Independence Day Message from Minister of Labour and Small Enterprise Development

Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago - Saturday 31 August 2019

Message from the Minister of Labour and Small Enterprise Development from Senator the Honourable Jennifer Baptiste Primus

Our beloved Republic of Trinidad and Tobago has, for the past 57 years, enjoyed the treasured status of independence. Today we stand proud on the shoulders of our forefathers who in various ways charted the course that led to our freedom from Colonial rule.

There are no words more apt to describe our beloved twin-island State. Truly, here every creed and race find an equal place. We enjoy a resplendent blend of ethnicities, races, religions and traditions; all coming together in the unique melting pot called Trinidad and Tobago.

As we continue on our journey for the years to come may purposeful living, truth, imagination, innovation, productivity, humbleness and selflessness reign supreme.

May God truly bless our nation!
