Trinidad and Tobago suspends operations of state tourism agency
Published on August 22, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- The Trinidad and Tobago Tourism Development Company (TDC) has ceased operations and, effective Monday, the ministry of tourism will manage the following tourism portfolios previously under the remit of the TDC on an interim basis:

• Tourism Investment and Incentives
• Cruise Passenger Visitor Services
• Airport Visitor Information Services
• Sites and Attractions – Maracas Beach Facility, Las Cuevas Beach Facility, Vessigny Beach Facility, Manzanilla Beach Facility and the La Brea Pitch Lake

In March 2017, the government of Trinidad and Tobago renewed its commitment to boost the tourism sector as part of the country’s diversification thrust. The Cabinet, to this end, made a decision to create three separate entities to drive the local tourism sector forward.

1. The Tourism Trinidad Destination Management Company Limited (Tourism Trinidad)

2. The Tobago Tourism Agency

3. Trinidad and Tobago Tourism Regulatory and Licensing Authority

Trinidad and Tobago remains one of the most unspoilt tourist destinations within the Caribbean; blessed with a uniquely diverse culture that is reflected in an array of mouth watering culinary delights and riveting heritage traditions.

These three entities are intended to act as catalysts for the sustained development of Trinidad and Tobago’s tourism sector and present us all with a unique opportunity to move our tourism product forward in new and exciting ways.
