Trinidad and Tobago - "A Dynamic Duo"
Trinidad and Tobago is the perfect mix of business and pleasure with a thriving investment environment. The dualism of the twin-island republic creates an atmosphere that grows on you, yet the two islands have been traditionally known as the land of the steel pan, limbo and calypso.
With the onset of globalization, international migration has accelerated worldwide interconnectedness especially in trade and investment. These evolutionary trends have transformed world perceptions so much so that Trinidad and Tobago is no longer seen as merely a “dot” on a map but as an ideal investment destination.
US Television, an independent television production company, has showcased Trinidad and Tobago as “A Dynamic Duo” http://www.us-television.tv/programs/trinidad-and-tobago-3. Shown on Fox 5, the video not only promotes vast opportunities in the trade and investment arena, but also emphasizes its economic and political sustainability.
The country’s strength as a twin island republic and a force to be reckoned with in the Caribbean is revealed via interviews with key stakeholders in energy, tourism, finance, marine and telecommunications sectors.
Trinidad and Tobago is described by US Television as “a dazzling pair of Caribbean islands boasting culture, creativity and colour. And this is just the beginning. Underneath the nation’s beautiful exterior lies a land buzzing with opportunity”. It is one of the world’s best kept secrets where you come for business and stay for pleasure - a unique dual characteristic which no other island in the Caribbean region can easily claim.
This country has accomplished many worldwide achievements notwithstanding a population size of 1.3 million and a total area of 1980 sq. miles combined. It gained its status as a republic nation in 1976 and in that year, Hasley Crawford won the first Olympic gold medal for the country for track and field. Then in 1977 Janelle “Penny” Commissiong won the Miss Universe Pageant becoming the first black woman to win that title.
Trinidad and Tobago is the native land of many other accomplished nationals: Brian Lara, world record holder for the most runs, made his name in Cricket; the national football team qualified for the 2006 FIFA World Cup; Nobel Prize-winning author V. S. Naipaul, and most recently, Keshorn Walcott won a gold medal in the men’s javelin throw in the 2012 Olympics.
There is no doubt that the country has forged for itself a strong identity throughout the Caribbean and the world, known for the beauty and diversity of the country and its people.
According to the Honourable Winston Dookeran, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trinidad and Tobago has a solid economy as its macroeconomic fundamentals are strong, making it very positive on an economic front to attract foreign direct investment. The geographic location positions the country as a gateway to North and South America for international investors, providing market access to over 1.2 billion customers.
