Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has left the country to attend the Twenty-Ninth Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference Heads of Government of CARICOM in Haiti this week.

According to a statement from the Office of the Prime Minister, Dr Rowley left on Sunday to attend the conference, which takes place from February 26-27.

Finance Minister Colm Imbert will stand as acting Prime Minister in Dr Rowley's absence. 

Dr Rowley is expected to return to Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday, February 28, 2018.

The conference will examine the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), particularly Administrative Requirements in the Skills Certification Process as it relates to the Requirement for a Police Certificate of Character.
