Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has visited Caribbean Packaging Industries, Nestle, TYE Manufacturing and VEMCO as the manufacturing sector has resumed operations.

This comes a few days after the Government entered phase two of a six-tier plan to ease restrictions implemented to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus. On May 21, the entire manufacturing sector was given the all-clear to return to work.

During Wednesday's visit, the Prime Minister heard from manufacturers regarding the measures they have enforced in response to COVID-19 and the strides they are making to ensure production.

Dr Rowley was accompanied on the visits by Minister of Trade and Industry, Paula Gopee-Scoon and Advisor to the Prime Minister on Agriculture, Dr John Alleyne.
