The Prime Minister has announced plans to build three new youth camps in Trinidad and Tobago. This afternoon, as the new government was given their instruments of appointment, Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley noted that the country’s youth are of tremendous importance to his government.
The Government will now have a new ministry called Youth Development and National Services. This new ministry will be led by Fitzgerald Hinds. Hinds has faced great criticism in the past, by many in his Laventille West constituency. In fact, many will remember that he was chased out and doused with flood water, during a visit to lend assistance to residents of the Beetham community back in 2018. Hinds was also the Minister of Public Utilities and Works- both of which he did not sustain for very long periods.
