Antigua and Barbuda is once again being showcased at one of the premier global tourism business events World Travel Market (WTM) taking place in Excel London from November 6th to 8th.

  1. Can anyone answer how Alan Hosam received that position, what qualifications does he have to be in that position?

  2. Funny how people in power bring in family members and give them all these big positions to travel the world, live the big life and yet what qualifications do they have to get these positions??! !!!Nothing but being a relative, smh, what a ting, only in Antigua

  3. Is not just Alan Hosam, his sister Nicole is on the Tourism Board too. Niece and nephew. Duncing Max and his duncer family! We like it so!

    • Absolutely correct @ Nepotism. 👏🏾

      I’ve said that nepotism in Antigua has been detrimental to economic growth and progress. Obtaining a high profile job because of being related to someone is just plain wrong and shown to be destructive.

      I’ve read that in some Boroughs in the United Kingdom, that when you fill in any job applications, you must declare if you have any close relatives working there as well.

      These Boroughs in the UK know that fraud can be covered up to protect relatives, auditing/documentation can be hidden or mysteriously disappear; and openness and transparency easily kept away from public scrutiny.

      One of the main reasons for Antigua’s stagnation.


  4. Massa great grand children went over to the other side of the pond to sit , eat and drink to then encourage massa great grand children to come over so you black folks can serve them.
