Angela Bassett agrees to have discussions with the Government about what Ambassador role would entail


Actress and producer Angela Bassett has had a long friendship and history with Antigua and Barbuda.

Recently, she took the opportunity to visit and share her appreciation and love for the destination with residents and officials alike.

Angela Bassett states, “I have a long-standing relationship with Antigua and Barbuda, and I recently had an opportunity to visit. I loved spending time with the wonderful people and experiencing the local culture. I was honored by the offer to bestow upon me the title of Tourism Ambassador and have agreed to have discussions with the Government about what this would entail. Because I do not take this opportunity or role lightly, I want to make sure my team and I fully understand what the Tourism Ambassador scope and activities will mean. We look forward to continuing the conversation.”

Ms. Bassett would be the ideal choice to represent Antigua and Barbuda to help promote the destination to visitors around the world. However, formal discussions have not taken place with Ms. Bassett and her team about what this would specifically entail. The first step is ensuring approval from the Cabinet, where the suggestion for naming Ms. Bassett a Tourism Ambassador was passed. As the next step, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda will continue discussions with Ms. Bassett and her team about what this designation will mean, ensuring that all proper procedures are followed.

As a headlining star with a busy schedule, Ms. Bassett has honoured us with her presence. We trust that we will be able to formalize our relationship within the coming year.

  1. Thank you! Now this wasn’t very hard, was it?
    A simple, clear and rational explanation that’s easy
    to understand — It left no room for speculation or assumptions. A responsible approach taken by those involved — Looking forward to more of this in the future.

  2. So is this a reset ? Also in reading this Article It sounds like the government did jump the gun and used her name before having a discussion with her. I can remember recently that the NBA basketball and the track star with Antiguan ties were appointed sporting Ambassadors by Cabinet. They went through the formal procedures .

  3. Gaston Browne and his Tourism Minister jumped the gun.Then Gaston threw his Minister under the roller.

  4. This is a weak attempt at damage control. This is just heeding what her lawyer said, without acknowledging it. Why not meet with her attorney first, sort things out and then make an announcement? This ambassadorship is going nowhere.

  5. Who is saying all this, ANR? Is it you, or is it a release from Government. You did not say. sounds like it is reporting coming from ou
