The Government of Trinidad and Tobago has officially ruled-out a one-off public holiday for the upcoming November 27-29 CHOGM Summit.

Ever since the Port-of-Spain venue was chosen for the 2009 CHOGM Summit (2005-11-29), there had been widespread speculation (2009-01-04) that the first day of CHOGM, Friday, November 27, 2009, would be declared a one-off public holiday, as was done in April for the Summit of the Americas Meeting (2009-04-07), and in other countries for previous CHOGM summits (2007-11-15).
