Heritage laws up for discussion
KEY PLAYERS IN the heritage sector are meeting at the Radisson Aquatica Hotel over the next two days to consult on heritage legislation for the country.
Addressing the opening session of the meeting this morning, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley spoke to the importance of having sound legal grounding when looking to protect the country’s heritage.
The workshop is sponsored by the Organisation of American States, which has identified several areas where the region is lacking and has already put systems in place to fill those deficits. Academic training, legislation and the development of sound inventory systems are among areas to be addressed. (YB)
