Charles Kirnon and the Parliamentary Secretary, Hon. Veronica Dorsette Hector, supported by senior technicians from the Ministry of Finance had a multiple purpose day of field visits. 

A key aim of the field visit was to gain a deeper understanding of the visitor/tourism/commercial accommodation landscape directly from stakeholders within the industry.  Several established and potential accommodation sites were visited and members of the government were able to speak directly with operators in the industry.  The discussion and feedback will be utilised to further focus and enhance Montserrat’s tourism and accommodation policies.
