On Saturday, I joined a combined
national security force in Enterprise,
as they undertook" Operation Restore
2" to return peace and safety to the
people of the central community.
I hope the message is clear to the
Under my watch, there will be zero
tolerance toward crime in Trinidad
I know how crime frightens and hurts
hard working families in our country.
We have made great progress on re-
ducing violent crime, but I have a clear
plan to achieve even more in a second
term to deliver safety and security to
all our people.
It was a privilege and honour to rep-
resent Trinidad and Tobago at the
CARICOM Heads Meeting last week.
It was an important conference for
the region and for Trinidad and To-
I was also pleased to meet with UN
Secretary General Ban Ki - Moon.
These meetings provided an oppor-

this region and for me to highlight the
great economic strides we have made
in Trinidad and Tobago since 2010 and
the exciting plans I have for the future.
I am determined to build a new and

Nothing to hide...
PRIME MINISTER Kamla Persad-Bissessar has
debunked Opposition Leader Dr. Keith Rowley's
taunt about general election observers.
Rowley recently threatened to summon Cari-
com poll watchers.
PM Persad-Bissessar called Rowley's bluff and
requested a team from the Commonwealth.
The Prime Minister was saying she has nothing
to hide and is proud to showcase T& 1's election
process to the world.
Decisive, proactive PM
DECISIVE and proactive, Prime Minister Kam-

My government remains focused
on our thrust to diversify and expand
Trinidad and Tobago's economy.
I am very proud that the economic
growth we have created in the past few
years has created thousands of jobs
and brought the unemployment rate
down to three per cent.
This means that 97 per cent of the
labour force is gainflÙly employed.
Trinidad and Tobago now rides high
in international happiness tables be-
cause our government delivered more
than 100 new schools; refurbished or
built more than 100 new health cen-
tres; created 56,000 new jobs and
has seen more than 11,000 new busi-
nesses in the past two years; brought
clean water supplies to 70 per cent of
the poplÙation and constructed hun-
dreds of new roads and thousands of
Our policies put the people at the
centre and offer tremendous resourc-
es for the health, education and pro-
tection of our children. Why? Because
we are building a new Trinidad and
Tobago for our children.
Having promised and delivered a
turnaround, growth and progress in
our first term, our work must continue
into the second term if we are to truly
achieve a nation we can celebrate.
