Despite forecasts for a long-awaited upturn in the Trinidad & Tobago economy in 2018, a sense of stillness prevails, and another fiscal deficit looms. University of the West Indies’ economist, Dr. Roger Hosein, says more must be done not only on diversification, but to harness the export and foreign exchange-earning potential of the non-energy sectors.
And Francisca Mata, who turned down offers from the 5-star hotels such as the Hyatt, to serve up Francisca’s Delights in Morvant and Port of Spain, as well as Leslie-Ann Wills-Cato, founder of FixerFilms, talk about motivation and overcoming challenges.
