There are a lot of nice sentiments
expressed about the role sport can
play. But against a background of
policy development and strategic

Last week two important events
were held in T&T and it's hard not
to feel that local sport was left out
The two events were: The third
annual Caribbean Investment Forum
(CIF). CIF allows for very important
discussions that can impact micro
and macro enterprises and is attend-

government, regional and interna-
tional investors. Critical issues such
as entrepreneurship, innovation and
investment opportunities are dis-

If sport lacks respect or the atten-
tion from those who are responsible
for charting the country's economic
welfare, it's the fault of sport. I am

Those who have told me the task
is daunting point to the struggles of
the T&T Pro League as an example.
Instead of looking at the strengths
of the Pro league, attention is always
focused on why it can't work.
It's time we get past the negativity
and focus on a strategic vision for
the future of sport.
