Growth in Trinidad & Tobago Will Remain Weak Through 2019


  • Economic activity in Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) will undergo a modest expansion in 2019 as energy production continues to rise.
  • However, T&T will face headwinds from contractionary fiscal and monetary policy and slowing global growth, which will weigh on consumption and investment.
  • Fitch Solutions maintain its forecast for real GDP to expand by 1.3% in 2019, following a growth estimate of 1.0% in 2018.
