Jamaica celebrates groundbreaking of hospitality training facility

Ground has been broken at SuperClubs' Grand Lido Braco in Trelawny, Jamaica, for the construction of a training facility for Jamaican graduate students studying hospitality, business, administration and entertainment.

The facility will be operated by the Heart Trust/NTA, Jamaica's human resources and training organization, and by the Recycling Inspiration, an international brand marketing company.

The initiative, called the RI Fellows Exchange Program (RI-FEP), is seen as key to the destination's tourism industry, according to Aloun N'dombet Assamba, minister of tourism, entertainment and culture.

"The success of this program will be the success of Jamaica's hospitality industry," Assamba said.

SuperClubs has committed to providing more than 300 job opportunities to students who complete the courses at the new facility.
