Last year the Tourism Industry contributed some $243 million dollars to the national economy. It was responsible for up to 3500 direct jobs. So I mention these facts in this contest in speaking to our youth to let them know that if you are considering a life of contributing meaningfully to society, that you could look to the Tourism Industry as a potential employer. But I want to make the point that your success in it will depend on how well you apply yourself.”Mr. Piper also impressed upon the students that it is encumbent upon students to develop thier skills, work ethics and attitudes towards service, as quality service will always be a key ingredient to success in life.Dominica Vibes News Share LocalNews Tourism Industry accounts for 3,500 direct jobs says DDA official. by: – May 6, 2011 14 Views no discussions Share Sharing is caring!
