Tobago is looking to expand and develop its creative and cultural industries.

The island’s residents are being urged to “develop a skill and take advantage of the many opportunities being offered by the creative and cultural industries,” according to Dr Denise Tsoiafatt-Angus, the island’s secretary of community development and culture.

“The Division of Community Development and Culture continues its intensified approach to preparing Tobagonians to better maximise on the opportunities of the cultural and creative sector, which is important to the diversification of Tobago’s economy,” she said.

She said she also hoped to see tourists buying more goods made locally in Tobago.

“We really would like persons to become more focused on developing a business for themselves so that they can begin to better able service our tourism sector,” she said.
