Tobago autonomy ‘gimmickry’

Chairman of the Tobago Business Chamber Martin George is calling on Tobago to put aside its obsession with self-governance and focus first on its economic independence. In a video sent via WhatsApp on Monday, George said if Tobago gets financial independence, all others would fall into place. George said it is “unfortunate and regrettable” that there seems to be an imbroglio over the question of the Tobago autonomy bill. “The fact of the matter is that when one considers the scenario in Tobago, the more important aspects that persons should be focussing on is to try to ensure that there is economic and...

Tobago association advises hoteliers to take Government ‘s grant terms

Chairman of the Tobago Business Chamber Martin George says Tobago hoteliers should accept Government’s terms and conditions to access the $50 million COVID-19 hotels’ upgrade grant facility. In a statement on Saturday, the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association (THTA) expressed disappointment over the distribution of the grant. The association said: “We reject the proposed grant distribution outright.” THTA said the grant gave hoteliers with less room more money and made the criteria for accessing the funds, burdensome. ‘This could be the end for many small and medium-sized businesses, most of whom were already suffering before the pandemic hit Trinidad and Tobago,” the hotel association...

CEO of the TT Chamber Gabriel Faria last week criticised he Government's...

Health Secretary Tracy Davidson-Celestine said the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Executive Council remains functioning in the absence of a sitting chief secretary. Davidson-Celestine was responding to attorney Martin George’s view that since the resignation of Kelvin Charles, the non-appointment of a new chief secretary has rendered the Executive Council dormant. In a WhatsApp voice note on Friday, George said the existing THA Act does not address the voluntary resignation of a sitting chief secretary. “At this point, there is no Executive Council of the THA in existence because under the THA Act, it specifically states that the Executive Council comprises the chief...

George: Don’t judge landlords

Tobago Chamber chairman Martin George says the Government cannot mandate that landlords be lenient to tenants who cannot pay their rent because of the covid19 stay-at-home restrictions. During a news conference at the Diplomatic Centre last Saturday, the Prime Minister urged landlords to "have a heart" as the Government extended the stay-at-home order to at least May 10. Borders are also expected to remain closed until May 15. In a WhatsApp voice note on Wednesday, George said the Government's appeal to landlords is not a "legal imposition. "It is not something that can be legally enforced. It is basically a request for landlords...
