Trinidad and Tobago’s government is closely watching the latest political development in Britain to see what impact it is having on the island and the Caribbean in general.

Last week in a national referendum the majority of people in the United Kingdom voted in favor of leaving the European Union.

The situation resulted in uncertainty in the financial market and also affected the price of oil globally for a short period.

Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley, was questioned on the matter by reporters at the weekly post cabinet media briefing held at the Office of the Prime Minister in St. Clair on Thursday afternoon.

The People’s National Movement Political Leader said the issue is a dynamic one that keeps changing daily and as such the government continues to monitor it.

Dr. Rowley also responded to questions about the role and relevance of CARICOM in light of what has transpired in Britain.
