CABINET NOTES:

The Cabinet invited several teams that are responsible for events production to appear before it.

The industry professionals reported that during the time of COVID, their equipment remained unused and as a consequence have now failed by simply not being used.

The industry professionals also indicated that the same experience has caused other industry specialists in other Caribbean countries to have their sound systems fail, their generators fail, their electric lights and other sensitive equipment to fail because of non-use during COVID.

Although 102 fetes have been approved and appear to be well supported, new equipment is needed quickly before their counterparts in these other Caribbean countries–that are holding Carnival around the same time–purchase the supplies that the Antiguan operators require.

Consequently, Cabinet was asked to provide a significant sum so that they may replace their non-working equipment by making good on debts owed to them from previous years.
