WHEREAS the Government is bungling the management of the human aspect of the COVID-19 crisis to the distress of citizens, a large number of whom is without work and struggle to put food on the table;
AND WHEREAS the emergency economic measures put in place to support businesses are not working and are having a devastating effect on general commerce especially small, medium and micro businesses;
AND WHEREAS citizens are fearful for their future and see no hope of recovery and prosperity under this Government post-COVID-19, especially given the state of the oil and gas sector, the loss of business confidence, little investment, continuous decline and lack of growth:
BE IT RESOLVED that this House agree that the Government should favourably consider the Leader of the Oppositionís proposals to the Prime Minister of an Economic Master Plan; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this House agree that the Government should facilitate a genuine bipartisan collaboration, towards a national policy for recovery and growth in Trinidad and Tobago.
