Accessibility

Trinidad and Tobago is a twin-isle republic at the southernmost end of the Caribbean archipelago and is easily accessible to many major cities throughout the world. The Piarco International Airport, with its 16-gate terminal, is a vital hub for international air traffic in the region. Many airlines also fly into the Arthur NR Robinson Airport in Tobago, which links to Piarco via a bi-hourly air service. A daily ferry service also links Tobago’s capital city, Scarborough, with Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Trinidad’s two fully developed industrial ports serve as major transshipment hubs between the Americas. They are located in Port of Spain and Point Lisas, handling dry and general cargo, industrial bulk and containers. Trinidad and Tobago has an extensive network of paved roads and major highways traverse both islands. The country’s advanced public transport system includes a daily water-taxi service linking commuters from the south of Trinidad to the northern capital city. There is a reliable supply of electricity and water and rates for most utilities are among the lowest in the region.

The ICT industry in Trinidad and Tobago features high penetration and cost-effective fixed line, mobile and internet services.

Industries are located throughout the country and in industrial parks. Real estate for both commercial and private use is widely available.
