Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll wrapped up a trade mission to Trinidad and Tobago on Friday, after spending a week in the island nation where she was born.
Representatives from 27 Florida companies traveled to Trinidad as part of the trade mission organized by Enterprise Florida. The goal was to strengthen trade ties between Florida and Trinidad, a top trade partner in the English-speaking Caribbean.
During the trip, Carroll met with acting Prime Minister and Minister of National Security Jack Warner, and other government officials. She also gave a series of lectures on behalf of the U.S. State Department.
Trinidad celebrates its 50th anniversary of independence this month.
