The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts in a press release stated that it had full confidence in the Ministry of Education in resolving the issues – the main one being financing.

It stated, “The ministry can confirm that there are a range of other publicly funded and private institutions that provide educational and training programmes for the hospitality and tourism sector, both in Trinidad as well as in Tobago and these organisations have so far been well managed to the appropriate standards, are creative, resilient and continue in operation notwithstanding  the disruptive effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The ministry stated, “ Given the present circumstances, it is even more important now that those given responsibility for the management of state funds ensure that value for money is obtained and that the management of the institution  is held to appropriate standards of good governance.”

The TTHTI had claimed that it was unable to receive the necessary funding for the institution  that has been in existence for decades while the Ministry of Education has stated that the TTHTI failed to account for millions of dollars spent hence the reason why subventions had ceased.
