Address by The Honourable Stuart R Young, Minister of Energy and Energy Industries at the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Chamber’s Energy Conference 2021

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am pleased to participate in this year’s Energy Chamber Conference as the Minister of Energy and Energy Industries at an exciting and pivotal time not only in Trinidad and Tobago’s energy history but at a time when the global energy sector is rapidly evolving, literally, before our eyes.

I intend to use my short time on stage this morning, to set out the Government’s vision, our plan, our intentions to carry Trinidad and Tobago forward through the transitions taking place. Allow me the opportunity to share with you how we can 3 navigate in this dynamic fossil fuel world leveraging the many advantages that we have thereby ensuring our continued successful and beneficial participation on the global platform as a country and with our stakeholders who have invested in Trinidad and Tobago over the decades.
