“Young people are our greatest resource” is a strong sentiment that has been voiced by Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith.

Minister Smith believes that if the innovation and creative thoughts of Trinidad and Tobago’s youths are encouraged and nurtured the country’s dependency on oil and gas will be minimised. With special focus on the nation’s youth several camps/programmes have been implemented throughout the country.

On coming into office Minister Smith says around sixty projects were incomplete. His ministry has been on a drive to finish these projects and make the facilities available for use.

With regards to team TTO at the 2016 Rio Olympics the Sports Minister says the team worked hard but was marred with some negativity within it. Postmortems are expected to be done by the governing bodies for each sport and reports submitted to a committee.
