Content Chamber holds seminar

By VERNON KHELAWAN Saturday, April 13 2013

“LOCAL construction boom or doom?” – is the title of a one-day seminar organised by the Trinidad and Tobago Local Content Chamber (TTLCC) and scheduled for April 18 at the Faculty of Engineering at the St Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI).

The agenda includes discussions on the current state of the construction industry in Trinidad and Tobago, and what can possibly be done to improve its situation, not only for the industry itself, but the wider community as well. Other topics would include: -“The effects of stimulating growth in the construction sector”, “Metrics for local content” and the “Role of the private sector”.

The TTLCC has as part of its mandate, to ensure the widest possible local participation in projects, since it believes this would strengthen the local industry, and provide a springboard into regional markets. The Chamber is inviting all members of the industry – architects, engineers, planners, surveyors, contractors, suppliers, technicians and tradesmen to attend and be part of the discussions.

The Chamber was founded a little less than two years ago by a few companies, based on the recognition that there was a critical need for a business association or organisation that is dedicated exclusively to supporting nationals and locally-owned businesses in the Trinidad and Tobago economic landscape.

Main objective of the TTLCC is to design, build and operate a local institution that would pursue the development of local competence while supporting the needs and aspirations of our nationals in the entire spectrum of the service sector, covering energy (including service companies, local E and P firms and mid-stream and downstream operators), local finance companies, local insurance and brokerage firms, local manufacturers, local ICT companies, local contractors and other related companies serving the building and sustenance of local capacity in the furtherance of national development.
