As the first stage to the development of a regional investment strategy, InvesTT embarked in September 2017 on a pre-strategy planning initiative with the objective of gathering information on Tobago and the fourteen regional corporations within Trinidad. Data collection focused on specific areas to garner a better understanding of the economic and investment potential of each region and the existing developmental issues that impact upon the achievement of these objectives.
Key to this strategy was the engagement of the Chairmen and Mayors of the various regional corporations, boroughs, and cities. The Agency’s objective was to identify human resources, land and material available in each jurisdiction as well as priority investment projects that can be promoted by InvesTT with the collaboration of the corporation. As of March 2018, the agency has met with and received positive responses from the regional corporations and cities of Port of Spain,Diego Martin, Arima, San Fernando, Princes Town, Penal/Debe as well as the Tobago House of Assembly.
