BASSETERRE – Members from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (CIC) and the Police High Command met with Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, Dr Timothy Harris on Thursday at Government Headquarters to address the burning issue of crime.

President of the CIC Damion Hobson and members Mark Wilkin and Emile Ferdinand Q.C., shared concerns with the Minister of National Security about the state of crime in the Federation and the negative impact that it can have on the business sector, investment climate and the economy on a whole.

Prime Minister Harris encouraged the CIC to implore the business community to take security measures in purchasing security equipment, while he pledged the Government’s support in providing concessions to those businesses that do so.

The prime minister also told the members of the CIC that the country was in an advanced stage of adaptation of closed-circuit television (CCTV).
