PM meets with Tobago's business community on transport problems

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and a high-powered ministerial team will sit today for talks with the business community in Tobago.

Stakeholders in Tobago told the T&T Guardian they will be going to the talks armed with folders of documents on just how the island, which is dependent on the tourism product, has suffered in the past year because of problems on the seabridge which contributed to problems on the airbridge.

The ministerial team which will accompany the pm to the meeting are Finance Minister Colm Imbert, Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan, Planning Minister Camille Robinson-Regis, Tourism Minister Shamfa Cudjoe and Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat.

The talks were requested by the Tobago-arm of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in the face of a worsening situation with the economy and in the hope of finding workable solutions to get the island back on track.
