Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar, will be the chief guest at an international Trade Mission in India next month.

The Prime Minister is expected to be accompanied by a large delegation when she visits the country from January 5th to 14th.

This is not the first such visit for the Prime Minister as earlier this year with a contingent she visited Brazil for the same purpose.

In an interview Wednesday India’s High commissioner to Trinidad, Malay Misra, said this is Mrs. Persad Bissessar’s first State visit to his native land… one which came after some 15 years…

Mr. Misra says he believes the visit will have substantial results.

Mr. Misra revealed that Mrs. Persad Bissessar is the only Trinidadian dignitary to be the chief guest at such a grand event since she is also the only female leader in the diaspora.
