(Trinidad Guardian) Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday reiterated that Government intends to restructure struggling state-owned energy company Petrotrin, especially in the face of tough economic times.
He also warned People’s National Movement (PNM) MPs that after Labour Day on June 19 he will be examining their “score cards” to ensure they are working for the good of their constituencies.
These were among announcements made to party supporters and activists at the PNM’s sport and family day at the Eddie Hart Savannah, Tacarigua, yesterday.
On the issue of Petrotrin, Dr Rowley said the country is looking for new ways of earning revenue.
“That is why we are looking towards the restructuring of Petrotrin. We are looking towards improving the role of the National Gas Company (NGC) because these are two of the main state agencies throughout the main aspect of our economy that contribute on the revenue side,” he said.
“Last week, after waiting very patiently for the report from the committee that examined Petrotrin, I want to give the country the assurance that all the recommendations made with respect to the health of Petrotrin, as long as they find favour with the Government, those recommendations will be implemented in the shortest possible order.”
