Mas trade mission to Europe declared a success
The historic National Carnival Development Foundation (NCDF)/Mas Transformation Secretariat Trade Mission to Europe successfully concluded with business opportunities for T&T mas practitioners. The six participating delegates reported three definite work arrangements, and eight very likely arrangements with mas bands in Rotterdam, as well as the opportunity to return to Paris, France, within two months to participate in a special Carnival venture.
NCDF chairman Mahindra Satram-Maharaj said he is extremely pleased that the hard work, immense financial resources from state enterprises and months of planning have borne fruit. “This is just the beginning,” he declared, adding that discussions are already under way for Mas Trade & Tourism Mission 2015.
