Barbados’ premier attraction Harrison’s Cave may be operated by a highly-rated Jamaican tourism company.

The Saturday Sun understands that the leading tourism tour adventure company, Chukka, is the favoured tenderer to manage the St Thomas site.

Minister of Tourism Kerrie Symmonds neither confirmed nor denied the noted Jamaican entity had won the tender, but said Cabinet had “reflected on the recommendations and has made a decision (which) is now subject to negotiation with the intended concessionaire, and that negotiation will be done by a college of negotiators led by Anthony Audain QC.”

Symmonds explained the transaction was being done that way “because there are a number of very sensitive issues which I think have to be dealt with in the fullest glare of transparency”.  (GC)
