As Trinidad and Tobago’s Investment Promotion Agency (IPA) aligned to the Ministry of Trade and Industry, InvesTT is the first point of contact for investors seeking investment opportunities in Trinidad and Tobago. We have forged a solid track record for attracting FDI and have won the attention of international rating agencies:

- Winner of UNCTAD’s Investment Promotion Award for Excellence in Promoting FDI for Sustainable Development 2014;

All of these achievements translate into a first class experience for potential investors.

Trinidad and Tobago itself is an investment success story. Unlike most of its Caribbean peers, its economy does not rely primarily on tourism, but instead has fueled its growth with oil and gas reserves for over half of a century, making the nation one of the richest and most industrialized in the region. It is the most cost competitive nation among its Caribbean and Central American neighbours, with the lowest electricity rates in the region and the 8th lowest in the world at US$0.03/kWh
InvesTT focusses on the country’s key non-energy sectors: Aviation Services, Creative Industries, Fishing and Fish Processing, Maritime Services, Software Design and Applications. We work in partnership with investors from the beginning of their site selection process straight through to the establishment of business and successful operations.
