Leadership team for implementation and management of Tourism Master Plan to be reinforced
WILLEMSTAD - Seeing the latest development in the numbers of tourists that visit Curaçao, the Supervisory Board of the Curaçao Tourist Development Foundation (CTDF) has made an urgent appeal to the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) to expand the leadership team which is in charge of the Tourism Master Plan for 2015-2020 (TMP). The CTDF takes into account that sustainable economic growth of the tourism sector is central.
Edgar Suares was appointed on July 2, 2016, as the Senior Advisor Strategy Development and Planning in charge of marketing. This position has been vacant since June of this year. Suares was employed as Regional Manager at CTB Europe for 8 years. In his new position, he will be responsible for the areas of marketing, airlift and communication.
Hugo Clarinda, in his position as Deputy Director, will be responsible for bringing in the necessary funds to implement the Tourism Master Plan and also the development of the tourism product.
Both will be sustained by the Department of Strategic Development and Planning, Human Resources, Finance and Legal.
According to the President of the Supervisory Board, Jeanette Hooi-Bonet, with this appointment, they strongly believe that CTB will accelerate the process of implementation of the Tourism Master Plan and that the plan will receive the direction that it needs by taking the necessary actions to reach the specific objectives.
