During his speech, the Chargé d’affaires a.i. Mr Alain Galaup reminded all present of the major events over the past year between the two countries, while highlighting the many examples of the friendship between France and T&T, which is now 50 years old.
50 years - A period in time which cannot go unnoticed - since it coincides with the 50th Golden Anniversary Celebrations of the Independance of Trinidad & Tobago this year. 2012 also marks 50 years of Diplomatic relations between France and Trinidad & Tobago. France, was in fact, one of the first countries to recognise Trinidad and Tobago as an independant country in 1962.
