The Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s mission is “To be The Champion of Business towards the development of a strong and sustainable national economy”. Our 139-year old organisation has continued to create opportunities for members to leverage shared resources, knowledge and key contacts to develop a competitive edge in the global marketplace. The T&T Chamber remains one of the largest and most influential business organisations in Trinidad and Tobago.
We offer a broad range of services, and direct and indirect benefits that cater to companies in the widest span of sectors, and businesses at various stages of development. We facilitate trade initiatives in a number of ways including trade missions to create opportunities for outward exploration and new market penetration. Effective networking opportunities are available at all events, including our Business Insights training sessions. The T&T Chamber hosts three Signature Events annually – the Annual Business Luncheon, the Post-Budget Forum (a review, analysis and discussion forum on National Budget items) and the Champions of Business Gala. The latter provides recognition and reward to start-ups, businesses which export T&T goods or services and technology innovators. The event includes a lifetime award for outstanding business people by induction to the Business Hall of Fame.
The T&T Chamber also offers business referrals and dispute resolution training and services through the Dispute Resolution Centre. Our strong media presence via our weekly newspaper columns, radio programmes, electronic newsletters and through Contact magazine are used to educate and advocate for members by ventilating important issues affecting business today. Members can also influence their business sectors in a more meaningful way by joining a committee. Our standing committees include Crime & Justice, Facilities Maintenance & Management (FMM), Responsible Business, ICT Professionals of T&T (ICT ProTT), Employment and Labour Relations (ELR), Trade and Business Development (TBD), Environment Safety and Health (ESH), and NOVA for start-ups and entrepreneurs. Other committees are formed on an ad hoc basis to manage a number of issues. The T&T Chamber’s views are also represented on several national committees. Members enjoy business savings through our Membership Value Added Programme on select cost items. And there is more!
