Statement on Trafficking in Persons Report 2019

June 22, 2019: The 2019 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report covers the period up to March 2019.  Trinidad and Tobago remains at Tier 2 status, the same ranking it has held since 2017.  The report notes progress made by Trinidad and Tobago in multiple areas while acknowledging how Trinidad and Tobago, and many other countries, can continue taking steps to end the scourge of modern day slavery.

We appreciate the Minister of National Security’s balanced approach to the issues raised in the TIP report and look forward to working with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to continue fighting this crime against universal human rights.
