A double-target achievement in Fiscal 2022.

For the fiscal year ended September 2022, InvesTT facilitated TT$486.3Mn in investments, representing a 70% increase from the prior year and a doubling of its targets. These results equate closely with InvesTT’s 3-year average of TT$400Mn/yr in investments facilitated pre-pandemic (2016 to 2018). T&T’s local business climate doubled down and invested TT$345.5Mn while foreign direct investment totalled TT$140.8Mn. The BPO industry dominated our foreign interest with four new investments, citing the skill, articulation and warmth of our people as our biggest asset.
