Liverpool is set to work with Trinidad and Tobago on developing trade and investment opportunities.
The High Commissioner, His Excellency Garvin Nicholas, is coming to the city on Tuesday 28 May on a two day mission.
He will meet key business and civic figures, including representatives from the Chamber of Commerce, Liverpool Vision and Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar, to establish strong collaborative links.
The discussion will focus on commercial and investment opportunities, and establishing relationships with public and private sector organisations.
The High Commissioner said: “The City of Liverpool and the Government of Trinidad and Tobago share much in common with regard to our mutual emphasis on new business development.
“In particular, as a leader in maritime commerce, Liverpool can be a key partner in Trinidad and Tobago’s port development initiatives.
“Our Mission is in a pivotal position to capitalise on these opportunities and build a bridge between Liverpool and by extension, the United Kingdom and Trinidad and Tobago”.
During his time in the city he will tour the city’s historic Town Hall, meet with fellow nationals who live in Liverpool and also visit the International Slavery Museum.
Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar, said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome the High Commissioner to Liverpool.
“I am looking forward to having productive discussions to develop the city’s links with Trinidad and Tobago which will be mutually beneficial.”
The visit has been secured by Trinidad-born Liverpool Councillor Nathalie Nicholas, who said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the City of Liverpool and Trinidad and Tobago to develop tangible investments links and partnership.”
