Martin George: Forget about Tobago Carnival for 2022

Head of the Tobago Business Chamber, Martin George, strongly believes Government should forget about staging any kind of Carnival activity for 2022, especially for Tobago. “The time frame left for planning and putting on any semblance of a carnival 2022 is insufficient and therefore, safe zone or not, carnival 2022 should not be a major consideration for Trinidad and Tobago, but more so Tobago,” George argues. According to George, not enough thought has gone into the planning of any of the events being proposed at present. “It does not appear realistic or feasible to push ahead with this half-baked duck of an idea...

Tobago Chamber: Carnival safe zone events not practical at this time

The Tobago Business Chamber is urging the Government to focus its energies on other pressing matters, instead of pushing ahead with its proposed “Taste of Carnival”. The safe zone Carnival events would allow certain Carnival activities for vaccinated persons only in safe zone arrangements deemed to pose the smallest potential COVID-19 risk. Chairman of the Tobago Business Chamber Martin George questioned why Government would move ahead with these plans when T&T was experiencing record COVID-19 daily totals. Just yesterday, more than 1,000 new virus were reported – the highest number of infections recorded since the first case was detected in March 2020. George noted...

Tobago Business Chamber questions rationale behind Carnival safe zones

The Tobago Business Chamber has questioned the Government’s rationale for sanctioning Carnival safe-zone events in light of the “record numbers of covid19 cases” and the apparent lack of interest among bandleaders, promoters and performers. On Wednesday, after months of consultation with stakeholders, the Government gave the go-ahead for strictly concert-type events. The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and the Arts said these include soca and calypso concerts, calypso tents, soca, calypso and extempo and chutney competitions, steelband concerts, Carnival king and queen shows and Carnival theatre. The ministry made it clear that no fetes/parties will be permitted, owing to the increased spread of covid19. On...

We need to improve that,” he said. “These are...
