Government To Honor Long Standing Vendors For Their Contribution To The Tourism Industry

11

The government held extensive discussions on vending in the city of St. John’s and on the beaches of Antigua and has decided to honor long-standing vendors for their contribution to advancing the tourism industry.

In addition, these vendors will receive special treatment in the upcoming plans the government has to change the look of vending in Antigua.

The discussions also covered the issues with vending and proposals of changes.

The challenge to making the city appear less cluttered, and to end the unsightly shacks and other makeshift covers that transform beautiful beaches into untidy places, continue to attract the Cabinet’s attention.

It was noted that in several Caribbean tourism destinations, vendors—just like taxi-drivers—are dressed uniformly; they are also trained in customer relations and to prepare annual statements of profit and loss.

Vendors are also assigned a limited number of spots, especially so on beaches.

For example, the vendors on Long Bay are the best examples of order and aesthetically-pleasing layout of small, brightly painted shops.

Going forward, the government plans to hold meetings with vendors to discuss a method of moving forward that would benefit vendors and the tourism product.

  1. What a WONDERFUL initiative. This Government is looking out for the local Vendors. As I am writing I am also listening Observer AM with.D.Gisel Isaac. I finally came to the conclusion that this Lady should NOT be around POLITICS. The UPP should fire this Lady. She does NOT know how to give compliments. D.Gisel Isaac CANNOT find one good thing done by this Administration. The UPP would not go further with these People at the helm. D.Gisel Isaac and Harold Lovell should leave POLITICS . They are doing Their Party and Antiguans a TOTAL DIS-SERVICE. Long Lived Hon.Gaston Browne and ABLP.

    • look up the word “bitter” in the dictionary and you will see her name there. Same goes for “badmind” and “sour gripe”

  2. Gaston should mandate ALL BEACH V ENDORS TO BUILD LITTLE HUTS NICELY PAINTED all lined up beautifully on the beaches …..

    IT WOULD DO WONDERS FOR THEM and the overall attitudes will change ..look good feel good…

  3. D. Gisele will always be the enemy of a ppl who are Oblivious to truth… Too late I predict will be most of our cries.. Ms Isaac sees things for what they are while a bunch of us run around worshipping the beautiful clothes of a naked Emperor!!!

    • Ms. Isaacs has univision, she only see things one way, like the five islands campus as a watered down version of the UWI. These people are so irrelevant it’s not funny. But keep up the chatter, it’s good entertainment for some.

    Yet you prefer to find some small issue to blow out of proportion to justify your need for the sky to be falling. Boss we live in a blessed though imperfect country

  6. WOW @Johnny Harris, I don’t know this lady like that but EVIL is a very strong word to use. Why are you calling her evil? How does she measure up with real EVIL people like Saddam Hussein, Heinrich Himmler, Osama Bin Laden,Vlad Tepes, Joseph Stalin, or my personal fav Adolf Hitler …Or is this just a political thing?

    And what does you being in the same classroom with her husband at Grammar school have to do with anything?
