“The Caribbean is the first major trip I ever took out of the U.S., so it will always hold a special place in my heart. When I went to St. Thomas many years ago, I was stunned by how beautiful it was and how friendly the people were. I have been so fortunate to return to the Caribbean many times since then, and writing about it has been an added bonus for me. However, being able to interview and interact with the executives who promote the islands has been my greatest joy.” – Ruthanne Terrero, Vice President of Content / Editorial Director, Questex Travel Group (Travel Agent)


“I am inspired by Jamaica. The people who work with me… so many of us here, we work together, we do business together we are friends, we are family.” – Adam Stewart, CEO, Sandals Resorts International (Jamaica Observer)


“Cuba gets more tourists a year other than anyone in the Caribbean except for the Dominican Republic … so, we are not talking about a country that is new to tourism at all.” – Richard Sealy, Minister of Tourism, Barbados / Chairman, Caribbean Tourism Organization (Travel Agent)


“We needed a publication which demonstrates that we can compete internationally from an emerging market and I believe the production of (Caribbean Export) OUTLOOK does that. We look forward to working with the Caribbean Export team again to produce this much needed publication.” – Neysha Soodeen, Publisher, Toute Bagai Publishing 


“In politics and business, all progress is by negotiation. It’s in the negotiation that you have to be led by your convictions. You negotiate in such a way that you protect your convictions and you still get the deal done.” – Reverend A. R. Bernard, Senior Pastor, Christian Cultural Center, Brooklyn, NY
