InvesTT presents new Business Opportunities to Private Sector Groups



Trinidad and Tobago’s national investment promotion agency, InvesTT, unveiled 3 business opportunities during a recent Heads of Chambers and Business Associations’ meeting hosted at the agency’s new location in Tower D, International Waterfront Centre. The presentation was the first in a series of interactions to be held with local Chambers of Commerce in the coming months.


“Part of our role is to scan the local environment for lucrative investment opportunities and promote them to foreign and local investors. We encourage innovation and competitiveness among local businesses which are necessary for the country’s economic growth and development”
Christopher Lewis, President of InvesTT.

InvesTT targets investments in industries such as Manufacturing, ICT, Creative Industries, Maritime Services, Agro-processing and Tourism. The agency has facilitated 15 site visits from local and foreign investors within the past 10 months, closed 5 investment projects (4 local, 1 foreign) over thesame period and currently has an active pipeline of investments pending.

Based on in-depth research commissioned from PricewaterhouseCoopers Trinidad through standard procurement procedures by InvesTT in 2018, the opportunities presented were:

  1. Downstream Secondary Aluminum – the recovery of aluminum and aluminum alloys from scrap and the manufacturing of inglots.
  2. Manufacturing of Light Emitting Diode (LED) components.
  3. Establishment of a Film Studio.


Heads and senior representatives of the T&T Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the T&T Manufacturers’ Association, the Chaguanas Chamber of Industry and Commerce and The Arima Business Association were appreciative of the opportunities shared by InvesTT. There was a high level of optimism among them about the potential to be gained as stand-alone or joint venture investment projects among their memberships.

Local entrepreneurs who are interested in exploring any of the above business opportunities are invited to set up an appointment with a member of our Investments Team at +1 (868) 225-4688 or email us at Investors can also benefit from our investor facilitation services .
