THE Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce Gabriel Faria will keep his job.
This after the chamber met to deal with the issue where Faria was slammed by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley about a post on a WhatsApp group that was leaked to Rowley.
A statement from Chamber president Reyaz Ahamad on Monday said the board had met with Faria “to discuss matters related to recent news and social media coverage”.
It added, “The board is of the view, and Mr Faria agrees, that he should always be mindful of his role and obligations as the CEO of the TT Chamber. As a result of the discussions, the board has determined that Mr Faria will continue in his current position as CEO of the TT Chamber.”
Ahamad said over the past three years Faria has helped to build a strong and effective Chamber as a credible advocate for its members and the wider business community.
The release stated, “The board would like to reaffirm the role of the TT Chamber as an advocacy body committed to the highest standards of enterprise, to pursue collaborative and constructive dialogue with the Government…”
It stated, “As the voice of business, the TT Chamber will continue to act as a champion of business and to advocate on behalf of the private sector.”
