The review of this year’s 60th anniversary of carnival has been completed and a report has been compiled, which will be submitted to the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda next week.
Minister with responsibility for the summer festival, E P “Chet” Greene told Cabinet Wednesday that he was in receipt of the report, but due to its “voluminous” content “had not been fully digested”.
Greene informed his Cabinet colleagues that he would review the document and make an oral presentation at next Wednesday’s sitting.
This year’s diamond jubilee celebration has been touted as the largest in the history of the festival, with more visitors and participants taking part in the revellery.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet was also informed by Minister Greene that a draft cultural policy has been submitted by the newly employed consultant, Lisa Callender of Protrade Consultancy – a Jamaican firm.
He will also update Cabinet on the contents of the policy document next Wednesday.
Callender was hired by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and heads the recently created National Cultural Policy project.
