Tourism

T&T remains one of the least developed destinations in the Caribbean. Although tourism has not historically been a priority for the government, increased pressure to diversify away from oil and gas has made tourism a viable development alternative. Higher oil prices in 2018 could provide the country with much-needed revenues to amplify diversification efforts. Meanwhile, ongoing efforts to expand source markets and establish a policy framework and regulatory authority bode well for the sector, especially as global tourism is set to continue rising over the next decade. With a unique and diverse cultural heritage and strategic setting outside of the hurricane belt, T&T has the opportunity to move its tourism offerings forward. This chapter features an interview with Janelle Commissiong, Chairman, Tourism Trinidad Destination Management Company.
