The Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) will be hosting a trade mission to the Dominican Republic (DR) from September 12 to September 16, 2017 in collaboration with the Embassy of the Dominican Republic in Trinidad and Tobago.

According to a release from the TTMA, the delegation, led by senior officials of the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the TTMA’s CEO Dr Mahindra Ramdeen, will consist of 14 member companies from varying sectors including: chemicals and non-metallic, food and beverage, distribution, transportation and shipping, automotive and manufacturers of household products.

TTMA President, Christopher Alcazar said: “In keeping with our mission to increase the value and growth of the manufacturing sector in Trinidad and Tobago, the TTMA believes trade missions such as these play a pivotal role in opening new markets for our members with a view of ultimately generating much needed foreign exchange for our country.”

He further highlighted that the focus of the mission to the Dominican Republic will be business-to-business meetings between participants and companies in the DR, namely in Santo Domingo and Santiago dos Caballeros.

Alcazar emphasized that the TTMA continues to focus on the expansion into the Latin American markets for its members as the Association has quite recently hosted trade missions to Panama and Cuba and also hosted several workshops on Latin American markets in 2017.
