Export Market Research Centre

Welcome to the Export Market Research Centre


The EMRC is envisioned to be the leading provider of market intelligence for exporters of goods and services. It will collate data from local and international sources and combine it with analysis from a uniquely Trinidad and Tobago perspective to ensure that it meets the data needs of Trinidad and Tobago Exporters.



  1. Market Intelligence

    Trade Data is often bulky and difficult to understand - The EMRC will operate on the assumption that the job is not complete until the client receives the information that they require and they understand the data that is presented in a way that can be turned into revenue. The EMRC analyses the data and put it in a form that is palatable to the Exporters so that they can do more with the information than they would if it were simply handed over to them.

  2. Customised Research

    The EMRC enables exporters to “outsource” their research department. It effectively provides quality research services to all exporters regardless of their size, their product and most importantly, regardless of their in house research capacity.

  3. Analyst Training

    The EMRC tries to promote a “Research Culture” so that trade decisions will be made against data and intelligence rather than hunches and instinct. Exporters face global competition from firms with greater production capacities and technologies, and they operate with large budgets and often have better understanding of the markets. The EMRC aims to overcome those challenges by equalizing the playing field so that exporters can expand their exports to current markets and be effective in penetrating new markets.
