The landscape of Trinidad and Tobago's IT enabled services is about to reach new heights with the advent of the Global Services Promotions Programme championed by the Ministry of Planning and Development. "Diversification" is no longer a buzz word but a reality; the objective of the program is to promote exports and foreign direct investment in the IT enabled services industry in Trinidad and Tobago.
