Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley said today that his administration is moving towards reviving the ailing economy of the oil rich twin-island Republic and avoid going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

He urged citizens “to acknowledge that we don’t have as much as we would like so there are going to be some restrictions on spending”.

But Rowley, who became head of the Trinidad and Tobago government after he led his People’s National Movement (PNM) into victory in the September 7th general election, said he does not want his administration to be classified as “an austerity government.

During the radio interview Rowley promised that the government would seek to meet its obligation to pay billions of dollars in arrears to public servants as early as possible and again urged companies not to send home workers in light of the “recession”.
