Economist: Venezuelans could cause mini-boom

An economist believes Venezuela nationals will not deprive T&T citizens of jobs.

Commenting on the registration process that is set to begin for Venezuelans in T&T at the end of May, Dr Rodger Hosein tells CNC3 News this could bolster the local economy, especially as it relates to labour productivity.

Once registered and approved, these Venezuela nationals will be allowed to work in the country for up to a year.

Many locals have expressed skepticism over the initiative as they believe there are not enough job opportunities.

However, Dr Hosein is of the view that the registration will boost the T&T economy, once the Government strategically manages the process.
