Investing in Trinidad and Tobago


InvesTT launched the first event of a series of intimate Investment Discussions, on Friday 18th, March at the Hyatt Regency, Trinidad.

Targeted towards local investors, this series intends to forge strategic partnerships that will enhance the investment execution capabilities of investors by linking them to the mechanism and specialized services of InvesTT.

Among those in attendance were heads of local companies and/or conglomerates from the membership of the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturing Association (TTMA) and the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Commerce.

According to Franka Costelloe, Chairman, InvesTT “The investment discussion series is designed to be intimate to allow for conversation around the investment climate and opportunities in Trinidad and Tobago. In turn, InvesTT can provide informative answers to investors’ questions  and their questions thereby inform us of their interest, priorities and pain points.”

Sekou Alleyne, President, InvesTT delivered an interactive presentation on the agency’s mission, mandate, closed and ongoing investments, and highlighted the services that investors can access, at no cost, through InvesTT.

John Hadad, Co-CEO HADCO Group and Shaun Rampersad, Chief Operations Officer, Ramps Logistics shared testimonials that provided first-hand, insights into the facilitation services that InvesTT continues to provide to their respective companies.

John Hadad described InvesTT as 'very facilitative' "The agency worked very closely with us with Immigration, and over a very short space of time we had over 20 to 25 engineers coming in to jumpstart the equipment, and the list goes on...InvesTT is open for business…and I recommend them highly.”

Shaun Rampersad said "InvesTT weaves the thread that brings the human capital, the financial capital and the opportunity together to really then turn it into something that can employ people and add value to the country and I think they do a very, very good job at that.”

InvesTT is pleased that the investment discussion was well received by those in attendance, and looks forward to the follow-up meetings with leading industry principles that will further deepen the understanding of the opportunities and benefits of collaboration.

InvesTT stands ready to support the economic diversification thrust led by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and will continue to move our economy forward through the promotion and facilitation of local and foreign direct investments in key prioritized investment areas.
