Trinidad and Tobago's Minister of Trade and Industry, Paula Gopee-Scoon, has welcomed the opening of two new offices in Port of Spain and Scarborough by international accounting firm Crowe Horwath.
Speaking at a launch function hosted by Crowe Horwath, Gopee-Scoon said: "The establishment of a presence in both islands reflects the strength of the domestic business environment, the country's stable political system, and the human resource capabilities residing in this country...Trinidad and Tobago's sustained ability to attract companies in the [financial] services and other sectors reflects a robust foundation upon which the 8th largest global accounting network will flourish as it promotes its suite of audit, tax, and advisory services."
Noting the services sector contributed approximately 56 percent of total GDP, Gopee-Scoon said the country's attractions include: easy access to North and South America; its strategic location as a shipping hub for exports; preferential access to the Caribbean Community market and other regional and international markets through trade agreements with the USA, Canada, and the European Union; low utility costs; developed communications infrastructure; and access to generous fiscal incentives.
