May 18, 2016:- Senator the Honourable Paula Gopee-Scoon, Minister of Trade and Industry made a clarion call to several Rotarians at the Rotary Club, Port-of-Spain West Luncheon Meeting on Wednesday 18 May, 2016 to understand their role in society, not only as members of the Rotary, but also as employers, stalwarts and leaders who have critical roles in ensuring our economic recovery. As a past Rotarian of the Rotary Club of Maraval, Senator Gopee-Scoon stated that,
‘now is a time for us to reflect on what we do, how we do it and who it affects. The Rotary Club, more than any other institutions, understands the link between economic depression and social strife. As the Minister of Trade and Industry, I understand the difficulties faced by the private sector and the need to create and implement policies and plans that create employment and foster confidence’.
