Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago

Keynote address by the Honourable Colm Imbert, Minister of Finance, MP at the TTIFC and the EU-UNCDF-OACP Partnership for Digital Financial Inclusion

I am pleased to be here with you this morning to discuss a very important agenda item for the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, namely Financial Inclusion.
One of this Government’s major focuses is empowering every citizen to participate meaningfully in the economy of Trinidad and Tobago. To achieve this, we believe that everyone should have equitable access to the formal financial sector regardless of their circumstances or background. Today’s National Financial Inclusion Strategy Stakeholder Consultation Workshop illustrates our work in this regard.
