It functions as a central body to lobby, channel and address trade in services issues, including development, which are critical for the sector to thrive in the competitive global business environment. TTCSI is already involved in representing services sector interests in all of the Trade Negotiations taking place bilaterally and multi-laterally.
TTCSI is the local institution responsible for issuing the CERTIFICATE of REGISTRATION as a CARICOM Service Provider in Trinidad and Tobago. The Coalition has now established a fully operational Secretariat in Belmont, Port of Spain.
