The Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Local Government, Housing and Community Development, Premila Kumar yesterday hosted the 12 winning towns and cities pageant Queens to a morning tea.
The event was an opportunity for Kumar to officially meet and congratulate the Queens and to also remind them of the important role they play as advocates and ambassadors in their own communities.
“You have a very important role to play in society. While you are the face of your community, you must also be their voice. Be the voice for the voiceless and the needy and advocate for what is good for your community,” Kumar said.
The Minister also encouraged the Queens to work closely with their respective Municipal Councils in improving their towns and cities.
