Welcome to the National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago

National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago Strategic Plan 2013 - 2017

NCC’s Vision:
“To be the global leader of carnival with, consistent growth, satisfying all stakeholders with quality products and services that exceed all expectations”

NCC’s Mission:
“To preserve the traditional heritage of Trinidad and Tobago Carnival whilst ensuring its sustainable development as a viable industry.”

The Mandate of the National Carnival Commission is set out in Chap 42:01 Act No. 9 of 91 of the Laws of Trinidad and Tobago and is as follows:

  1. To  make Carnival a viable national, cultural and commercial enterprise
  2. To provide the necessary managerial and organizational infrastructure
  3. To establish arrangements for ongoing research, the preservation and permanent display of the annual accumulation of Carnival products.

In an effort to fulfil its mandate and in accordance with the desire of the Board of Commissioners, the NCC has developed a five-year Strategic Plan 2013 – 2017 and Operational Plans for its various Departments/Units to guide its operations in the medium and long term. The plan is consistent with the national framework for sustainable development, which is built on seven (7) pillars.

This Strategic Plan 2013 – 2017 is the product of a collaborative process and was reviewed and finalized by all major stakeholders including Board members, Executive Managers, Staff and the major Special Interest Groups working with the NCC.

The attached Strategy Map 2013 – 2017 was also developed through a collaborative process and outlines the areas of focus and implementation for the NCC that will impact positively on the achievement of our Mandate.

The National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago thanks you, the media, for your continued support and look forward to our ongoing collaboration in preserving the traditional heritage of Trinidad and Tobago Carnival.
