The American Chamber of T&T believes the appointment of more females as Independent Senators is a good move towards gender parity.
The six individuals, who were sworn in by President Paula-Mae Weekes today, include four women and 2 men.
AMCHAM also congratulates its past Chairman of the Transparency, Accountability and Governance Committee, Anthony Vieira, on his appointment.
It hopes that the new Independent bench will inject more data and objectivity in dealing with debate and passage of legislation, in the best interest of citizens.
AMCHAM is also hopeful that the appointees will use their power to speed up the legislative process.
