Trinidad Foreign Minister Dr Surujrattan Rambachan signed on behalf of Trinidad, while China’s Wang Chao, vice minister of commerce, signed on behalf of his country.

At the forum, China announced it would be loaning a total of $1 billion to the Caribbean to spur investment and development.

    the present government in [email protected], didn’t agree with the past government having deals with China, lo and behold they are. Fraudesters.
    I think that citzens of the Caribbean need to know is that China has one of the most evil human rights record. It might not affect them, but be aware.

    a rich a** country as Trinidad signing contract with China and Dominicans want to run the Chinese?….no wonder we will always be last cacarat. we tend to cling to the wrong set of ppl….instead of sitting worrying bout weakileaks and the NO help we are getting from the US, we should be busy signing contracts with CHINA, one of the world greatest super powers who are willing to help out, unlike the US….big chupes!

    I hope UWP asked the Chinese to produce the MOU to the Trinidad public, because already PM Skerrit asked them hide it.
