Pan Trinbago needs $25 million to bring off the planned International Conference and Panorama (ICP) scheduled for August 2015.
The organisation’s president, Keith Diaz, made the announcement yesterday at a news conference at the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.
Diaz said his line ministry (Arts and Multiculturalism) told him he should get the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Tourism involved in the project.
The purpose of the conference is to establish an International Organisation for Pan with its headquarters in Trinidad and Tobago.
Ground work for the conference is ongoing and Pan Trinbago has been talking with interested countries. The delegates at the conference will choose an executive for this International Organisation.
The steelband in the Mecca is where all energies should be, the conference should be on how to make them self sufficient.
The Steelpan is not in danger, the Steelband is.
I found these comments from the Express article quite interesting...
Interesting indeed, the funny thing is that these people make the government look like the stupid ones for funding their activities.
pan trinbago need to have an executive election.....forget the pan trinbago distraction....they have to find the money in the private sector....
