Welcome to the Website of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Trinidad and Tobago

I am very pleased to welcome you to the website of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Trinidad and Tobago!

The EU and T&T have much in common. Just as in the EU, diversity is also celebrated and cherished here. T&T’s motto “Together We Aspire, Together We Achieve” is comparable with the EU’s "United in diversity”.

The EU and T&T enjoy a partnership of equals that is more important than ever in the face of profound global challenges - the most serious being climate change and environmental degradation. We must work together, and with others, to meet these challenges and we cannot afford to fail.

I invite you to peruse the site where you will find details about the EU – who we are and our work in T&T. You can also find information here about our Calls for Proposals, tenders, job openings, and other information that may be of interest.

For those wishing to follow us a bit more closely, our social media handles are Facebook and Twitter. If you have additional questions or comments, we invite you to email us at

I hope you enjoy your visit to our site

Peter Cavendish
