- Hilton Trinidad is owned by somebody/somebodies; and,
- such body/bodies is/are not the State of Trinidad and Tobago!
Regarding 2. above, if you doubt me, then doubt the Ministry of Finance listing of all the local enterprises which are wholly or partly owned (and or controlled) by the government of Trinidad and Tobago, as at April 12, 2011! Trinidad Hilton is nowhere to be found!
To facilitate the readers, I've downloaded the relevant pdf report, which I'll email to you if you include your email address in the comments box and which. mind you, is posted and viewable on the Internet at http://www.finance.gov.tt/
So, I fail to understand how the local media did not check that before swallowing the bull fed to them by Mr. Ali Khan, Trinidad Hilton's General Manager:
As to the future though, I'd expect Trinidad Hilton won't be benefitting from the public purse anymore, for that purse we, the people, own!
A word of advice to Hilton Worldwide...before saying what Raul (pun intended) would say: "¡Punto final!"
Dear Hilton Worldwide!
You boast how your vision is:
How come, then, in this instance, you didn't allow your core values to guide you in this thing? No doubt, had you, you would have passionately remained owners of your actions by being a leader not a follower, something which you can neither be nor sustain unless you're a team player in the whatever community you operate and unless you have the sense of urgency and discipline to do the right thing all the time?
