Setting up a business in Trinidad and Tobago is quite straight forward.
The Government of the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago (GORTT) encourages foreign direct investment in almost all sectors, with specific focus on the non-energy targeted sectors.
Trinidad and Tobago's success in energy has fueled its rapid development into one of the most industrialized and cost-effective nations in the Caribbean and Central America.
Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island republic situated below the hurricane belt, at the southern-most end of the Caribbean archipelago.
Edan K. Properties manages many complex projects - from purchase to conceptualization, financing and site development. In its role as facilitator, InvesTT has worked alongside Edan K. and played a significant role over the years in the fast-tracking of processes required to implement multi-faceted development projects.
InvesTT facilitated company registration and access to import duty concessions for equipment, engaged the Ministry of Energy & Energy Industries on the placement and inspection of their LPG tanks as well as facilitated smooth entry at Immigration for foreign engineers needed to install equipment and train local staff.
Located in St. Augustine Trinidad, Virtana Inc. is an outsourcing company that delivers high quality robotics software solutions to international technology companies, utilizing engineering graduates based in Trinidad and Tobago.
InvesTT’s capacity to provide reliable facilitation services to local investors was recently demonstrated in a multi-million dollar reinvestment by Holiday Snacks Ltd. (HSL), one of the six company brands of manufacturing guru, Bermudez Group Limited.
InvesTT’s relationship with HSL began as far back as 2015 during a strategic outreach to local conglomerates. When the opportunity arose, the investment promotion agency quickly sprang into action to assist the company to achieve its reinvestment goals.
Having outgrown its manufacturing facility in El Socorro, HSL required additional space to augment the growth of its export markets and sought to relocate next to its distribution facility in Charlieville on a 9-acre plot. Critical success factors for the move included obtaining timely approvals from regulatory agencies and a smooth engagement process with nearby private entities. InvesTT played a key role in facilitating stakeholder meetings with agencies such as Town and Country Planning and the Environmental Management Authority. The agency also assisted with securing approval from the National Gas Company for HSL to construct close to the natural gas pipeline.
The socio-economic benefits of this re-investment include the potential to create more jobs and to enhance the competitiveness of the local manufacturing sector with the introduction of new technologies.
Since its inception in 2012, InvesTT has assisted local and international investors from various industries to expand their business in Trinidad and Tobago. One such recent expansion was achieved by the Unicomer Group in November 2017 which established its Caribbean headquarters in Freeport, Trinidad with the help of InvesTT. The state agency was commended in 2017 for its expansion and reinvestment strategies by FDI Intelligence, a leading publication on global FDI and a service of the Financial Times. It has also been rated a Top Investment Promotion Agency in Latin
America and the Caribbean by the Site Selection Magazine.
