House of Representatives


5th Session of the 11th Republican Parliament

Consider the Opposition Leader's proposals of an Economic Master Plan

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.
