The Tourism Enhancement Fund; What's Next on the Horizon
On Thursday 6th September 2018, Trustees of the Tourism Enhancement Fund convened their monthly Board meeting to discuss matters relevant to the Fund. Among agenda items discussed were updates on a number of projects for TEF support. Trustees also reviewed updates on the institutional restructure of the TEF currently underway and discussed an urgent Strategic Planning exercise to guide the next five years of operations of the Fund. The Strategic Planning exercise is set to be conducted before December 2018.
The meeting received presentations from GIZ, NCA and the Dive Association on areas of possible collaboration with the TEF. Some of the initiatives receiving positive attention from Trustees were support for Beach Rangers, reduction in use of single use plastics, management of the hyperbaric chamber and construction of a vendor’s facility.
The meeting was attended by SLHTA Board Representatives Winston Anderson, Cheryl Skeete, John Mathurin, Sanovnik Destang, Ministry of Finance Representative Jeanette Jn Louis Hughes and presided over by Chairperson Karolin Troubetzkoy.
Emerging Priority Areas for Funding over the coming year include projects in the areas of:
- Environmental Issues
