Bermudez appointed UWI Chancellor

Friday, April 21 2017

EDUCATION Minister Anthony Garcia, in announcing that businessman Robert Bermudez is the next University of the West Indies (UWI) Chancellor, yesterday declared, “I must say it is very significant because there must be a paradigm shift.” Speaking at the post-Cabinet news conference, Garcia said Caricom governments have been burdened over the years with having to fund all of UWI’s expenditure.

In the case of TT, Garcia stated, “Our government has been within the forefront of providing much needed funding.” He added that he can show, “we expend in excess of $650 million towards the UWI.” The minister continued, “The shift now is in the area of self-sufficiency.” However, Garcia added, “It does not mean that the contributing territories will cease contributions.” Against this background, Garcia said Bermudez brings, “a wealth of business experience.” Bermudez is the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bermudez Group of Companies.

He is also a non-executive director of the Massy Group. Incumbent chancellor George Alleyne’s term of office
