In this chapter, Anthony Paul looks at the downstream linkages of oil, gas, and minerals and the benefits of extracting, selling, and converting these resources into useable products. When and how do countries decided to do downstream value addition rather than exporting the raw materials? There are challenges faced by countries who try to create their own downstream activity, which are enumerated in this chapter. The case of Trinidad and Tobago is used as an example.
