Kamla calls for stronger trade ties
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar is expected to leave India for home today. On the eve of her departure, she called for increased economic and trade cooperation between India and T&T. She did so during a business seminar at the Trident Hotel in Mumbai yesterday. Among those attending the luncheon with Persad-Bissessar were Energy Minister Kevin Ramnarine, Trade and Industry Minister Stephen Cadiz, Public Utilities Minister Emmanuel George and Foreign Affairs and Communications Minister Dr Surujrattan Rambachan.
Persad-Bissessar said India had become a trillion-dollar economy, which was largely self sufficient in agriculture with stable financial and services sectors. She commended the Indian people for their resilience after the terror attacks in Mumbai. “It is not easy to forget November 2008, when over a period of three days, this city was shattered by vicious terrorist attacks,” Persad-Bisessar said. She said Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and herself would highlight the need for the international community to adopt a comprehensive convention on international terrorism. Persad-Bissessar is expected to arrive at Piarco International Airport tomorrow afternoon.
