Royal Caribbean International is strengthening its commitment to The Bahamas, signing a new agreement with the island nation to help grow tourism and develop talent in the country.

Prime Minister of the Bahamas Perry Christie and Royal Caribbean president and CEO Perry Christie signed the agreement at a ceremony in the Bahamas yesterday.

The cruise line plans to invest in hospitality training to develop local talent. Thousands of students will get a chance to learn from Royal Caribbean dedicate instructors who will “provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge to help them develop valuable and marketable hospitality skills,” it said in a statement. All students will get on-site guidance and training from Royal’s staff.

“It is our responsibility to contribute to the country’s economic diversity, to its employment base and the training of Bahamian youth as well as the protection of the environment,” Bayley said.

At the signing ceremony, Bayley also unveiled Royal’s plans for updates to CocoCay, including the construction of a new pier and the addition of more local vendors and craftsmen.
