Carroll wraps up Trinidad trade mission

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.

Can you say boondoggle????

What a bunch of BS. She is from Trinidad!! Are you reporters really that lame? They are a non-factor in trade with us! This is nothing but a taxpayer funded vacation for her. If she was serious about a trade mission, she would go to Japan or Canada! Come on Herald... do your job!
