T&T discusses deeper economic and trade relations with Spain

Trinidad and Tobago and Spain have expressed interest in strengthening their cooperation across various spheres in a bid to more effectively contribute to creating global solutions to challenges.

An indication of this was revealed through a media release issued by the Ministry of Foreign and Caricom Affairs.

On Wednesday the two nations marked the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.

The occasion was marked by the visit to this country by the Spanish Secretary of State for International Cooperation and Latin America Fernando Garcia Casas who met with Foreign and Caricom Affairs Minister, Dennis Moses.

Some of the areas discussed were matters relating to Spanish investment in Trinidad and Tobago, joint cooperation in the field of tourism, political dialogue between both countries, the possibilities to further deepen economic and trade relations, as well as our countries’ interest in actively collaborating on cultural issues and people-to-people programmes.

A Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in Cultural Affairs is receiving active consideration.
