Economic sustainability is essential to the successful regeneration of East Port of Spain. Business Improvement Districts will be established to facilitate economic activity, job creation and investment. A series of targeted actions and package of appropriate incentives will attract new businesses into East Port-of-Spain and encourage private sector participation to stimulate economic growth, reduce unemployment and alleviate poverty.
Business Improvement Districts are proposed within CDA 1 and within CDA 5 along the Eastern Main Road. Development in BIDs will be guided by the standards articulated in Table 2.4.
