This was the sentiment expressed by President of the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturer’s Association Dr. Ralph Balgobin, while he spoke with News Power Now earlier today.
Mr Balgobin noted that the CARICOM region was too small to allow for growth and development of the local manufacturing sector, and it was time to look further afield.
He expressed optimism over Republic Bank’s move into Ghana, saying that it would pave the way for other T+T businesses to enter the Ghanian market.
This comes on the heels of a call from Consultant to the World Bank Amadu Massally, encouraging T+T investors to consider the African Continent for investment opportunities.
Massally delivered the Keynote Address at the 16th Annual “Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Symposium”, held at the Trinidad Hilton on Friday.
