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.
Tobago businesses say they are concerned about the Tobago House of Assembly now having the ability to borrow money on the international market, and cannot endorse it.
That’s the word from Diane Hadad, of the Tobago arm of the T&T Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
During the recent presentation of the 2020 Budget, Finance Minister Colm Imbert announced that the Tobago House of Assembly would now have the ability to raise financing for Tobago development projects via bonds worth some US$300 million.
