The Executives of Caribbean Journal, (an online Caribbean tourism centric news magazine) officially handed Antigua and Barbuda’s Minister of Tourism and Investment the Hon. H. Charles Fernandez his award in honor of the achievement of Caribbean Tourism Minister of the year 2020/2021.

Mr. Guy Britton, Executive Vice President and Mr. Alexander Britel, Editor in Chief and Founder of the magazine both extended hearty congratulations to Minister Fernandez who won the award based on his management of Antigua and Barbuda’s tourism industry during the Covid-19 crisis.

Antigua was the first Caribbean country to re-open its borders to international flights in June 2020 (months after a complete lock-down). This came following major re-structuring alongside the compilation of official Covid-19 protocols to govern different aspects of the industry.

Minister Fernandez commits the award to all the members of his team within the Ministry of Tourism as well as all the workers within the tourism industry in Antigua and Barbuda who have worked assiduously to keep the sector alive.

  1. Congratulations Mr. Fernandez!
    The honorary title of knighthood shall be bestowed upon thee by the chief of state of Antigua on our next Independence Day celebration.

  2. In 2019 4.23 million international visitors visited Jamaica.How many visited Antigua and Barbuda 1.03 million. Is this a popularity contest.

  3. Ok about 1.5 tourist visited Jamaica per person living in Jamaica.
    About 10 tourist visited Antigua per person living in Antigua.
    So if it’s a popularity contest who wins?
    But seriously, don’t hate, if the region recognizes the man, so be it. Antigua is not in any fight against Jamaica.
