“Health City Cayman Islands is the fruition of the vision of world renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Devi Shetty who was Mother Teresa’s personal physician. Health City Cayman Islands is his gift to the Caribbean and the Western World. We want to make sure that anyone who has a need will have access to quality tertiary healthcare. We believe that a person’s socioeconomic status should not determine his or her access to healthcare and we are on a mission to deliver world-class care that is accessible and affordable for all.” – Shomari Scott, Marketing Director, Health City Cayman Islands


“I certainly see willingness on the part of the heads of governments to come to term with some of the issues, but I guess my impatience is I can’t come to meetings all the time and discuss the same issues, over and over and over. Clearly there has to be a limit for that and something has to change.” – Dr. Kenny Anthony, Prime Minister, St. Lucia (CMC)


“By centralizing resources and functioning as a repository for information, gathering and redistributing best and worst practices, the CHTA (Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association) can dramatically strengthen the NHAs (National Hotel Associations) and improve our combined relevance and increase benefits to our members. All of us, in this room, understand the contributions of tourism to our local economies. Tourism means jobs, not only in the hotels but also in areas that are linked to tourism, taxis, restaurants, attractions, and crafts people. And via the tax revenues generated, tourism funds social projects, infrastructure, education, medical, justice and more. Given the amount of people in the region that depend on the accuracy of our vision and success, we simply cannot afford not to get this right.” – Emil Lee, President, Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association


“We continue to expand our presence in the Caribbean to offer customers the most convenient connection options for them to fly to their favorite tourist destinations. We listen to our customers and work diligently to meet their expectations by offering new routes, and also enhanced onboard services to provide them with the best in flight experience.” – Maria Fernanda Price, Regional Manager for the Caribbean, Delta Air Lines


“We are extremely pleased that Southwest Airlines has selected Jamaica as its first international destination. The four Southwest flights, which landed at the Sangster International Airport today, (show) the strong partnership that is being developed between the destination and the airline. The additional flights will make it easier for visitors in the Baltimore, Atlanta and Orlando markets to plan their Jamaican vacation.” – Dennis Morrison, Chairman, Jamaica Tourist Board


“We love the Caribbean and our customer base is very interested in the Caribbean. Our brands do very well there and we have had very high contribution levels.” – Stephen P. Joyce, President and CEO, Choice Hotels International
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe, American professional tennis player
