Congratulations to Minister of Tourism Mitchell | Letters to the Editor


Mighty, shrewd and illustrious exemplify this government’s care and commitment to the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

Recent developments allow us to delve into another dazzling endeavor where the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts has signed a Memorandum of Understanding for Nationals, now adding value to employment benefits through the seas.

Having these dialogues helps us appreciate what is seen as an economically viable solution.

Royal Caribbean International is one of the largest cruise lines in the world. They set out to absorb the talent found on our shores. For this reason, measuring impact starts with seeing efforts to promote our tourism product.

The investment made for nationals to be paid in US dollars would generate revenue in various sectors.

Cruise operations offer consumer products that leave room for a lot of creativity. Needless to say, the hospitality industry includes hotel management, culinary arts, entertainment, and several great career opportunities.

To date, 602 applicants have been confirmed, 822 interviews have been conducted out of 6,000 and what’s even more exciting is the exposure to the wider tourism database.

In addition, virtual interviews would be conducted for more accommodation.

Such progress is remarkable and very deserving for the development of sustainable tourism. This administration’s initiatives have a penchant for focusing on good governance and forward-thinking approaches.

We should consider what lies ahead and commend Randall Mitchell, Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts, for showing tremendous dedication, integrity, readiness and ingenuity to a service that fits very well.
