Message of Condolence to the CTO

Message of Condolence to the CTO

OECS Media Statement

The OECS Commission extends its deepest condolences to Caribbean Tourism Organization Board of Directors, Executive Management and staff on the passing of Bonita Morgan, former CTO Director, Resource Mobilization & Development.

During the over twenty years of stewardship at CTO, Bonita worked tirelessly to strengthen the skills of the tourism workforce within the region. Her commitment to the tourism industry in the Caribbean region was evidenced by the numerous training and human resource conferences geared towards the tourism industry. Noteworthy are her efforts in spearheading the Hospitality Assured Caribbean Certification Programme, which a number of Caribbean nationals have benefitted from.

Bonita embraced new technology, a partnership approach and sharing of tourism education opportunities for the benefit of individuals and the overall development of the tourism and hospitality sector. Bonita was always very supportive of the OECS human resource tourism initiatives and earlier this year expressed her well wishes for the Eastern Caribbean Institute of Tourism, a project of the OECS Commission with support from the 10th European Development Fund.

Bonita's contribution to the hospitality and tourism industry within the Caribbean region is undoubtedly commendable. She remained dedicaed, positive and pleasant. Bonita will be missed by the OECS Commission and the tourism and education fraternities of our member states.

Our prayers are with her family and CTO. May her soul rest in peace.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to www.oecs.int

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
