June 28, 2016:- A team of thirty-two (32) business men and women from China’s Building Materials Federation are currently in Trinidad and Tobago, being hosted by the national investment promotion agency, InvesTT Limited.
Addressing the visiting delegation Senator the Honourable Paula Gopee-Scoon, Minister of Trade and Industry noted that
‘early on I set out to share the plans of the Ministry on the Government’s trade agenda. I met with your ambassador, His Excellency Huang Xingyuan. Our agreed imperative, coming out of that meeting, was to improve our relationship through increased investments. His Excellency expressed his commitment and China’s willingness to assist Trinidad and Tobago in the areas of agriculture, financial services, manufacturing and tourism. During that meeting, I invited the Ambassador to lead a delegation to explore the many available opportunities in Trinidad and Tobago, particularly the Tamana InTech Park. What started with a conversation between your Ambassador and myself, a few short months ago, has culminated in your visit here today. I thank the Ambassador and the China Building Materials Federation for their efforts in putting this delegation together’.
