(ZIZ News) — Minister of Tourism, the Hon. Lindsay Grant has announced new decisions taken surrounding the annual St. Kitts Music Festival.
On Tuesday, Minister Grant said he plans to publicize the accounts of this year’s festival.
“I have given a directive to the team to produce to me, for the first time, the accounts of the Music Festival for 2015. And I say to you that those accounts will be placed in this Honourable House for public scrutiny,” he said.
He also spoke of the move to have locals be responsible for the festival’s video production.
“I want to inform this Honourable House that as I said for the last 19 years have outsourced the filming to foreign entities for millions of dollars. And this year for the first time ever, we made sure that young people in this country were a part of it and they did all of the filming, keeping all the money here for young people to make sure that young people advance in this country,” he said.
Minister Grant said Team Unity will continue to keep the young people’s best interest at heart. He therefore urged the youth population to believe in the Government of National Unity.
