PM announces Coast Guard to get two new vessels

Today, PM Keith Rowley visited the Coast Guard Headquarters at Staubles Bay, Chaguaramas.

The PM received a brief from senior officers of the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard regarding their ongoing activities as well as toured the facility and vessels.

After his tour, the PM announced during a press conference that Cabinet has decided to place an order with ship maker Austal for two vessels for the coast guard through a financing arrangement courtesy the Australian Government.

This, he said, as a part of the Government’s efforts to secure T&T’s borders and provide the coast guard with capabilities that it currently does not possess.

The vessels are expected to be ready before the end of 2020.
