tourism safety task force

 

Antigua and Barbuda has established a Tourism Task Force focusing on visitor safety, the government announced recently.

The force is the result of cooperation between the Ministry of National Security and the Ministry of Tourism.

“Antigua & Barbuda is a tourist reliant economy and therefore, we have to be mindful of any criminal activity that is aimed at tourists,” said Minister of National Security Dr Errol Cort. “While we have been very fortunate in this country to have minimum criminal activity directed at tourists, we want to ensure that such activities are at a zero level.”
