Minister Young: Unusual method of request for meeting by business groups
It has only just come to my attention, via social media, that a number of business groups would like to meet with me.
I have not received any letter or email from these Chambers of Business for a meeting, so it was quite disturbing to see a media release circulating on social media calling for an urgent meeting with me, as Minister of National Security.
The following groups are referred to in the purported media release:
The Confederation of Regional Business Chambers (CRBC), which consists of twelve Regional Business Chambers, together with the Downtown Owners and Merchants Association (DOMA).
The twelve (12) Business Chambers that make up the Confederation are:
The San Juan Business Association
The Greater Tunapuna Chamber of Industry and Commerce
The Arima Business Association
The Sangre Grande Chamber of Commerce
The Chaguanas Chamber of Industry and Commerce
The Couva/Point Lisas Chamber of Commerce
The Gasparillo Chamber of Commerce
The Greater San Fernando Area Chamber of Commerce
The Penal/Debe Chamber of Commerce
The Siparia Chamber of Commerce
The Point Fortin Business Chamber
The Fyzabad Chamber of Commerce, as well as DOMA.
Despite this very strange way of communicating by these interest groups, I would like to invite them to meet with me on Wednesday 31 July, 2019 at 7:30 a.m. at the Ministry of National Security.
Stuart R. Young, M.P.
Minister of National Security
