Trinidad & Tobago 2020 - Tourism

With the ingredients of a typical Caribbean sun, sea and sand destination, an ecotourism centre and MICE gathering point, Trinidad and Tobago has significant potential to develop its tourism sector further. After a slow start following the creation of two organisations that will promote the islands as independent but culturally interconnected international destinations, progress is starting to be seen. Investment in hotel infrastructure by established global operators and the construction of a new terminal at ANR Robinson International Airport in Tobago is also hoped to spur additional foreign investment. Furthermore, the development of niche tourism through sporting events and ecotourism is likely to attract a new market of travellers looking for something beyond the traditional beach-centric model. This chapter contains an interview with Randall Mitchell, Minister of Tourism.
