It is very comforting to read of the the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) latest country report for Trinidad and Tobago. They predicted robust growth for the T&T’s economy in the region of 2.5% for 2014. This reinforces the economic policy of the government, that they were working to stabilise and strengthen the economic fundamentals over the past few years after the financial upheavals 2009 and 2010. This is a great endorsement of this policy and a promise of better days ahead for this country. This also corresponds with the Standard and Poor’s A rating for this country.
In the last few years the world was experiencing the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930’s ,however, the government persevered and stuck to effective economic policy to ensure that we came out on the right side of this economic maelstrom. For this they should be commended and we should be expecting better things to come.
