Published on Wednesday 13th December, 2017

Reports include that the residence is being sold by the State to a private individual, and that the Urban Development Corporation of Trinidad & Tobago…has been commissioned by the Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs to provide conceptual designs for a new building, either for the Ministry’s new location or for chanceries for small States (depending on which source is read)…”
