About the CCI
The Council for Competitiveness and Innovation (CCI) was established by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago in early 2011 as an advisory board to the Ministry of Planning and Sustainable Development. It is currently charged with the responsibility to significantly improve this country’s global competitiveness as well as to foster innovation as key drivers of a diversified knowledge based economy. The Council is expected to assist in developing and implementing a holistic and competitive innovation policy that will transform the economy of Trinidad and Tobago and improve its global competitiveness and innovation rank over the next ten years.
CCI created the i2i (Idea 2 Innovation) competition to become a vehicle for the development of ideas with commercial potential. This programme represents an investment in the creativity, potential and ingenuity of citizens of Trinidad and Tobago to conceive new inventions and innovative projects.
