PORT OF SPAIN – The Association of Professional Engineers of Trinidad and Tobago (APETT) is seeking an “urgent meeting “with Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley after he publicly questioned the fees charged for state projects.

Rowley, speaking at the launch of a multimillion-dollar project earlier this week, said that the former People’s Partnership administration had estimated it would have cost TT$513 million, while his administration had approved the same project at TT$230 million.

But in a statement, APETT said that it noted with “grave concern” the statement made by the prime minister, adding it maintained high ethical standards upheld by its Code of Ethics and Guide to Practice under the Code of Ethics.
