Dr. Sabga was a recipient of the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce Business Hall of Fame Award.

Dr. Sabga recognized and thanked the Chamber for its contribution to the development of this country’s industrial and commercial base, and for the continued encouragement of significant intellectual conversations.
Dr. Sabga also recognized and thanked the ANSA McAL Group of companies, stating that the growth and development of the Group was keenly linked to its people.
