Minister Cox Receives Courtesy Call From Korean Ambassador

Minister of Social Development and Family Services, Senator the Honourable Donna Cox, today received a courtesy call from His Excellency Dongil Oh, Korean Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, at the Ministry’s Head office on St Vincent Street, Port of Spain. The meeting included cordial discussions on ways in which the Ministry and the Embassy can collaborate to improve the social services offered to citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

Among the discussions held, was the need for greater collaboration among both offices, improvement to the social services delivery systems in Trinidad and Tobago, advancing digitization efforts, as well as creating greater synergies for policy development.

The meeting also provided an opportunity to discuss how closer relationships could be established with foreign counterparts, as the Ministry seeks to adopt best practices in social services, particularly in the area of digitization. Minister Cox took the opportunity to expound on some of the Ministry’s ongoing and upcoming projects, particularly the National Register for Vulnerable Persons, which will be used to collect, store, and process vital information on vulnerable persons across Trinidad and Tobago. She also informed His Excellency of the Ministry’s intended launch of the Suicide Prevention Hotline, which will serve as a counselling and intervention facility.

His Excellency Dongil Oh was quite pleased to receive pertinent information about the Ministry’s various programmes and services. He also shared information on his country’s social services, and looks forward to maintaining an excellent working relationship with the Ministry.

The Ministry of Social Development and Family Services remains committed to proactively exploring opportunities to ensure that no one is left behind.
