The American Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad & Tobago (AMCHAM T&T), is commending the government and the relevant ministries for the introduction of the new automated border control system at the Piarco International Airport.
"We believe this is a step in the right direction as we move towards the digital transformation of the T&T economy," AMCHAM T&T said in a statement issued Tuesday.
In November 2017, AMCHAM T&T made a call for installing self-service kiosks after incoming passengers experienced long hours of waiting at the airport.
"Incidences such as these reflect negatively on the country and may have an adverse effect on other areas such as business and leisure travel, both of which are integral to our nation’s economy. This move will also aid in the speed and efficiency of operations at the major port of entry, especially during times of heightened traffic coming through the airport such as the July/August vacation period and Carnival," AMCHAM T&T said.
