Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago

Keynote Address by the Honourable Brian Manning, Minister in the Ministry of Finance at the launch of One FinTech Avenue- 5th July 2023

I am very pleased to be here today to formally open this facility – One FinTech Avenue – which will be regarded as the starting point and gateway for FinTech innovation in the Caribbean, this centre will also be the first of its kind in the Caribbean. This is certainly a huge milestone for Trinidad and Tobago as we seek to take our place alongside other globally recognized jurisdictions such as Luxembourg, Singapore, and the UK for advancing the FinTech sector and as a hub for the growth of inclusive digital financial services for the rest of the region. The Government, through the Ministry of Finance, is deeply invested in efforts to modernize our financial sector and supports the drive towards achieving more acceptance for digital payment products and services.
