The Downtown Owners and Merchants Association (DOMA) says that despite the negatives associated with disruptions in the capital city, the capital is open for business.
DOMA says it must seek to protect the image of the country, despite the fact that the negative occurrences have affected investment from both overseas and internally.
DOMA issued the following statement on Monday:
Petrotrin says its officials, along with other stakeholders, are continuing investigations into reports of the presence of strong odours at different locations in Point Fortin.
A statement by the state oil company says that upon receiving initial reports, the company’s emergency responders visited the identified areas and conducted air quality testing and monitoring.
It says inspections of the company’s infrastructure in the area, particularly its pipeline network, were also undertaken.
However, no leaks have been detected.
