based industry


economic history and the development of natural gas-based industry on the estate has been a major impetus for the transformation of Trinidad & Tobago into a gas-based economy. The location at Point Lisas was chosen due to the nature of the coastline and crucially the availability of large tracts of flat undeveloped land next to the coast. This landholding belonged to Caroni Ltd, at that time a private company owned by Tate and Lyle in London. The "estate" is now home to over 90 companies, e.g. YARA, Phoenix Park Gas Processors Ltd. (PPGPL), PLIPDECO, and Methanex. This includes the world's largest methanol plant, along with five additional plants, produces ca. 13% of global methanol output. The National Gas Company (NGC) of Trinidad and Tobago was founded alongside this as an aggregator and distributor of feedstock provided by the upstream. The idea behind NGC was to consolidate supply and provide guaranteed distribution to the various consumers at the end of its pipeline network. The elimination of large contracts between upstream and downstream created an efficient system of gas flow which the estate was fed. Urban structure Couva is approximately 15 km from San Fernando, 15 km from Chaguanas and 40 km from Port of Spain. It has a general East-West orientation and sprawls the Caroni Central plains with a constant north easterly wind. Couva benefits immensely from its unique location. The Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway ensures easy access to Port of Spain and San Fernando, in addition to the neighboring towns of Chaguanas, Point Lisas, Point a Pierre and Marabella. Transportation, Public Service Utilities, Shopping, Recreation and Entertainment, Health Care, Businesses, Schools and Industrial Centres are readily accessible. The urban structure of Couva is similar to that of most towns in Central Trinidad with a mix of residential and commercial activity within the town centre itself, i.e. along the Southern Main Road. Couva's major urban areas are: Mcbean Village (north of Couva town centre); Balmain incl. Central Park (east of the town centre); Isaac Settlement (south of the Southern Main Road); Lisas Gardens construction by the government (bounded between the Southern Main Road and Rivulet Road); Exchange Lots (north of Southern Main Road and in the centre of the town); and Couva North Gardens and Roystonia (north of Southern Main Road and occupies the former Exchange Estate area). Phases 1-3 of the Couva North Housing Project (in Perseverance) was built by the Trinidad and Tobago Housing Development Corporation (HDC) and like Lisas Gardens is primarily Afro-Trinidadian. The HDC entered into a joint venture arrangement with the private sector to design, finance and construct Phases 4-6 of the Couva North Housing Project also known as Roystonia. Under this arrangement, the development of over 170Ha of land from Perseverance to the Southern Main Road, has been constructed and delivered in excess of 1,000 homes. This development has attracted primarily Indo-Trinidadian of middle income or upper-middle income background into the Couva area. These new communities have profoundly changed the character of the town and significantly increased the overall population of the town. The community is located East of Perseverance Waterloo Main Road, west of the Southern Main Road, north of Couva Main Road Carli Bay Road and south of the Exchange Road, Couva. There are also substantial residential developments in progress within the Couva region on former Caroni (1975) Ltd. lands. Consequently the current services within Couva are under strain and are in state of transition or expansion to incorporate the new influx of residential activity. Economy Couva is the administrative and commercial centre of the region and the Point Lisas Port and Industrial Estate falls within the Greater Couva Urban Area. By 2000 Couva had the highest number (789) of businesses in the region. With the closure of Caroni (1975) Limited and the resultant decline in sugarcane production, more lands in the Greater Couva Area will be under pressure for residential, commercial, and industrial expansion. The main economic sectors in the region are as follows: :- Commercial business activities largely restricted to retail trade (personal and household products, auto parts and services, banks, and mini‐marts and groceries, etc.). :- Industrial development based on the existence of cement manufacturing in Claxton Bay by the Trinidad Cement Limited (TCL); petrochemical related industries at Point Lisas Industrial Estate; Petrotrin’s oil refinery operations at Pointe-à-Pierre; and other small light industry parks established by the Evolving Tecknologies and Enterprise Development Company (eTeck). :- Agricultural activities comprising livestock rearing, mixed agriculture, and other agriculture. The Couva-Pt. Lisas Chamber of Commerce headquarters is based within Couva located on Camden Road in Couva and its new building was commissioned 2012. The town is served by all the major banks in Trinidad, e.g. First Citizens Bank (FCB), Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), Republic Bank, and also the Unit Trust Corporation (UTC). Inclusive of these banks, there are numerous credit unions currently existing in Couva, e.g. TECU, Venture. Including many of the common fast food chains, Indian and Chinese food outlets, the popular restaurants in the town include Balthazar, Bourgonvilla, Touch n Taste, JZZ's Steakhouse, and Lady Gay. In addition, there are six beaches in the region where a significant amount and value of fish are landed. These beaches are Brickfield, Claxton Bay, Carli Bay, Orange Valley, St. Margaret Bay, and Waterloo. Located in Gran Couva (east of Couva), La Vega Estate is a 250 acre hideaway with outdoor activities and interests for the whole family. Originally a cocoa estate, La Vega is now home to a unique combination of garden centre, plant nursery, nature and recreation park. Transport The primary means of access to the region from areas in north and south Trinidad are the Uriah Butler Highway and Sir Solomon Hochoy Highways and the Southern Main Road. Also, a route between Chaguanas and Rio Claro (Rio Claro, Trinidad and Tobago), in the form of the Caparo Valley Brasso Road and the Tabaquite Rio Claro Road, runs diagonally through the region. There is no strong road link with areas to the east of the region. The Couva Preysal flyover was previously one of the most congested flyovers in the country, and the main access point to and from the highway, but has undergone an extensive upgrade (completed in March 2012) and significantly alleviated these problems. The Rivulet road which extends from the Couva Preysal flyover to the Point Lisas roundabout (and runs the entire southern length of Couva) is expected to be converted into a dual carriageway in 2013-15. This is expected to allow ease of traffic directly to the Point Lisas and the Couva town centre. Access is also possible by sea through existing industrial port facilities at Point Lisas. Point Lisas handles approximately 45 per cent of container cargo and 90 per cent of break bulk cargo (goods that don't come in containers) for the country. The Port also handles about 60 per cent of local manufacturers' goods for export. Port Point Lisas is the second major port in Trinidad and covers a total area of approximately 19 hectares. The national helicopter service is also based at Camden in Couva. Demography Formally a predominantly East Indian locality, Couva became increasingly populated by Afro-Trinidadians, primarily from urban areas that had reached a saturation point in terms of job opportunities, as well as dilapidated rural areas. Even though Indo-Trinidadians remain dominant numerically, the presence of the Afro-Trinidadians changed the character of Couva. Afro-Trinidadian neighborhoods center on National Housing Authority (NHA) housing projects, which were inaugurated by the government, and funded by oil revenues, to accommodate this new influx in population. To its credit, the culture of the community is more or less a sample of the national culture. Religious practices and rituals are mainly along the lines of the Christian (Roman Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian, Pentecostal Evangelist (Evangelicalism)), Seventh-day Adventist,Baptist, Hindu and Muslim faiths. The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Trinidad & Tobago had its genesis in the spot formerly occupied by the Heart and Hand Friendly Society Hall, and the Church has had a continuous presence since November 1895.

And so it was, Jean-François Jodar's side showing maturity beyond their years. Aggressive in the tackle and tactically very organised, they oscillated between a 3-5-2 and 3-6-1 and were able to rely on two extremely gifted individuals from Le Havre: Anthony Le Tallec and Florent Sinama-Pongolle, who won both the top scorer, with 9 goals scored, and Player of the Tournament awards. The young "Blues" won five of their six games, losing to Nigeria (Nigeria national football team) in the first round but getting their revenge in the Final. They hit five in a game on two occasions, against the USA (United States men's national soccer team) (5-3) and Japan (Japan national football team) (5-1) in group matches, before brushing past two footballing giants, Brazil (Brazil national football team) and Argentina (Argentina national football team) (2-1 in both games) at the knockout stage and overcoming Nigeria 3-0 in the final to win their first ever FIFA U-17 World title.
