Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says the Government does not expect to make mass retrenchments in the public sector in 2018.
This as the moratorium the Government placed on State-sector retrenchment comes to an end on December 31.
“In going forward, in managing the reduction of the expenditure profile, we are expecting that we won't have to do that. While 2018 will be difficult, we expect we would not engage in any mass retrenchment in 2018,” he assured.
Rowley's comments came during an exclusive interview with CCN TV6 journalists Faine Richards and Juhel Browne, which aired on Wednesday night. He asserted that the people of T&T remained the Government's number one priority.
