Madam Speaker, tikuwona kale zinthu zabwino zomwe zikuyenda bwino pomwe ntchito zokopa alendo zikupitiliza kupititsa patsogolo chuma cha Jamaica pambuyo pa COVID-19.

Madam Speaker, bungwe la Planning Institute of Jamaica's (PIOJ) laposachedwa kwambiri pazachuma kuyambira Januware mpaka Marichi 2022 likuwonetsa kuti "mtengo Weniweni Wawonjezedwa Pamahotela & Malo Odyeramo wakwera ndi pafupifupi 105.7 peresenti."

Madam Speaker, kuyika maziko owonetsetsa kuti kuchira kwamtunduwu kupitirire ndi lingaliro lomwe lidapangitsa kuti misika yathu yapadziko lonse ikhale yopambana kwambiri pomwe ndidatsogolera gulu lapamwamba la zokopa alendo ku United Kingdom, United States kenako ku Dubai. kuti mufufuze mwayi wopeza ndalama komanso kukwera ndege komanso kulimbikitsa maulendo oyendera alendo ku Jamaica.

Malo athu oyamba, London, adatiwona titatsekedwa m'masiku asanu ndi limodzi obwerera-kumbuyo ndi okhudzidwa kwambiri monga Virgin Atlantic komanso zoyankhulana ndi ma TV akuluakulu ndi olemba maulendo. Madam Speaker, UK ndi msika wachitatu waukulu kwambiri wopezera alendo obwera kumene ndipo ulendowu unali wofunikira kuti tiyambitse zokambirana zomwe cholinga chake ndi kulimbikitsa omwe akubwera komanso phindu la magawo. 

Panthawi yaku UK ya blitz, tidalumikizana ndi mnzanga wa Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia "Babsy" Grange, pazochitika ziwiri zoyambitsa Jamaica 60 ku London ndi Birmingham. Madam Speaker, mndandanda wa zochitika zokumbukira zaka 60 chilumbachi chili pa ufulu wodzilamulira ukhala ndi misonkhano ya mpingo, nyimbo ndi magule ovina, zionetsero, maphwando a m’minda ndi zikondwerero zanyimbo, zonse zidzachitika pansi pa mutu wakuti ‘Kulamulira Mtundu Waukulu’ .

Zochitika zotsegulira za J60 zidapereka mwayi wabwino kwambiri wolumikizana ndi akuluakulu athu aku UK Diaspora, omwe amakhala ndi opitilira "mabanja ndi abwenzi" omwe akufuna kukhalabe ndi chidziwitso komanso kulumikizana kwawo. Diaspora ndi gawo la msika lomwe lingathe kulimbikitsa mgwirizano kuti tiyendetse ntchito zokopa alendo, malonda ndi mwayi wopeza ndalama. Madam Speaker, awa ndi gawo la msika lomwe lingapindule bwino, litha kupititsa patsogolo ntchito zokopa alendo.

Nkhondo yaku US ya blitz idachita bwino chimodzimodzi ndi gulu la zokopa alendo omwe adakumana ndi othandizana nawo kuti alimbikitse kuyenda kuchokera ku US North-eastern Seaboard, kuphatikiza New Jersey ndi Connecticut, mpaka ku Boston. Madam Speaker, tikugwira ntchito molimbika kuti achire; komabe, sitingathe kuchita popanda kuthandizidwa ndi omwe timagwira nawo ntchito kwanthawi yayitali ngati JetBlue ndi Flight Center Travel Group Limited (FLT), limodzi mwamagulu akuluakulu oyenda padziko lonse lapansi.

Potuluka pamsonkhano wapamwamba ndi gulu la utsogoleri wa JetBlue ku likulu lawo ku New York City, ndegeyo idalengeza kuti pofika Julayi chaka chino, ichulukitsa mipando pakati pa US ndi Montego Bay ndi 40 peresenti poyerekeza ndi July 2019. Kulimbikitsa kwakukulu ku Jamaica!

Madam Speaker, chotsatira china chachikulu cha ulendo wa ku Dubai chinali mgwirizano wosasunthika, womwe tsopano ukuwona Emirates Airlines, ndege yaikulu kwambiri ku Gulf Coast Countries (GCC), ikugulitsa mipando ku Jamaica. Dongosololi, lomwe ndi mbiri yakale ku Jamaica ndi Caribbean, limatsegula zipata zochokera ku Middle East, Asia ndi Africa kupita kuchilumba chathu ndi madera ena onse.

Aka ndi koyamba kuti Destination Jamaica alowe mumayendedwe a matikiti a ndege ya Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) ndipo amapatsa JTB mwayi wokwanira kukambirana maulendo apandege opita komwe akupita.

Onse a Norman Manley ndi Sangster International Airports tsopano alembedwa mumayendedwe apandege, ndipo mitengo yamatikiti ikupezeka moyenerera. Ndege zimaperekedwa ndi zosankha kuphatikiza JFK, New York, Newark, Boston ndi Orlando. Njira imodzi imadutsa ku Malpensa, Italy, kulola mwayi wopita ku msika waku Europe.

Mneneri, ngakhale tikuyesetsa kukopa osunga ndalama ambiri ochokera kumayiko ena, timayang'anabe kwambiri pakupanga malo oti athe kulimbikitsa kukula ndi chitukuko cha ogwira nawo ntchito zokopa alendo, kuphatikiza ma Enterprise ang'onoang'ono ndi apakatikati (SMTEs), kuti tikhazikitse gawo lophatikizana.

EXIM pakadali pano ikukonza ndalama zoonjezera zokwana $100 miliyoni pakufunsira ngongole pomwe gawo la zokopa alendo likuyambiranso.

Tikukhulupirira kuti kudzera mundondomekoyi yathandiza kwambiri pakukula kwachuma ku Jamaica kudzera mu ndalama zakunja kuchokera ku mabizinesi omwe akuchita nawo ntchito zokopa alendo ndikuwonetsetsa kuti ntchito pafupifupi 1,300 zikukhazikika. 

Madam Speaker, pamene tikugwira ntchito yomanga chilengedwe chotukuka komanso chophatikizana cha ma SMTE athu, ndili wokondwa kulengeza kuti TEF ikupita patsogolo ndi Tourism Incubator. Gulu logwira ntchito lakhazikitsidwa ndi anthu osiyanasiyana okhudzidwa kuti atsogolere kukhazikitsidwa kwa chofungatira ndi cholinga chokhala ndi kuyitana koyamba kwa malingaliro kumapeto kwa chaka chandalama.

Mumva zambiri pazaukadaulo wa chofungatira m'masabata akubwerawa.

Pamene tikupitiliza kuyika patsogolo kukulitsa kuchuluka kwa ma SMTE akumaloko, TEF posachedwapa idachita Msonkhano Wachidziwitso Zachitukuko cha Bizinesi pamabizinesi ofunikirawa omwe amayendetsa 80 peresenti ya phindu la zokopa alendo padziko lonse lapansi.
