PM: Decentralization “sustained the decay” of Port of Spain


    Decentralization sustained Port of Spain’s decay, according to the Prime Minister, who has revealed plans for the city’s revitalization.

    Dr Keith Rowley spoke this morning at a public forum on the plans for the capital and noted that public/private partnerships will be utilized.

    He took issue with a previous government policy of spreading services away from Port of Spain.

    In an attempt to reverse what he has deemed to be decay, Dr Rowley said a number of catalyst projects have been identified.

    Dr Rowley believes the decay of Port of Spain manifested in several ways, including crime, reduced population and decreased private investment.
