Trinidad and Tobago is an important actor in the Caribbean and, more broadly, in the hemisphere; and the U.S. enjoys a robust economic relationship with the country. The Commercial/Economic Section shares information on U.S. policy with the government of Trinidad and Tobago, and consults and cooperates with the Ministries of Trade and Industry, Energy, Finance and other government entities on items of mutual interest and concern.

The Embassy also partners with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Commercial Service in Santo Domingo to promote the export of U.S. goods and services and assist small and medium-sized U.S. companies achieve export success. Please note that counseling or other information provided by our office does not relieve business executives of the need to research business prospects independently and obtain expert advice from local legal, accounting, or other private advisors before undertaking business transactions.
