Significant changes are about to affect tourism in Jamaica, including the opening of a convention center, increased air traffic to Montego Bay, and Falmouth becoming a leading destination. The possibility of casino gaming is another factor that would make Jamaica even more enticing to many visitors. "Casino legislation is currently in the works, but Jamaica will not become a casino destination," said Edmund Bartlett, minister of tourism for Jamaica. "It will be just one attraction of many. We're not envisioning stand-alone casinos right now but three casinos embedded in the wider development of the area."
