The heads of Trade and Industry in Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela have formalized the exchange of goods between both countries, some 29 days after a meeting of heads of government took place here in Trinidad.
Some 26.9 Million dollars’ worth of food and basic household items will be transported from Trinidad to Venezuela over the next few days by some eight local manufacturers who have committed to delivering the required goods for use by the Venezuelan market, which is larger than all of CARICOM combined.
Speaking yesterday, Trade Minister, Paula Gopee Scoon said reliability on the part of local manufacturers is essential.
Meanwhile, Venezuela’s Foreign Trade Minister, Jesus Farías said he was happy that both countries have reestablished a trade link.
