[www.inewsguyana.com] – Guyana intends to “refresh and renew” commitments with the new government of Trinidad and Tobago, whose newly elected Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley is expected to be sworn in today, Wednesday, September 09, 2015.

The People’s National Movement booted the Kamla Persad – Bissessar administration out of office at the just concluded elections on September 07 and according to Minister of Governance, Raphael Trotman, commitments made between Guyana and the twin Island Republic under the former administration will still be honoured.

Trotman said that President David Granger and his cabinet expressed “great anticipation and expectation to continued excellent relations with the twin Island Republic.”

“The commitments were not between Head of State and Head of State but between country and country and so even with the change of government, we intend to continue and in fact deepen the ongoing arrangements between Guyana and sister Caricom nation, Trinidad and Tobago,” Trotman told a post cabinet media briefing.

Just a month ago, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana agreed to a Joint Commission to initiate and oversee collaboration in construction, education, business and other areas where it would be mutually beneficial to deepen ties.

Guyana is also purchasing oil from Trinidad.
