The Couva/Pt Lisas Chamber of Commerce and the Embassy of the Republic of Colombia have expressed their interest in working towards enhanced trade opportunities within the region, more specifically between Trinidad and Tobago and Colombia.
On Monday, members of the Board of the Couva/Pt Lisas Chamber of Commerce and the Embassy met with Martha Cecilia Pinilla Perdomo, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Colombia and her team at the Colombian Embassy, Port of Spain, Trinidad.
A statement from the Chamber said: “Notably, there was consensus that both countries can improve trade benefits and opportunities given their close geographical proximity and that same allow significant room for broadening.”
The President of the Chamber reaffirmed his commitment to the members of the Chamber and working towards expanding the opportunities available to them.
A key aspect of the discussion included methods to improve the ease of doing business to facilitate better access to both markets as the first step in the process.
The Chamber added it is therefore vital that the Government of Trinidad and Tobago and Caribbean Airlines explore the possibility of direct flights between the two countries to encourage travel and to facilitate the exploration of further opportunities.
Both the Chamber and the Embassy agreed to continue these discussions with the willingness to prepare a seminar aimed at providing information to all relevant stakeholders and interested parties regarding business opportunities in Columbia.
