Business community committed to helping end crime crisis

The Chief Executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce says the country needs all hands on deck to deal with the crime crisis.

Gabriel Faria says almost every citizen believes there is a crisis and that something must be done to take back T&T from the hands of criminals.

“Unless we all have a congruence of goals, we cannot fight the criminal elements in Trinidad and Tobago,” he says.
