Drawing on its potential as a services outsourcing centre, Trinidad and Tobago’s ICT sector remains a key contributor to the islands’ economy. In 2018 the telecommunications and broadcasting sector contributed around 3.7% to GDP. Revenue was generated primarily through software development, web design, data processing and training. Looking ahead, regional headquartering, research and development, business process outsourcing and cybersecurity remain key areas open to further development, especially as T&T seeks out private sector investment from around the globe. Adding to its prospects, T&T possesses the best ICT infrastructure in Latin America and the Caribbean, and ranks second in the region in terms of skills readiness among workers. This chapter contains an interview with Kirk Henry, CEO, iGovTT.
