Trinidad & Tobago Debates Commission 

ABOUT US

Unlike many other democratic countries, the political process of Trinidad and Tobago does not include the formal debating of key issues by appropriate leaders or representatives of opposing parties and viewpoints in a publicized forum. The Trinidad & Tobago Chamber of Industry & Commerce (TTCIC) believes that such debating would bring significant value to the citizens of T&T by stimulating discussion and information-sharing to guide their assessments and decision-making in political matters. Consequently the TTCIC championed the creation of the Trinidad & Tobago Debate Commission (TTDC) as an independent, autonomous, not-for-profit body to establish such debating as an embedded part of T&T’s democratic process.
