The Minister of Finance of the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago will deliver the 2021/22 National Budget on Monday October 4th, 2021. The Central Finance Facility Co-operative Society of Trinidad & Tobago Limited (CFF) will be hosting our Annual Post Budget Breakfast on Friday October 8th, 2021. You will hear directly from The Honourable Foster Cummings, Minister for Youth Development and National Service about the government’s key budget priorities and the challenges ahead, followed by a panel of sector experts who will discuss what it means for the co-operative sector and the people it supports.
As one of the mandates of the CFF is to facilitate financing and innovation, the discussions will also focus on the Budget’s provision for the role of the movement in the growth and progress of young persons in areas including diversification and entrepreneurship and how the cooperative movement can collaborate with the Government for this important demographic in the creation of innovative products and services attractive to young people. This will enhance youth participation in credit unions and in turn draw new members and “customers” to the co-operative movement.
This meeting is targeted to board members, managers, senior staff and young professionals of Credit Unions and represents the continued work by CFF to ensure that the Credit Union Movement of Trinidad and Tobago remains resilient and sustainable for the future through the principle of “Cooperation among Cooperatives”.
Come listen to these expert panellists and be part of this important discussion.
