The Belize Tourism Board, has a new high profile chairman. She is Dr Carla Barnett who's returning from a post as Vice President of the Caribbean Development Bank. She will lead an almost fully re-constituted board which had an introductory meeting yesterday. The board includes new members Rosendo Chendo Urbina, representing the north, Glenn Eiley representing the south, Doug Thompson who represents the Hotel Association, Herbert Haylock form the Belize Tourism Industry Association, Christy Mastry who directed the sustainable tourism project, Jamael Babb who has a law degree, CEO Tracy Taegar Panton, and long time members from Belize Rural South, Gach Guerrero who represents the airline sector, Neil Bradley who represents the Cayes and outer islands, and Acting Chairman Einer Gomez who will remain as Vice Chairman.

The Barnett appointment is seen as another appointment straight out of Cabinet to try and provide some strong fiscally oriented governance after the BTB ran into a deficit last year – one which the Board's finance committee had to know about.
