Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves is leading a five-member delegation on an official visit to the north African nation of Morocco.
Elson Crick, communications consultant in the Office of the Prime Minister, said the visit is at the invitation of the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI,
The other members of the delegation are Gonsalves’ wife, Eloise Gonsalves; St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ Ambassador to the United Nations, Rhonda King; Chairman and CEO of the International Airport Development Company, Rudolph Mathias; and Inspector Adrian Francois of the Prime Minister’s Security Detail.
The Prime Minister will hold discussions with top-level officials in Morocco, on a wide range of mutually agreed matters, including airport development, education and training, Crick said.
The delegation left St. Vincent on Friday and is expected to return on March 27.
what has he gone there for anyway, scrounging to finish the airport because they have run out of cash again and are frightened to tell us outright.
He has taken the airport manager with him, that Mathias characture. Thats for they airport scrounge.
He has taken the UN ambassador with him, thats for repayment by way of voting in favor of Morocco.
He has taken his wife with him ?
He has taken Elson Crick?
The policeman Adrain Franceos?
Who else has he taken?
Why all this expensive crap again?
Those we will hear of are who are leaving SVG, we will never hear If there are persons leaving Dominica, N.Y. and the U.K. to meet at that location.
How sad that this government always has to beg for money from poorer countries than us because it has cut ties with or antagonized countries like Canada, the USA, and Great Britain.
These three countries also represent our top tourist arrivals today and our main market tomorrow but have contributed precious little to the Argyle project because they know a boondoggle when they see one.
When things seem like they can’t get worse, they get worse with this overseas beggar-bowl trip.
By the way, any truth to the rumour circulating that Herbie Young will soon announce his independent candidacy in Central Leeward to split the NDP vote and allow Sir Lewis to win by a slim majority?
Is this another masterstroke or just a sign of more desperation?
As usual when his head is hot at home he runs on a world tour.
This trip is for one purpose only: to mislead the public that he has countries lined up to “finish” the airport.
His Administration previously told us they had lined up monies from Mexico, Cuba, Libya and Venezuela for the Argyle Airport.
Turns out none of that was true. They fooled us once before. Now they expect to do so again.
So how gullible are we?
The PM previously gave indication that he was “in talks” with Delta Airlines about coming to Argyle. As a longtime Delta investor, I wrote Delta the to get the truth. I was told that claim was incorrect.
We are likely to get the same thing from this Morocco trip.
David, what an appropriate word, boondoggle. It’s like lollygag, which is what you would describe Gonsalves trip to Morocco.
Boondoggle, Lollgag, what wonderful words to describe Wun Phatt Pratt and his projects.
He is lollygaging in office, with his boondoggling projects.
Let me guess, the King of Morocco will be on the first flight too the new AIA…… Ralph will meet him somewhere and they fly in together
