Minister Mitchell urges cruise visitors to enjoy tourism offerings

Trinidad’s 2019/20 Cruise season began on Thursday 14th November 2019 with the arrival of the more than 3,500 passengers on the Caribbean Princess Cruise line. Stressing the importance of the sector, Tourism Minister, the Honourable Randall Mitchell says the Ministry’s Strategic Plan is to increase visitor arrivals to 100,000.
Insisting that more should be done to increase the sector’s economic value, which will trickle down to tour operators, service providers, tour guides and craft vendors, Minister Mitchell says: The Ministry and Tourism Trinidad Limited will continue to collaborate and negotiate with cruise lines to market and promote Trinidad as a cruise Destination, and increase cruise calls to the Destination. We will continue to market Trinidad and Tobago as a differentiated Cruise Destination and further enhance our tourism product.

TAUP And Other Incentives

In addition to the Tourism Development Act, the Ministry offers other attractive tourism tax incentives. The Tourism Accommodation Upgrade Project (TAUP)  is an incentive which provides a partial reimbursable grant for approved upgrade work done to accommodation facilities in both Trinidad and Tobago.

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago, through its Ministries of Health and Tourism are partnering with the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) and the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) to implement a joint Tourism and Health Program (THP).

Tourism Baseline Survey

Given the Ministry’s mandate to develop Trinidad and Tobago's tourism industry to realize its full potential the primary responsibility therefore, with respect to the national economy, is to contribute significantly to the key priority areas of Economic Growth, Job Creation, Competitiveness and Innovation.

We serve as a catalyst to help make Trinidad and Tobago a premier tourist destination.
Policy and strategic intervention are our key tools. Our other tools, while not as conspicuous are crucial,

like conducting research, monitoring and evaluating trends, and partnering with industry stakeholders.

We also help build awareness of the tourism industry.
The implementation arm of the ministry is the Tourism Destination Marketing and Product Development Company.
