    The UNC has proposed the lowering of Corporate Taxes and removal of Property Taxes for certain businesses in a bid to build the local economy.

    During a political meeting in Preysal last evening, Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar outlined some initiatives which she insisted will improve the ease of doing business locally.

    She also proposed making Spanish compulsory in schools.

    The UNC Leader also proposed heavy investment to improve port infrastructure to attract new shipping lines, and to hire more customs and excise personnel to increase efficiency of their operations.
