Minister of State in the Ministry of Education Dr Lovell Francis has warned that Trinidad and Tobago is facing a "watershed" economic moment and must develop its human capital if it is to prevent economic ruin.
Speaking at Tobago's second consultation on the Draft Education Policy Paper 2017-2012 at the Victor E. Bruce Financial Complex in Scarborough on Tuesday, November 27, Lovell said the country's educators must create a policy to drive economic change.
Faced with a $1 increase per litre in the price of Super unleaded fuel, fishermen from South Trinidad are calling on the Government to establish an outlet so they can purchase regular fuel at a cheaper price.
Regular fuel is a lower grade of fuel compared to super unleaded and premium unleaded. However, only two outlets in Santa Flora and Carenage sell regular fuel and since the price increase, fishermen say they can no longer afford to buy Super gas.
