Chinese Icons

This publication, The Contribution of Local Chinese to Science, Technology and Innovation, printed in 2009 by NIHERST, continues the institute’s commitment to recognising nationals for their outstanding achievements in science and technology and to promote public awareness of our country’s heritage in these fields of endeavour. In commemoration of the second bicentennial of the arrival of people from China to the shores of Trinidad & Tobago, the focus of this book is on the contributions of nationals of Chinese descent in the areas of science, technology, and innovation.
