COVID-19 has sent a shockwave to the world and jolted the tourism industry that is the major economic earner for Barbados and most of the Caribbean . National Tourism Initiative (NTI) has therefore targeted the Tourism Sector and its ancillary services as the first set of stakeholders to launch its e-modules to usher in a culture of national excellence that resonates with all Barbadians and develops a nation of creative, empowered thinkers.
NTI & Tourism
NTI is part of Government’s Retraining and Retooling programme (ReRe), itself a construct within The Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) Programme.
“The Re-Re Program, which involves the Retooling, Empowering, Retraining and Enfranchising of workers has to be at the core of the International Monetary Funded (IMF) program over the next four years. This is the next phase of the Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) program that is a comprehensive retraining of Barbadian workers in an effort to make the workforce “globally fit for purpose”.
