USAID opens office in Trinidad and Tobago

The Unit­ed States Agency for In­ter­na­tion­al De­vel­op­ment/East­ern and South­ern Caribbean (US­AID/ESC), head­quar­tered in Bridgetown, Bar­ba­dos, will es­tab­lish a field of­fice in Trinidad and To­ba­go, lat­er this year. 

An of­fi­cial state­ment from the US Em­bassy says US­AID/ESC is al­so plan­ning to ex­pand its field pres­ence to oth­er coun­tries in the sub-re­gion this year

“US­AID/ESC’s pro­grams have al­ways in­clud­ed work­ing with the gov­ern­ment and lo­cal NGOs in Trinidad and To­ba­go.  Open­ing a US­AID field of­fice at the U.S. Em­bassy in Port of Spain is a tes­ta­ment to our com­mit­ment of strength­en­ing our strong part­ner­ship with the gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Trinidad and To­ba­go,” said Clin­ton White, US­AID/ESC Re­gion­al Rep­re­sen­ta­tive

US­AID/ESC is a re­gion­al of­fice re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing pro­grams through­out the East­ern and South­ern Caribbean, with staff cur­rent­ly lo­cat­ed in Bar­ba­dos and Guyana
