Country Profile

Trinidad & Tobago Country Profile

Trinidad and Tobago possesses robust institutions, with a stable democratic system and strong regional and international ties. Nevertheless, the country has faced a series of corruption cases, and a number of initiatives have been launched to combat this issue. T&T faces further challenges related to unemployment, particularly among the young, along with law and order, though figures remain below that of neighbouring states. Furthermore, recent economic and political instability in Venezuela has led to a rise in the number of refugees in the country. This chapter contains an interview with President Paula-Mae Weekes; and a viewpoint by Luis Alberto Moreno, President, Inter-American Development Bank.
