Trinidad forms gambling watchdog

Trinidad is monitoring its gambling problem

Trinidad and Tobago has established its Gambling Control Commission (GCC) that will monitor and govern gambling activities across the twin island nation.

Finance Minister Colm Imbert announced the appointment of the GCC’s first board of directors on Monday, chaired by Stephan Tang Nian.

A sweeping reform of gambling in Trinidad and Tobago is expected to take place because of the rising concerns of private member clubs providing casino-style games to the club members.

Tang Nian is a former senior government advisor on banking and auditing. The GCC’s board members are experts in gambling, business, IT and law.

Last summer Trinidad and Tobago’s Upper House approved the passage of the Gambling Control Bill that ordered the government to establish a commission/board.
