Cabinet gives its approval for the Urban Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the chosen contractor of the Chinese Embassy, China Railway Construction Company Limited, for the construction of the Arima hospital.

National Diversity and Social Integration Minister and Arima Member of Parliament, Roger Samuel, revealed this at the weekly post cabinet news briefing at the Prime Minister’s St Clair Office on Thursday.

On the first day of every month members of the group, Friends of the Arima Hospital, protested in front the existing hospital reminding politicians of the promise made in the past to construct a new facility.

They say the new hospital is required, due to growing demand on the present facility and intensified commercial and industrial activity.
