Meet the Chair

Hon. Terrence Deyalsingh

Before his stint in politics, the Hon. Terrence Deyalsingh started his career as a lecturer in the Institute of Training and Development (INTAD). From 2003-2006 he was a member of the Cabinet -appointed Committee on Labour Market Reform and chaired the sub-committee on Labour Market Information, all of which derived from his passion for business management.

Subsequently, Minister Deyalsingh entered the realm of politics, where he served as a Temporary Opposition Senator during the 10th Republican Parliament. He was appointed a Senator on November 2, 2010, and served until October 14, 2013, when he accepted the nomination to contest the St. Joseph constituency.  During this tenure in the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago, he has served on the Standing Orders Committee of the Senate, as well as on the Finance Committee.

As Minister of Health, his main goal is to bring the three highs, being blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol to the three lows. As Member of Parliament for St. Joseph, his aspiration is to provide the level of representation deserving of its status to his constituents.
