Opening Address by Senator the Honourable Franklin Khan, Minister of Energy and Energy Industry at the Launch of the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries Mentorship Programme

“In its mandate, the MEEI has the responsibility for the management of the energy sector of T&T comprising crude oil, gas, renewable energy and minerals. The importance of the energy sector can be gauged by its economic contribution to this country. The sector has consistently been the largest contributor to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) currently around at 26% to 30%, the generator of the largest foreign exchange inflows and a major contributor to Government’s revenues”.
