The Austrian Chamber of Commerce plays a big role!

Salzburg, Austria – The Caribbean islands and countries were very fortunate to have been afforded the opportunity to study in Austria on full scholarships. This is a program targeted towards bringing unity within the world. The Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management (ITH) programme which runs for 8 montnhs and allows for 3 months of internship, is geared towards improving persons within the tourism industry. Programmes are available in Teacher’s Training, Hotel Management and Tourism and Travel Agency Management held in Salzburg, Austria. This programme is in its 43rd year and the Caribbean islands have made a big representation this year.Some islands have been represented before, but for most islands this is a first. I am very proud to be the first person from Dominica here and I hope many will follow.

The participants of this course come from all around the world (Bhutan, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Greece, USA, Kenya, Cape Verde Islands, Uganda, Gambia, Saychelles and Papua New Guinea) which allows us to enjoy a programme rich in culture, beliefs and languages. This is the true feel of Tourism from around the world. After this programme many will hope to return to their countries with a greater appreciation for the industry, play bigger roles and contribute more with a better understanding of the industry.

The Austrian Chamber of Commerce has made great strides in developing and establishing relationships with the Caribbean and this opportunity has brought praise to Austria through the participants and governments of the respective countries.

Well done Austria!!!
