The Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers' Association yesterday congratulated former justice Anthony Carmona on his election as President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
"The TTMA is heartened that this process had the support of the two major political parties in the country, allowing for a smooth transition," the business group said.
The TTMA said it was of the view that the former High Court judge was an excellent choice to serve as the country's Head of State.
"Mr Carmona has a distinguished legal career, and possesses significant knowledge and expertise, which will allow for efficient and effective execution of his duties in this very important post.
"The Association is confident in President-elect Carmona's ability to uphold this country's democratic tradition, and seek the interests of all citizens of Trinidad and Tobago," the group said in a statement yesterday.
