The Government is set to remove the fuel subsidy by first putting the proposal to the public for feedback from April 8.
This is according to Minister of Finance, Colm Imbert who announced plans to remove the fuel subsidy since last October in his budget presentation.
Speaking to the media yesterday at a media conference at the Finance Ministry at the Eric Williams Financial Complex, Port of Spain, Imbert said he intends to have a national discussion on phasing out the fuel subsidy.
Speaking on the affect the increase in gas would have on other items, Minister Imbert said he was amazed by the way in which business owners raised prices without proper implementation of the law.
