HILAIRE SAYS PUBLIC HAS THE RIGHT TO INFORMATION AND INVESTORS HAVE RIGHT TO CONFIDENTIALITY
Information Minister Hon. Ernest Hilaire at Monday’s [Nov 14th] pre-cabinet press briefing told members of the media of the public’s right to information and transparency from the government. However, Hilaire noted that investors are also cautious of the information they release for public knowledge, and it is important for government to be that bridge when disseminating information. Dr. Hilaire’s comments come after repeated calls by the opposition United Workers Party to make details of the GPH deal public.
