Port-of-Spain, June 27, 2022 – How can we better support local green-blue enterprises (LGEs) as part of COVID-19 recovery and as a pathway to a more inclusive, sustainable and resilient economy in the Caribbean? CANARI Policy Brief 28 ( ) presents key findings and recommendations from a Contextual Financial Analysis on financing and support for LGEs in Trinidad and Tobago.
This found that firstly, LGEs require a special legal status and definition to build a more enabling policy framework. Tailored and integrated business development support and capacity building is also needed. Financial products and services must be customised and enabled, including through expanded digitisation of services and financial literacy.
LGEs, decision-makers in policy and regulatory agencies, business development support organisations and financial institutions must engage in dialogue and collaborate to strengthen and promote the sector.
