Anup Chandiram Chairman of the Tourism Linkages Shopping Network

As Chairman of the Tourism Linkages Shopping Network, I am really excited about what the future has in store for shopping in Jamaica. Shopping is becoming an increasingly relevant component of the tourism value chain and has been converted into a determinant factor affecting destination choice, an important component of the overall travel experience and, in some cases the prime travel motivation. Style Jamaica, the inaugural shopping project of the Linkages programme is being organized to leverage this new market trend by developing authentic and unique shopping experiences that adds value to Jamaica’s touristic offer. Our goal is to transform Jamaica into the number one shopping destination in the Caribbean, offering the best in duty free items as well as high end fashion and accessories from local designers. Jamaica is at a tipping point with growth being the new paradigm and tourism the key component. Through the Tourism Linkages Network programme, the members of the Shopping Network have been working assiduously with policymakers to modernize respective legislations that regulate the shopping sector in Jamaica so as to ensure that they reflect the current realities of a global shopping marketplace. These amendments will also create new opportunities for local players in the fashion and shopping sectors to access the tourism market. I believe the “linkages� model will contribute greatly to achieving our national goals while positioning Jamaica as the premier shopping destination in the Caribbean.

viola Accessories is a home-based business, owned and operated by Melissa Preddie, a young entrepreneur from Mandeville, Manchester. Established in February 2013, Aviola specialises in the creation of handcrafted male and female accessories, fashioned from recycled Polyethylene (PET) [plastic] bottles and accentuated with semi-precious metals namely: brass, bronze copper and aluminum. The name ‘Aviola’ is a combination of the first initial of the entrepreneur’s middle name -Andrea and her mother and grandmother’s (now deceased) who shared the same middle name ‘Viola’. Both – strong, artistic and creative women – significantly influenced Melissa’s creativity from an early-age. The concept for Aviola emerged from Melissa’s recognition of the abundance of plastic bottles in the community and the negative impact on the environment. As an avid believer in recycling and observing that not many
