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.
