Find Printing and Publishing expertise in Trinidad and Tobago

The local book publishing sector is small in Trinidad and Tobago. Many international book publishers tend to have regional focus, concentrating marketing efforts on the whole of the Caribbean rather than just Trinidad and Tobago. There is a high level of market penetration by UK-based media and publishing giants. Media and Editorial Projects Ltd. (MEP) was established in 1991 and is considered to be one of the Caribbean’s most respected publishing houses producing products for West Indian tourism, culture, business, art and materials for local and international businesses. Royards Publishing Company Ltd. is a publisher of textbooks for Primary and Secondary schools.

The Trinidad and Tobago Publishers and Broadcasters Association is the sectoral body who oversees the development of the industry. The Learning Materials Evaluation Committee of the Ministry of Education, which evaluates textbooks for use in primary and secondary schools, is the key public body in the textbook market.
