The Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce says it fully supports the initiative taken by the government to implement safe zones.
In a media release Thursday afternoon, the Chamber said these are practical and achievable temporary measures with minimal disruption to restart our economy safely, until the public health threat is behind us.
The Chamber said it believe this is the most effective mechanism to protect the unvaccinated while allowing those who are vaccinated to take part in higher risk activities.
It said the safe zone initiative is not unique as the world learns to live in a COVID19 environment – many countries in Europe, the Far East, many provinces in Canada, and states in the USA, even countries closer to home – Guyana and Antigua, have implemented similar systems.
The Chamber said Trinidad and Tobago sits at a critical juncture in our efforts to move beyond the pandemic.
It said while relaxing the curfew is a step in the right direction, the Chamber look forward to the continued easing of the curfew which will allow businesses to run more efficiently.
