Paradise Pulse (PP), T&T’s exciting,
new, online magazine went live at 9.30
am last Sunday at www.paradis-
At an elegant brunch held at Gaston
Court in Chaguanas to launch the mag-
azine, editor-in-chief, founder of the
magazine and attorney Chris Selochan
said PP would give the world a window
into T&T through the eyes and minds
of Trinidadians, while giving local con-
tributors a global audience.
Extending congratulations on behalf
of Minister of Tourism Gerald Hadeed
was new Tourism Development Com-
pany CEO Keith Chin. As he offered
the TDC’s support to Selochan, Chin
said: “This is a wonderful project which
will provide a new outlet in terms of
how T&T communicates about its
product to the world. I think we could
work together to develop new content.”
Chin suggested that Selochan support
the ministry’s thrust to develop com-
munity tourism. Noting that he had
just assumed a seat on the board of
the Caribbean Tourism Organisation
(CTO), he also urged PP to expand its
coverage to the wider Caribbean region.
“Wherever we can work together, we
will do that,” he said.
Giving remarks on behalf of Minister
of Science and Technology and Sports
Rupert Griffith was advisor Cornell
Buckradee who also congratulated
Selochan on the launch of the magazine,
extending his ministry’s support for
the endeavour, and describing it as very
timely since Cabinet, just this year, had
approved the next National ICT plan
2014-2018 for T&T.
Adding that PP would be creating
local digital content every month that
would be seen by the world, Buckradee
stressed: “So, you have a responsibility
to put the best of T&T and the
Caribbean on your Web site.”
Featuring an array of exciting, inter-
esting and thought-provoking articles,
interviews and videos, Selochan prom-
ised a Web site of high quality and con-
tent that would be “second to none.”
Other speakers at the launch included
communications and training consult-
ant Natasha Ramnauth; motivational
