PM Rowley’s Remarks – Post Cabinet Media Briefing (Thursday 30th June 2016)

Good afternoon members of the media, I just want to add a comment or two on the subject that Minister Dillon, Minister of National Security, mentioned, that is the whole question on how we are viewed with respect to our effort in treating with the whole question of trafficking in persons.

The fact that we are still on the watch-list on tier 2 is not entirely a bad outcome because had we not done what minister Dillon had just outlined we would have been more than likely downgraded. However, we were able to hold our position and escape the threatened downgrade because of the actions that we have taken which have been outlined there recently. But we continue to pursue the national effort.
