fDi Tourism Locations of the Future 2017/18 – Editor’s Choice Awards

FDi‘s inaugural Tourism Editor’s Choice Awards for tourism single out the countries that have devised specific and successful strategies to attract investment. Belize, Croatia and Jamaica are just three of the countries punching above their weight, reports Cathy Mullan.


Located in Central America and bordered to the north by Mexico and in the south by Guatemala, Belize’s eastern coast is on the Caribbean Sea and is popular with tourists. The country has been awarded an Investment Award for Hotels owing to several hotel developments, including Hilton’s Mahogany Bay hotel, which cost between $50m and $65m, creating about 430 jobs.

Belize has also won the Enhanced Airlift award, in recognition of the targeted and increased efforts to attract new airlifts, as well as a Sustainability Strategy award. The Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry lobbies for a sustainable tourism framework, which aims to connect investors with opportunities in the national economy.


Twelve-and-a-half million people visited Croatia in 2015, attracted by its Adriatic Sea coastline. The country has been making progress on infrastructure to support increasing tourist numbers (international visitors increased at an average annual rate of more than 6% in the five years to 2015).

The reconstruction and extension of its airports, which includes a new €300m terminal building at the  Franjo Tuđman International airport in Zagreb, the reconstruction of airports in Split and Dubrovnik, as well as plans to construct the 2.5-kilometres-long Pelješac Bridge connecting the mainland to the Pelješac peninsula, helped Croatia win the editor’s choice award for Infrastructure Upgrades.
