In Trinidad and Tobago there is no legal framework for public and private partnerships (PPP) nevertheless it exists The National PPP Policy and the ppp unit within the Ministry of Finance and Economy which promotes these types of projects in the country.
In The National PPP Policy is clarified that “The Government agency may be a Ministry, a State Enterprise, a Statutory Body, or any other Government contracting authority”
