According to a Caribbeannewsnow release, while speaking to reporters on Sunday, 24th April, 2011, the prime minister pointed out: “Brazil is one of the fastest developing nations in the world right now and therefore the potential for investment for our people there is tremendous as well as for people out of Brazil to invest in Trinidad and Tobago.
“Whereas before we exported our oil and gas as raw materials, Trinidad and Tobago is now in the fourth age of mankind and therefore expertise and knowledge is what will make the world’s countries richer. We do have a lot of that talent and knowledge and energy. I think we stand well to benefit from it.”
The prime minister was due lead a delegation of government ministers and members of the business community to the Latin American country on Monday.
