A historic meeting was held between the Honourable Asot Michael, Antigua and Barbuda's Minister of Tourism, Economic Development Investment and Energy and Ontario's Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, the Honourable Michael Coteau, at Minister Coteau's Bay Street office during Minister Michael's recent visit to Toronto.
In attendance at the meeting of the Ministers were Mr. Rohan Hector, Special Advisor to the Minister and Chairman of the St. Johns Development Corporation, Mr. Colin James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority and Antigua and Barbuda Consul General in Toronto, Ms. Ann-Marie Layne.
Minister Michael brought greetings to Minister Coteau on behalf of the government and people of Antigua and Barbuda and both leaders readily agreed that many Antiguans and Barbudans living in Toronto helped build the Canadian economy. Coteau, who is of Grenadian heritage, was reminded by Michael of the close relationship Antigua and Barbuda and Grenada enjoys through the 7-nation Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, (OECS) and the need for Canada to strengthen that bond.
