Welcome to the Ministry of Tourism, Environment, Heritage, Maritime and Gaming

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you, to the website of the Ministry of Tourism, Environment, Heritage, Maritime, Gaming and Disaster Management.

Tourism is the mainstay of our economy and is anticipated to remain well into the future. We are at a critical stage in our tourism development and every effort must be taken to protect our citizenry and our natural environment.

The importance of Tourism to the economy of the Turks and Caicos is well known and cannot be overstated. Our destination has seen exponential growth across all niches of the Tourism sector over the last several years. My Government through the endorsement of the National Tourism Sector Strategy and three-year implementation plan provides a coherent policy framework that will guide the sector to achieve inclusive growth and sustainable development.

I invite you to learn more about our Ministry, our industry, policies and programs and look forward to your continued support and interest.

Minister of Tourism
Honorable Ralph L. Higgs
