At a briefing session, at the National Academy for the Performing Arts, in Port of Spain today, noted economist Dr Terrence Farrell, presented a report he produced on the impact to the economy, of the petrochemicals industry in Trinidad and Tobago.

In pre-presentation of the report, at least one newspaper has summarized some of Dr Farrell’s views, to say that he argues against any notion that the country’s economy has turned around.
