Xiamen holds promotional event for Trinidad and Tobago
A promotional conference for the Phoenix Park in Trinidad and Tobago was held in Xiamen, East China's Fujian province on April 20.
The event was hosted by Trinidad and Tobago's embassy in China, the Foreign Affairs Office of Xiamen and the Xiamen Committee of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, with government officials and representatives of more than 30 companies taking part.
Trinidad and Tobago is an important partner of China in the Caribbean region, said Yao Jianhong, deputy director of XMFAO, at the conference.
He said he hopes that Xiamen and Trinidad and Tobago will seek more opportunities in economic cooperation to benefit people from both sides.
Yao also encouraged local companies to increase their efforts to expand their markets in the Americas to achieve "win-win" development.
H.E. Adrian Thomas, a representative of Trinidad and Tobago's embassy in China, said his country is the first English speaking country in the Caribbean region to take part in the Belt and Road Initiative and the Phoenix Park is the first BRI project that China has built in partnership with a Caribbean country.
He welcomed companies in Xiamen and Fujian province to invest in the park and promised that the local government will spare no efforts to promote companies' development there.
