At business roundtables organized by the Latin America Association and the local chambers of commerce, the representatives of nine companies from Trinidad and Tobago will present business opportunities in the twin islands and explore further opportunities to export their products to Germany. The trade mission is also scheduled to visit the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
