April 20, 2017: Senator the Honourable Paula Gopee-Scoon, Minister of Trade and Industry met with the High Commissioner-designate of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Orville London, and Her Excellency Tracey Davidson-Celestine, Ambassador-designate of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to Costa Rica on Wednesday 19 April, 2017.

Minister Gopee-Scoon and her Executive team apprised High Commissioner-designate London of priority areas in bilateral trade, business and investment with the United Kingdom as well as opportunities within the Commonwealth. His Excellency reaffirmed his commitment to champion Trinidad and Tobago as a destination for investment and a partner in the trade in goods and services.

Her Excellency Tracey Davidson-Celestine, Ambassador-designate to Costa Rica, was also sensitized on the importance which Trinidad and Tobago attributes to its trading relationship with Costa Rica and other Central American countries to which the Ambassador will be accredited.  Minister Gopee-Scoon indicated that “as Trinidad and Tobago seeks to increase its trading relationship with Central America, the Costa Rican Market, consisting of over four (4) million people, provides a host of opportunities for Trinidad and Tobago’s exporters. The CARICOM- Costa Rica Free Trade Agreement also provides for free trade or preferential access for a wide range of goods”. Minister Gopee-Scoon underscored the importance of inter alia promoting Trinidad and Tobago’s manufacturing, creative and maritime sectors in Costa Rica.
