News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – Recently, the Minister of Labour, Jason Hayward and his team attended the Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) joint hotelier stakeholder meeting hosted at The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.
The group held roundtable discussions about employment opportunities in the hotels and attracting Bermudians to the industry. They also reviewed the findings from the Hospitality Needs assessment conducted by PwC and will continue holding regular meetings to keep the effort on track.
Minister Hayward stated: “In line with Bermuda’s Economic Recovery Plan, which includes execution of both the National Jobs Strategy and Youth Employment Strategy, these stakeholder meetings and forums are vital. As we move towards building a healthy economy where Bermudians can be employed, we must also ensure that the hotel industry can meet the needs of guests staying at their properties.”
