Economist: Diversification absolutely imperative in next decade

Economist Dr Indera Sagewan says diversifying the Trinidad and Tobago economy beyond oil and gas, has become an absolute imperative in the next decade.

As she looked ahead to 2020 and beyond, Dr Sagewan warns that an over-reliance on any one particular sector can no longer continue.

She notes that the political administrations which governed over the past decade did make a start at diversification, but those efforts have not borne fruit, nor did they get the kind of support they needed.
