David Scowsill, President & CEO, World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), said: “Our thoughts are with the people of Haiti, who once again find themselves victim of a natural disaster, this time in the form of Hurricane Matthew. Many people have died or been injured. Our hearts go out to the families of those affected.
It is particularly distressing to see that Haiti has been hit again, just as the country was finally recovering from the devastation caused by the earthquake in 2010.
Haiti is a beautiful country with enormous future potential. On behalf of the entire Travel & Tourism sector we stand by Haiti, as it comes to terms with this latest terrible disaster.”
