Dear Keith,

I write to let you know how pleased and happy I am at the performance of the Government which you led over the past five years.

I am proud of you.

I did say some 12 years ago that you were arguably the most outstanding Caribbean parliamentarian, and how right I was.

Congratulations and best wishes for the future. Trinidad and Tobago is in good hands.

I hope I live long enough to see the positive transformation that is in store for us over the next five years.

Selwyn Ryan
