Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers' Association (TTMA)


The TTMA is the voice of manufacturers in Trinidad and Tobago, creating value and providing world-class service to their membership.

It was established in 1956 with eight pioneer firms, and today stands strong with close to 350 members. It is a voice of the manufacturing sector and the leading advocate for policies that assist in its growth and development.

In keeping with its mandate to promote the competitiveness of manufacturers in Trinidad and Tobago, the TTMA conceptualized and staged the first Trade and Investment Convention (TIC) in 1999, to showcase the high-quality products offered by this country’s manufacturers. 

TTMA believes that a modern, competitive and innovative manufacturing industry is central to Trinidad and Tobago’s economic future. The Association works with the Government, its agencies and regulatory bodies to address the challenges facing the country’s manufacturers - competitiveness, access to regional and international markets, and ease of doing business.

It provides support to its members through:

• Advocacy - aimed at improving the business environment in which Trinidad and Tobago’s manufacturers operate and enabling access to markets in the region and around the world;

• Research - Intelligence that keeps our members informed on business trends and policy developments;

• Trade Facilitation – Representing members at the various domestic, regional, hemispheric and international trade negotiation meetings;

• Business Sophistication - Assisting with the generation of market expansion both regionally and internationally through the mounting of the annual Trade and Investment Convention, and leading foreign trade missions.
