employment injuries benefits

AMCHAM T&T is in the process of reviewing the Draft Policy on Employment Injuries Benefits. When we commented on the proposed Bill in May 2015, we noted that there was need for greater consultation and discussion on the policy direction that the government was attempting to take in this area. To that end, the Ministry of Labour held a consultation session on the topic in April 2017 and have requested comments on the Policy. The Draft Policy document can be viewed at the link below. We have also included presentations from The ILO's Injury Scheme and a presentation on the Workman's Compensation Act.  We would appreciate comments by Friday 23rd June, 2017.

t&t- mexico listing

 At the AGM, we solicited feedback from participants on their interest in preferential trading with Mexico. As a result of this exercise it was noted that 50% of respondents were interested in trading with Mexico, while 67% thought that there was a need for a preferential trading arrangement with that country. We communicated this and other information to the Ministry of Trade and Industry with the hope of soliciting more feedback from our members on specific items that should receive preferential treatment from T&T to Mexico or from Mexico to the T&T market. Please provide your comments on the Proposed Request List in the link below by Friday 30th June 2017
