Tourism is enjoying a boom and the industry is committed to reaching our Tourism 2025 $41 billion growth target. Now more than ever, we need smart insurance solutions tailored for our tourism industry, TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts says.
TIA believes this new partnership with JLT and AIG will be key to supporting and shaping the tourism industry to remain competitive and responsive to global marketplace changes.
This new partnership enhances the strong relationship TIA already has with JLT, one of the world's largest providers of insurance and employee benefits related advice, brokerage and associated services.
