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.
According to Mr Faria, Team Trinidad and Tobago needs all her players focussing on ending the crime scourge.
“Unless we all have a congruence of goals, we cannot fight the criminal elements in Trinidad and Tobago,” he says.
Circumstances “permitting,” there will be no cuts in the CEPEP labour force or contractors, said Local Government Minister Kazim Hosein yesterday.
Hosein said if the need arises, it may be reviewed, “but as of today there will be no cuts”. He stressed this during yesterday’s Standing Finance Committee scrutiny of the 2020 Budget.
