Tourism in Trinidad and Tobago has a long way to go

Published on : Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Tourism in Trinidad and TobagoGlobal tourism, as estimated by the WTTC, is the world’s biggest industry. The tourism industry is projected to grow by 3.9 percent per year.

Travel and tourism has become an undeniable human right. More and more people all across the world, and not just in North America and Europe, now have the motivation and the financial means to travel more.

Like other Caribbean countries, tourism is valuable to Trinidad and Tobago. It is an industry that employs around 16.7% of the population (according to the World Travel and Tourism Council). Hence, Travel & Tourism to Trinidad and Tobago is an indisputably major industry in the twin island republic.

Tourism affects the livelihood of most people in Trinidad and Tobago. The benefits range from the economic activities of farmers, fishermen, cooks, shopkeepers, bartenders and tour guides to the activities of hotels, banks, and resorts as well as carnival bands, entertainers, immigration, etc.

Tourism literally impacts every job directly or indirectly, creating an enormous value chain.

However, although tourism provides a major part of T&T’s employment, the industry isn’t that developed like that of Jamaica, Barbados and the Bahamas. The tourism industry’s potential in T&T is a long way from being fully tapped.
