Finance and trade were the principal topics of a high-level meeting between Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and His Excellency Zhou Xiaochuan, Governor of the People’s Bank of China and Chairman of the Monetary Policy Committee today.
The discussions were aimed at strengthening the bilateral relations between Trinidad and Tobago and China towards fostering mutual interests in finance and commerce.
