We also need to engage the youth

first_imgMark R H Kleinschmidt, DA Proportional Representative councillor, KenwynMy 8-year-old grandson asked me what one says to another in acknow-ledging June 1. It was a bit of a tough one for me and I thought long and hard before answering him.Nowadays, our children and pupils in particular are extremely knowledgeable through their access to the internet, and Google is a tool which answers practically all questions.A quick answer for my enquiring minded grandson, would have been, wishing the person “Happy June”, but that would not appease him. I deliberated instead with, “Happy Youth Month”, which led to a further barrage of questions from his enquiring appetite.The moral of the aforesaid exchange tells us that while it is noble to acknowledge youth during June, that it is vitally important to engage and ensure that young and old alike assimilate the significance and meaning of Youth Month. It is not enough to merely have celebratory concerts and the ilk. Youth Month holds much significance for each of us individually and as a nation as we reflect on the events leading up to June 16, 1976, and it must be commemorated and embraced as such. Herein lies our true freedom from apartheid and the chains which separated us. Happy Youth Month.last_img read more

Trinidad & Tobago Central Bank predicts tight belts for 2016

first_imgIn its first Monetary Policy Announcement for 2016, the CBTT noted that crude oil and natural gas production fell during October to November 2015 for the Caribbean country, “with the slippage in gas output in particular continuing to negatively impact the downstream industries.”In June last year, oil was being sold in excess of US$100 on the global market, but the price has since plummeted to just over US$30, forcing the government to warn about tighter measures to deal with the significant loss of revenue.The CBTT said “available data over this period also allude to tepid activity in some of the non-energy sectors, most notably distribution and construction.“Although there have been recent reports of lay-offs across the construction, manufacturing and energy sectors, labor market conditions still appear broadly favorable, with demand for low to semi-skilled workers remaining relatively buoyant.” The Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago in Port of Spain. Low oil prices could further affect economy The Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago (CBTT) says the persistence of low oil prices on the global markets “suggests that fiscal stimulus to the economy is likely to be severely constrained in coming months.”last_img read more
