Minister of Trade, Investment and Industry, Vasant Bharath was the feature speaker at the launch of the 15th Trade and Investment Conference (TIC) which is held annually by the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA). Bharath brought a message of the government’s pursuit of diversifying the economy by enhancing the environment in which manufacturers can do business—a message that underscored support for the event.

 

 

Also bringing words of continued support were the event’s key sponsors—TSTT, represented by Rakesh Goswami, executive VP–enterprise services, and First Citizens, represented by Larry Nath, CEO. Among the specially invited guests were Mervyn Assam, Ambassador for Trade and Industry, and Mario Hernandez, vice Minister of the Economy of the Republic of El Salvador.

 

 

The event attracted a wide cross-section of business heads and the diplomatic corps, and was hosted by Nicholas Lok Jack, president of TTMA. Ramesh Ramdeen, CEO of the TTMA, was the afternoon’s master of ceremonies.
