The American Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AMCHAM) has offered condolences on the passing of Energy Minister Franklin Khan and has said that he was diligent in the discharge of his duties.

The following is a statement by AMCHAM.

“The American Chamber of Commerce of T&T (AMCHAM T&T) extends condolences to the family of the Minister of Energy and Energy Industries the Hon Franklin Khan.

Senator Khan was a gentleman who always sought to discharge his public duties diligently. In the 2002 – 2010 period, he was often described as a “super-minister” as the then Government’s go-to problem solver.

In our interaction with him, Senator Khan was always open and engaging. His signature smile provided a window to his personality. He was willing to listen and consider different points of view.

His steely competence and commitment towards national development have left an indelible mark on Trinidad and Tobago.

We hope that his family and loved ones are able to find peace and comfort in the significant contribution that he has made, and the memories they shared. May he

rest in eternal peace.”
