Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has met with a high-level executive team from the Canadian-based Sunwing Travel Group, just weeks after Sunwing began a service from Toronto, Canada to Tobago.
The meeting took place yesterday at the Diplomatic Centre, St Anns.
The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said that Chief Executive Officer Stephen Hunter, Vice President Daniel Diaz and Executive Vice President, Business Affairs Sabah Mirza represented Sunwing at the meeting.
The statement by the OPM said discussions focused on Sunwing’s interest in an increased presence in Tobago including an interest in the operations of the state-owned Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort.
Sunwing Travel Group, which is the largest integrated travel company in North America, recently acquired a chain of Rex Resorts’ Caribbean hotels and is now the owner of Turtle Beach Hotel in Tobago.
Minister of National Security, Communications and Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, Stuart Young, Minister of Tourism, Randall Mitchell and Minister of Planning and Development, Camille Robinson-Regis also attended the meeting.
