Dubbed the #2 emerging ICT hub in the world by Business Facilities in 2010, Trinidad and Tobago is on the path towards becoming a global leader for ICT.
With the same dedication invested in building a thriving energy sector, the government has committed to doubling ICT’s contribution to the nation’s GDP from three percent to six percent by 2013.
Speaking at the Trinidad and Tobago Coalition of Services Industries Workshop: Simply Innovation, The Honourable Minister of Trade and Industry, Stephen Cadiz, stated: “Stronger emphasis will be placed on assisting companies and individuals to develop the skills to innovate.
This is essential if we are to move forward as a nation. While we cannot compete with larger nations in terms of output due to economies of scale, there is no limit to our capacity to innovate.”
A key component in the pioneering effort to engender innovation is Tamana InTech Park, the country’s first Science and Technology Park (www.tamana.com) and at the heart of Tamana InTech Park lies its Incubator, the Trinidad and Tobago Innovation Centre (TTIC).
On completion the TTIC will provide entrepreneurs with shared facilities, flexible lease terms, dedicated office space and business services; as well as the financial and managerial advice and guidance to grow their businesses.
