This is one of the letters which I have written to
Prime Minister Rowley over the past 5 years.
Dear Prime Minister
Happy Carnival to you?
This is your 17th month as the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago and you are still underperforming in my survey of one.
I am particularly interested in us making positive strides in the area of tourism as a vehicle for diversification of the economy. In the short term, there are few quick wins but much can be done in the medium to long term. Here are two suggestions:
- Publicise the terms and conditions being given to Sandals and offer the identical terms and conditions to all potential investors in building new plant.
(This will serve to mute any dissenting voices about lack of transparency, favouritism and back room dealings).
- Ensure that Sandals or their representatives begin the EIA process publicly leading to the publication of the final EIA when it is granted.
(This will demonstrate your commitment to minimising long term environmental impacts and demonstrate your further commitment to transparency and accountability.)
Yours for our country!
