THE EDITOR: I was very happy with the address of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to the nation a few nights ago. I was comforted by her assurance that the country’s economy was strong enough to withstand the sudden drop in oil prices.
This assurance can only be given if the economy is being soundly managed.
I shudder to think what could have happened if the economy had been mismanaged. There are some who think there have to be cuts to wages, retrenchment, devaluation of the dollar and the like.
There are those who could only manage an economy by doing such.
I look forward to the PP Government prudently managing the economy and keeping TT on the road of development and progress.
