Rowley meets Tobago stakeholders today

PRIME Minister Dr Keith Rowley will host a media conference at 4 pm today after his meeting with seabridge stakeholders at the Magdalena Grand Ballroom, Lowlands Tobago. This according to a statement yesterday from his press secretary Arlene Goring-George.

A previous statement from the Office of the Prime Minister said the meeting will begin at 2 pm and will discuss the unsuccessful attempt to find a replacement passenger ferry to service the seabridge between Trinidad and Tobago.

Those invited to attend include the Tobago Chamber of Commerce, the Tobago Hoteliers and Tourism Association, the Tobago Truckers Association and the Tobago Unique Bread and Breakfast and Self-Catering Association. Also due to attend are Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan, Tobago West MP Shamfa Cudjoe and Tobago East MP Ayanna Webster-Roy. Rowley has expressed his “great disappointment” at the saga leading to the termination of the contract for the passenger ferry Ocean Flower II.

Meanwhile truckers spokesmen have recently complained of an infestation of roaches and rats in the cargo ferry, Cabo Star. The route is otherwise serviced by the passenger fast ferries, TT Express and TT Spirit, but the latter is now on dry dock.
