Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has dispelled claims which suggests that there was a "cloud of secrecy" surrounding a recent multinational tour to promote the island's CBI Program.
Addressing media this morning, Mr Skerrit said he made several references of this trip on at least three different occasions.
Mr. Skerrit says it is downright silly for anyone to suggest that in embarking on any marketing drive, he should divulge his detailed itinerary.
Mr Skerrit stressed the importance of the CBI Program, and says he is amazed by the " brazen ignorance" of those who do not understand the need for the direct marketing of programs like the CBI.
During the multination tour, PM Skerrit said he visited Europe, Asia and the United Arab Emirates.
