The Minister of Energy and Energy Industries, Stuart Young, met today with Charge d’ Affairs Shante Moore and his team of the United States Agency for International Development Regional Representative for Eastern and Southern Caribbean at the Waterfront offices of the Ministry.
The Agency’s team expressed the United States Government’s commitment to reestablishing the USAID/ESC presence in Trinidad and Tobago from a strategic, bilateral and regional standpoint.
These discussions were part of the USAID 2020-2025 Regional Development Cooperation Strategy.
The parties discussed many topics including the USAID/ESC’s assistance in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic regionally.
Minister Young thanked the team and by extension the United States Government for their role in the COVID-19 response through their involvement in the delivery of COVAX vaccines.
The Agency’s team also expressed their commitment to further contribute, to aid in the support of health care workers and the issue of vaccine hesitancy.
