InvesTT receives award for 'Top Investment Promotion Agency' in Caribbean and LatAm.

InvesTT, Trinidad and Tobago’s national Investment Promotion Agency (IPA) has received the 2020 “Top Investment Promotion Agencies Award – National” in the region of the Caribbean & Latin America. The announcement was released in May 2020 by US based global corporate expansion experts, Conway Data, Inc. which has been a trusted advisor to corporations, government economic development and investment promotion agencies around the world since 1954.

InvesTT received the internationally recognized award on three previous occasions - the first awarded in 2015, just two years after the IPA’s establishment, the second in 2017 and the most recent in 2019. Conway also ranked Trinidad and Tobago as second overall “Best to Invest Location” in the Caribbean region ahead of Jamaica and St. Lucia.

“The job of InvesTT is crucial at this time in order to create industries and increase opportunities for economic expansion and job creation. The fact that we have received this award on four occasions demonstrates our skills and ability to do our job to maintain Trinidad and Tobago as an investment destination of choice.”
Philip Knaggs, Chairman, InvesTT
