Gov’t in Sport Tourism push

“We hope very soon that some of our nationals would be able to graduate with degrees in sport management,” he said.

Rowley spoke yesterday at a large gathering of supporters of the PNM at its annual Family Fun Day held at the Eddie Hart Ground, Tacarigua.

In Tobago, he said, discussions were held this morning with Sandals Resort and one aspect of the project is the development of a world class golf course.


Noting there are two other golf courses in Tobago, he said that when the Sandals project is completed, the golf courses would complement those in Barbados and Jamaica so that the Caribbean can host international golfing tournaments at the highest level.

The prime minister further assured that recommendations on the way forward for Stateowned Petrotrin will be implemented in the shortest possible time, once they are acceptable.

As he addressed party supporters, he urged them to hold their members of Parliament accountable, advising that sometimes the elected reprepresentatives ‘need guidance’.

He also reminded elected MPs and other party members that the PNM also represented all of Trinidad and Tobago and as a government they are to take that responsibility seriously.

According to Rowley, citizens of TT put the PNM in government and if not handled carefully, they [citizens] would take the Government out of office.
