A multi-donor private sector development program financed by

Framework for Public Offerings in Trinidad and Tobago

This project is to establish a legal and institutional framework and corporate governance model to facilitate private investment in Trinidad and Tobago through a public offering program. The impact of the program would be improved governance of public enterprises and increased private sector investments in the economy. The implementation of the public offering program through the recommended legal and institutional framework designed under this TC will facilitate wider ownership and participation in sectors previously dominated by the state, demonstrate that the Government’s commitment to promote investments and private sector development is credible, and help create the fiscal space for poverty eradication and social programs as a result of the divestment of SOEs and improved SOE performance.
