Private sector praised for generosity to flood victims
Senator the Honourable Paula Gopee-Scoon, Minister of Trade and Industry extends sincere gratitude to members of the business community for their spontaneous and immediate response to victims of the recent floods, bringing much needed relief to citizens throughout the country over the weekend.
According to the Minister, “The generous outpouring of relief supplies by all the business chambers, the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) and the Supermarkets Association, directly to the various shelters and faith-based organisations, is commendable.”
The Trade Minister noted that as the country moves forward, there would be need to support the rebuilding efforts. In this regard, she encouraged the private sector to strengthen their alliance with the regional corporations and faith-based organisations and, in a continued spirit of generosity, donate beds, appliances and building materials to those in need.
