TT, Guyana seek new economic ties
PRIME MINISTER Kamla Persad- Bissessar welcomes President of Guyana Bharat Jagdeo to the Office of the Prime Minister, St Clair, where they held talks on economic cooperation.
President Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday met Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar at the Office of the Prime Minister in Port-of-Spain. The two leaders discussed a number of issues including strengthening of economic ties between both countries.
Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar also promised T&T's assistance to Guyana which is seeking to embark on an aggressive oil and gas exploration later this year. President Jagdeo thanked Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar for the offer, one he said would be taken up if and when these natural resources are discovered. President Jagdeo also reportedly invited Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar to attend an upcoming meeting in Guyana of Latin American leaders which he will be chairing. The meeting between the Guyanese Head of State and the newly elected Prime Minister of T&T was reported to be very cordial and lasted for over an hour.
