Prime Minister rolls out new appointments


Prime Minister Dean Barrow held his first full press conference in months earlier this week. On Wednesday the PM did some house cleaning and announced the appointment of new members of his administration.


Dean Barrow

“Since a continued and comprehensive information flow to the media and the public is so essential, I have appointed a new Press Secretary/Communications Director for the Office of the Prime Minister.  He is Ambassador Bert Tucker who moves now from the Ministry of Foreign Trade to this new assignment. He will share contact details with you at the end of this briefing and he will of course be the go-to-guy in regard to positions coming out of the Office of the Prime Minister.  His position is of course separate and apart from the Government Press Office. Now, the Director of the Government Press Office remains up to this point Mrs. Alyssa Noble Carnegie. But she will soon be moving on to, what I hear are greener pastures, and we will announce her replacement immediately after that happens. Mrs. Amparo Masson has taken up her position as the government’s business development officer and liaison to the private sector. You know that our Manifesto laid great emphasis on the central importance; the business community must play in this U.D.P. second term. And now there is a formal public sector [and] private sector structure in place to give practical life and impetus to the partnership. Mrs. Masson appointment will help to ensure the realization of the deliveries that we—business and government—are setting for ourselves.”
