TT Chamber in support of removal of additional Covid restrictions

The Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce is in support of the Government’s removal of additional COVID-19 restrictions on certain sectors and activities.

In a statement to media, The Chamber wrote:
We believe these changes will enhance the economic activity and provide increased business and employment opportunities.

The move towards accepting an antigen test and the signal to eventually normalise border entry requirements, similar to other major jurisdictions, is also welcomed. It has been difficult to quantify the true total economic and non-economic cost of the restrictions and there will be a long road to recovery ahead.

The Chamber has consistently supported Government’s vaccination programme and indeed directly organized and funded vaccination drives for both the employees of member companies and the general public along with AmCham and the Trinidad and Tobago Coalition of Services Industries. More recently, we have supported outreach efforts to the private sector in the “Boost the Booster” programme.

We take this opportunity to encourage individuals to seek medical advice, get vaccinated, continue practising responsible behaviours and to adhere to the health protocols as highly contagious variants still exist among us.
