Content Chamber calls for laws to include locals in projects
The T&T Local Content Chamber is calling for legislation to make it compulsory for local professionals to be included in projects in the country. President of the Chamber Lennox Sirjuesingh said the the group had tried moral persuasion but it did not work and was working through the Ministry of Energy to achieve its goal. He said all construction contracts should have a clause for the local content of professionals.
Sirjuesingh and two other members of the 47-member Chamber met with THA Chief Secretary Orville London on Thursday to the establishment of a Tobago Chapter of the organisation. He said the time had come for proper building codes to be established. London said Tobago contractors have found it challenging to deal with mega contractors coming from Trinidad and there were some practices which have to be agreed upon.
