Tobago’s Division of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment (DIQE) and the Eco-Industrial
Company of Tobago (E-IDCOT) are to partner on a number of infrastructural projects in
Tobago in coming fiscal year.
This follows work done by E-IDCOT’s management of the Windward Road ‘Hanging Down’ Project.
According to a statement from DIQE, in fiscal 2018, focused attention is required for areas in need of robust and green infrastructural solutions such as coastal erosion, land slippage, waste management, among others.
Secretary of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment, Kwesi Des Vignes said that
having a local company, as project manager for critical projects adds for greater responsiveness to the needs and unique challenges of the Tobago House of Assembly and the people of Tobago. “Not only has E-IDCOT proven that it can compete professionally, but because of its fundamental pro-environment mandate, we in the Division and the Assembly by extension are confident that E-IDCOT, as a key partner, complements and completes our overall strategy for environmentally sensitive and sustainable development in our Tobago space,” the Secretary said.
