PM meets Community Recovery Programme Team ahead of budget

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has met with representatives from the Community Recovery Programme Team at the Diplomatic Centre on Wednesday.

The team which is led by Anthony Watkins was established in early July to evaluate and design a path forward for communities in need. It was set up following week-long protests that rocked Morvant, Beetham and Laventille over the police killing of three men.

Minister of Finance Colm Imbert joined today's meeting as part of his planning for the upcoming national budget. 

Newly-appointed Minister of Youth Development and National Service Fitzgerald Hinds was also in attendance as his Ministry will work closely with the committee.
