Default King, Stewart spar over tourismís worth to economy

Controversy is brewing over the real value that the tourism sector adds to the overall economy.

Economist Dr Damien King suggested that the second-quarter data on the economyís performance during the COVID-19 pandemic were proof that tourism did not contribute as much as one-third of the economy, as was previously thought.

But deputy chairman of the Sandals Group, Adam Stewart, suggested that Kingís mathematics was simplistic and did not take into account other realities.

According to Stewart, many workers in the sectors continue to be paid while receivables are still being collected in the sector.
