“The sector is blossoming again. The tourism product is finding its way into the Surinamese society and is able to create an increasingly broad base of support within all layers of the population.”
The SHATA was able to proudly present her achievements during the whole year, while still having new, innovative ongoing projects.
Now that the year is almost over, the SHATA will have a new and improved plan, together with her loyal members.
“Only with the support of the sector can we ensure that SHATA will grow even more and develop qualitatively further”, says Zaandam.
