The oil and gas industry has been the most important in Trinidad & Tobago for some time. It had been in long-term decline from the 1980s due to falling yields and low world prices. More recently, however, new discoveries,Download increased foreign investment and a steady increase in world prices have reversed the trend. The first major petroleum find in thirty years, by BHP Billiton in 2002 has revived production which had been falling since the 1970s.
In the summer of 2003, Trinidad signed a landmark agreement with nearby Venezuela, one of the world's largest producers, to collaborate in all aspects of the oil and gas industries. This resulting increase in revenues has allowed the Government to substantially reduce income taxes and re-institute free university education.
In 2006, as natural gas production expands, Trinidad and Tobago is already the 5th largest exporter of liquefied natural gas in the world.

The government's economic strategy is based on fiscal and monetary discipline, private sector investment, and export-led growth. The exchange rate in late 2004 was about $6.29=U.S.$1.00 and has been close to this figure for over a decade. The stability of the currency against the U.S. dollar has been maintained by the government's tight monetary policy.

As for Trinidadian Prime Minister Patrick Manning, "he has a world vision very different from ours," Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said, noting that Trinidad hopes to host the FTAADownload headquarters.

Chavez says he is leading Venezuela away from U.S.-style capitalism and toward socialism _ a mission he says Jesus would have approved of because he spoke for the poor. Chavez recalled telling Manning: "Remember Jesus.",

Download"We want ideas to save our planet, to save the planet from the imperialist threat. And hopefully in this very century, in not too long a time, we will see this, we will see this new era, and for our children and our grandchildren a world of peace based on the fundamental principles of the United Nations, but a renewed United Nations.

And maybe we have to change location. Maybe we have to put the United Nations somewhere else; maybe a city of the south. We’ve proposed Venezuela. "

Not having the benefit of  NAFTA (the Free Trade agreement between Mexico, USA and Canada) has spurred many new initiatives, alliances and opportunities. One of the most provocative is the idea of Port of Spain as a Hong Kong like port of entry for both South America and the Caribbean. The country's main trading partners are Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana in the region and, further afield, the UK, the USA, Canada, Brazil and Germany. Somethings afoot as a boom in construction projects is evident everywhere on the two islands.The new $661.5 million Piarco Airport  is the most impressive piece of this trend thus far. It is hoped the old airport will become a cargo hub....
The islands now cater to about 400,000 visitors annually; the industry is worth about US$275 million to the Trinidadian economy. The beautiful North Coast of Trinidad overlooking the Caribbean may be an excellent ground floor opportunity as plans to turn Las Cuevas Bay into a destination get underway.
