In an exclusive interview with GBN on Wednesday, Minister for Culture Ron Redhead, highlighted one of the developments to be expected for this years’ event.
The culture minister says one such improvement that they have already made is to ensure that the queen, once successful, can benefit from a scholarship to further their studies.
Government has long term plans to boost the carnival product, through private-public partnership with stakeholders.
