A new net repair facility at Matelot is expected to aid in the economic development of that north coast fishing village. The $480,000 facility was officially declared open during a function organised by the National Commission for Self Help( NCSH). Chairman Surujdeo Mangaroo, it was constructed to replace facilities damaged by bad weather last year. It was built in line with the Ministry of Planning’s economic goals for the coastal communities.


Chairman of the Toco Sangre Grande Regional Corporation Terry Rondon thanked the NCSH for its role in building the facility which he said would bring some benefits to the Matelot fishing community.
