Former Trinidad trade and industry minister set to work in Africa
Published on January 11, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- Former Trinidad and Tobago trade and industry minister Vasant Bharath will be taking up a lucrative job in Africa next month.

Vasant Bharath
Former senator Bharath, who was defeated in his bid for a parliamentary seat in the general election in September, said he also had several personal projects in the United Kingdom that he plans to resuscitate, the Trinidad Guardian reported.

“I had offers from multinationals to do some work in Africa, which I would start in mid February. I will be doing work for them in one of the African countries. As you know, I am a chartered accountant, but I do have a masters degree in law and business administration,” Barath said.

He said he did not receive any offers in Trinidad and opted to go outside when the opportunity came knocking.

The firm does not have a base in Trinidad, he noted.

Bharath resigned his appointment as an opposition senator in an unsuccessful bid for the political leadership of the United National Congress (UNC) in the party’s internal election last December.
