e TecK’s Tamana InTech Park is proud to sponsor a booth at the upcoming 2nd Trinidad and Tobago ICT Business and Innovation Symposium from November 14-16th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Trinidad.
Hosted by The Government of Trinidad and Tobago in collaboration with the e-Business Roundtable and the National Information and Communications Technology Company Limited (iGovTT), the Symposium represents a unique opportunity for business executives to engage in a forum for regional discussion and debate on matters relating to Information and Communications Technology.
The theme of the Symposium, “ICT Innovation: Staying Ahead”, reflects the country’s commitment to diversify the economy by making ICT one of the new pillars of growth and economic prosperity, laying the foundation of Trinidad and Tobago’s transformation into a knowledge-based society.
The Symposium will be a key catalyst to encourage businesses and Governments in the region to make increasingly more effective use of ICT within and across their operations.

In addition to the implementation of the Tamana Intech Park, e TecK has also been actively involved in helping to create a business climate necessary for high technology, knowledge-based firms to establish at Tamana Intech Park, which involves:
- Promoting the development of Clusters in the ICT sector
This brings together all players in the ICT sector- suppliers, competitors, academia, government – to work collaboratively to innovate and commercially evolve the sector. These clusters will create an environment in which similar businesses and other related industries along the extended supply chain will interconnect to create innovative solutions and increase productivity which will allow them to compete on a global scale.
- Promoting an integrated innovation system
This involves primarily the establishment of the Trinidad and Tobago Innovation Centre, a Business Incubator Programme. Eteck also advocates for improved enforcement of Intellectual Property Laws and the creation of Partnerships between private sector, government, and the University/Research Institutions
- Leveraging and Lobbying for Fiscal Incentives on behalf of both local and foreign ICT investors
- Equity Fund and Venture Capital Establishment
In all of ETeck’s initiatives within the ICT sector, the focus has always been and will continue to be on the promotion of collaboration among industry players, provision of high-tech, high quality ICT infrastructure and the creation of a healthy, active business environment for the fostering of ICT related activities and innovation.
Tamana InTech Park is well-poised to direct the country’s future along the path to becoming a knowledge-based society.
