From Recovery to the Future
The theme of this year’s edition of the Who’s Who in Trinidad and Tobago Business magazine, ‘T&T Fast Forwarding into 2023’ appears to be a needed and natural extension of the national mandate that sought to put the country on the road to pandemic recovery over the course of 2021-22. While strides have been made towards recovery as evidenced by the Central Bank’s last three quarterly statistics, there is still much to be done.
From a manufacturing perspective, Trinidad and Tobago’s economy seems to need to recover and grow at the same time. That is to say, a true fast-forward action is required to keep up with the global rate of change.
The good news about this challenge is that all sectors of the economy indicate that they are up to the task at hand. To this end, I believe the majority of both the energy and non-energy sectors have already set forth adjusted strategies and fresh growth objectives. What is left to be clarified is how both these sectors may fast forward recovery into growth not only for the interest of the sectors themselves, but for the benefit of tens of thousands of employees and other dependents.
