June 22, 2007:“Very impressive” was how the Honourable Camille Robinson Regis Minister of planning and development described the progress of the works at the POS Intlernational Waterfront Centre upon touring the site on June 15, 2007.

The Honorable Minister and her team viewed substantially complete rooms, the 9,000 square foot spa, viewed the 1300 seater ballroom with 24 foot ceilings and were thrilled to see local workers installing indigenous blue stone to form the backdrop for the ocean view lounge at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad and Tobago.

Pleased that the site includes a workforce that is 85% local, after visiting the site, Honourable Minister of Planning and Development was even more confident the International Waterfront Project will continue to contribute Trinidad and Tobago’s goal of attainment of developed country status by the year 2020.

UDeCOTT is developing the structures that form part of the innovation for lasting
prosperity; the development plan of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago.
