Decentralisation good for PoS
I am a strong sponsor for the decentralisation of government ministries out of Port-of-Spain. The immense pile up of standstill traffic on most days is growing out of control as a lot of people refuse to carpool or use public transportation. Their choice of transport is up to them but something needs to be done to reduce the traffic congestion in the capital city.
The growing number of vehicles on the roads is mainly because Port-of-Spain is the main business district in the country. Approximately 500,000 or more people entering and exiting Port-of-Spain is the reason for the traffic congestion in the city. Have we considered the economic impact on the city due to this?
I think that the Government has made a viable proposal in decentralising some of the ministries out of Port-of-Spain. It is bound to have a desirable effect on the economy and I endorse and look forward to this development.
