Individuals were taught the importance of customer service, proper etiquette, and hospitality techniques and are now able to provide the highest quality of service that mirrors local and international standards.

Meanwhile, as the country modernises its way of promoting tourism, GTA has been going above and beyond to facilitate several training sessions and also helping various regions to implement new tourism products.

Additionally, training sessions are also being conducted by the Small Business Bureau (SBB) in each region.

The agency is also helping to cushion some of the small businesses by providing grants in different amounts.
