This principle holds true to InvesTT’s approach to charting a course to successful business growth and expansion in Trinidad and Tobago. In January 2021, in recognition of the importance of the contributions of its stakeholders to the successful facilitation of investor requirements in 2020, the IPA reached out to key stakeholders involved in regulatory and business set-up processes to express their deep appreciation of their commitment to providing assistance to the agency.
Keeping within the Covid-19 regulations, InvesTT representatives took time out to present in person, appreciation packages to key persons without whose dedication and efforts during the pandemic successful facilitation of investor requests would not have been possible. Additionally, the agency also expressed its gratitude for the assistance granted by its stakeholders with personalized letters of appreciation from the IPA’s President, Sekou Alleyne.

Given the debilitating effects to business operations that accompanied the onset of the pandemic in 2020, the continued perseverance of stakeholder companies and their ongoing efforts to adapt through digitalization and increased collaboration was welcomed in the agency’s continued efforts to facilitate local and foreign investments in the country.
Without the assistance of stakeholders and their shared ownership of the country’s economic development goals InvesTT would indeed be faced with an insurmountable task. The interest and ongoing support from our stakeholders are welcomed, necessary and greatly appreciated.
With ambitious investment targets for 2021 and the urgent need for increased investments and economic diversification, InvesTT is looking forward to greater engagement and meaningful collaboration with its stakeholders in the facilitation of new and expansion business projects.
