Trinidad & Tobago, United States To Deepen Commercial Relations

Trinidad and Tobago and the United States continue to maintain good relations in trade with the US being this country’s largest trading partner.

For the past three years Trinidad and Tobago’s average annual exports to the United Sates were valued at TT$22.3 Billion dollars.

Imports averaged TT$14 Billion dollars.

Among the top exports to the US include anhydrous ammonia, ferrous products from iron ore, liquefied natural gas, methanol, crude petroleum and urea.

Trinidad and Tobago’s products currently benefit from preferential access to the US market under the Caribbean Basin Initiative.

This country has been the leading exporter under this arrangement since 2005.

Minister of Trade and Industry, Paula Gopee-Scoon, revealed this development during a Courtesy Call  from United States Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, Candace A. Bond, on March 24th.

The meeting allowed for discussions on issues of mutual interest and priority to both nations.
