IFC in Trinidad and Tobago

IFC has four offices in the Caribbean - Trinidad, Jamaica, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic - serving 14 countries. Our strategy in the Caribbean focuses on promoting job creation and inclusive growth; helping the private sector recover from the global financial crisis; supporting innovation, competitiveness and regional integration; and providing investments that help companies adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change.

Since Trinidad and Tobago became a member of IFC in 1971, IFC has invested $598.7 million in the country’s private sector, including $250 million in mobilization.


Because Trinidad and Tobago’s economy is energy dependent, IFC focuses on helping to diversify the economy and strengthen competitiveness as a means of stimulating growth and creating jobs. We also help supporting regional integration and competitiveness by helping strong, export-competitive companies expand outside of Trinidad and Tobago.


Through our Advisory Services, IFC is helping to increase private participation in the economy via public-private partnerships and helping to improve the investment climate in Trinidad and Tobago by providing advice and technical assistance to the government to implement reforms that improve the business climate.
