The Economic Bulletin (EB), which is published twice per year, reviews the economic condition of Trinidad and Tobago. The EB analyses changes in economic growth, monetary aggregates, fiscal operations of the Government and the external accounts of the Trinidad and Tobago economy.
Economic activity is expected to improve in 2022. Local energy production is poised to benefit from the start-up of several
upstream projects from bpTT, Shell Trinidad and Tobago, EOG Resources Trinidad and Touchstone Exploration. Additional impetus
should come from higher commodity prices and increased demand for energy-related products. Activity in the non-energy sector
is expected to benefit from heightened business activity and a recovery of consumer demand. Meanwhile, the external impetus to
domestic inflation is expected to persist in the short term, stemming from disruptions to global supply chains and high
international energy and other commodity prices. Macroeconomic policy in Trinidad and Tobago will continue to grapple with the
challenges of nurturing a solid economic recovery alongside inflationary concerns. Evidence of stronger competition worldwide
also points to the need to advance structural reforms to better position the economy to penetrate export markets.
