Former Minister in the Ministry of Finance Mariano Browne says the Prime Minister is not as helpless in restructuring the T&T economy as he suggests.
He referred to the Prime Minister’s comments at Monday’s Spotlight on the Budget presentation.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show on Tuesday, Browne said that there are decisions that can be made to restructure the economy, and any suggestion by the Prime Minister to the contrary is disingenuous.
However, he acknowledged the T&T economy is not in good condition.
This he attributes to a reduction in exports particularly in the energy sector.
He said that as far as it concerns foreign exchange, pertinent information was left out.
