Over the years globalisation and more recently geopolitical tensions and supply chain disruptions accentuated by the Covid 19 pandemic have made some places more important and better positioned to attract and/or grow corporate investment than others. Join us to learn more about how Trinidad and Tobago can be a competitive destination for global corporate investment and trade.
The Trinidad and Tobago Investment Forum is the highest-profile event dedicated to promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) and trade in Trinidad and Tobago. The Investment Forum plays a vital role in raising awareness about the wide range of viable investment opportunities in Trinidad and Tobago, and building relationships among corporate investors, trade partners, TT government leaders, and existing industry principals.
This year’s forum will focus on the Trinidad and Tobago Corporate investment environment, industry trends, and new opportunities. Additionally, the Investment Forum will showcase senior government officials, C-Suite business executives, and other thought leaders.
InvesTT focuses on the country’s key non-energy sectors: Energy Intensive Manufacturing, Maritime & Logistics, Share Services/BPO, ICT, Agrotechnology, Hotel and Resort Development, and Creative Industries. We work in partnership with investors from the beginning of their site selection process straight through to the establishment of business and successful operations.
All eyes are on economic recovery as InvesTT continues its work to attract investors to expand operations to the country or to invest in greenfield project opportunities in sectors targeted for growth.
The Trinidad and Tobago Investment Forum is produced in collaboration with the Caribbean Export Development Agency and the European Union. Caribbean Export is the regional trade and investment promotion agency focused on accelerating the economic transformation of the Caribbean. Visit www.carib-export.com to learn more!
