Speaking to thirty plus exporters, the Trade Minister said
‘Trinidad and Tobago’s trade relationship with Panama has grown steadily since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1995. We have experienced a positive trade balance with Panama over the years and in 2015, Trinidad and Tobago’s exports to Panama exceeded its imports by TT$221.9M. This relationship is anticipated to increase once the Partial Scope Trade Agreement between our countries enters into force’.
