Surindra Maharaj, speaking in his second term as President, said the negative effects of crime on the business community, is of great concern to the chamber. 

“'Looking out for Business' in the Region continues to be our main goal, however, foremost on our minds at this time is how the economic and crime situation is affecting our membership and the Greater Tunapuna region. Other areas we are targeting for this year include: 

- Working to improve the business climate in the region;

- Continually offering educational seminars and networking opportunities to members;

- Continued partnership with stakeholders in the region for areas such as crime and crime prevention; traffic/parking solutions, disaster mitigation, increasing business activity and other initiatives to be developed during the year;

- Continued partnership with the Confederation of Chambers;

- Youth educational and empowerment programmes."

The GTCIC has a large catchment area that starts from Mt Lambert extending up to Arouca and part of Caroni.
