Minister Mitchell speaks on Tourism Trinidad Ltd
The Minister of Tourism, the Honourable Randall Mitchell, has taken note of statements published in an article in today’s Saturday Express (July 13th, 2019) to the effect that at an Annual General Meeting held in February 2019, the Board of Tourism Trinidad Limited was mandated by representatives of the Ministry of Finance to serve for another two years.
It is noteworthy that Cabinet at its meeting of August 17, 2017 accepted the recommendation of the Minister of Finance that the Board of Directors of Tourism Trinidad Limited be appointed for a period of two years, i.e. until August 2019
Accordingly, the Minister of Finance (Corporation Sole) is investigating the matter to determine the origin and authorisation of any other development which purports to have occurred outside of the necessary Cabinet oversight.
