#506938 - 08/27/15 11:37 AM Minister Heredia: Crime Does Not Affect Tourism
Marty Offline

Last week we told you about a minimal dip in the tourist arrival as it pertains to cruise tourism in Belize. Without a doubt the drop is cause of concern for those involved in the tourism industry. This morning while at a handing over ceremony in Belize City which we will tell you about later in our newscast, the media had the opportunity to speak with the Minister of Tourism Manuel Heredia on the matter. Heredia was asked if Belize’s alarming crime rate has impacted the tourism figures and his response was that he does not think so and we should feel lucky not to be directly affected since maintaining the figures is in itself a triumph.

MANUEL HEREDIA JR – Tourism Minister

“When it comes to crime we are very fortunate and lucky that it has not recently been very minimal when it comes to the tourism industry so we are very lucky and hence the reason for trying to support them to make sure that no tourist is hurt or no tourist is assaulted because that can really hurt the industry at this point we are fortunate and we will continue doing our best to make sure we can equip our police officers and to make sure they do whatever they can like the voluntary police, we have neighborhood watches that we are doing across the country to make sure that this beautiful of jewel remain a such in the years to come.”

That's one thing about Belize and especially AC. There is ample sand to stick your head in.
