Delivering remarks at the ceremony, Housing Minister the Honourable Randall Mitchell reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to providing housing solutions to those most in need. Addressing the audience, he said, “I can tell you that the plan to provide affordable housing solutions for low and middle-income earners, is still very much alive today and is part of this Government’s Vision 2030 plan.”
Also in attendance were His Worship Joel Martinez, Mayor of Port of Spain, the Honourable Marlene Mc Donald, Member of Parliament for Port of Spain South, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, Ms. Simone Thorne-Mora, Chairman of the HDC, Mr. Newman George and Managing Director of the HDC, Mr. Brent Lyons.
