The Manchester Chamber of Commerce will, on October 20, stage another in the series of ‘Life After Bauxite’ seminars, at the Golf View Hotel, in Mandeville.
Slated to begin at 5:15 p.m., the seminar will expose persons in attendance to the current and potential scope of community tourism, the requisites for entering the sector, what it takes to be an active and relevant player in the marketplace, and the available support systems.
The Chamber has identified four areas of focus to play a significant role in the post bauxite era – Health Services, Community Tourism, Agriculture/Greenhouse Technology/Tissue Culture and the Knowledge based industry. The first seminar held in July looked at agriculture.
Guest speaker at the upcoming event will be Executive Director of the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), Mr. Ian Neita. The seminar is open to the public.
The seminars, held quarterly, are a response of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce to the downturn in the bauxite/alumina sector, and are geared at helping persons to channel resources and energy into other industries to keep the economy of the parish vibrant.
