Antigua and Barbuda’s Festivals Minister Daryll Matthew has announced that the paying of prize monies for 2019 is well underway.
Speaking on radio today, the Festivals Minister said that the public will recognise that prize monies for some events were paid out on stage.
Minister Matthew also indicated that within the next few days, the rest of the prize monies will be handed over to the various winners, to be followed by the service providers.
” What we are trying to do, is to settle all the debts for 2019 and work our way backwards with regards to settling all the outstanding debts,” the minister said.
“To date the strategy has been proven to be somewhat successful,” he further stated.
” We acknowledge that we owe service providers and we will settle those debts, but it is not something that can be cleared up immediately.”
