Minister of Sports Foggo
In just over a week we will start a new legislative session with the presentation of this Government’s second Throne Speech. After almost 16 months in office, we have accomplished much of what we set out to do but there remains plenty of work to be done.
Let me first extend my sincere thanks to former Minister Michael Weeks who brought a valued empathy to the former Ministry of Social Development & Sports. His commitment will continue to serve the country and the Party well.
Concurrently with these additions to the Cabinet, I have also taken the opportunity to realign some departments to better fit with the policy aims and objectives of the Government. These include:
Minister Lovitta Foggo will now be responsible for Labour and Workforce Development in the Ministry of Labour, Community Affairs & Sports.
