Tobago Hotel & Tourism Association, the Bankers' Association of Trinidad and Tobago, representatives of the Labour Movement, participants in the second THA Budget Survey and the first Survey of Productivity in Tobago. Your numerous suggestions have helped us to identify some of the budgetary priorities and to shape the eventual outcomes reflected in the Estimates for 2016.
