Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar will be heading to China this year where she said a Trinidad and Tobago Embassy will be established.

A Chinese delegation comprising Wang Zhaoguo, and members of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China paid a courtesy call on the Prime Minister at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann's.

The high level delegation included several Ministers, Wang Wanbin, Deputy Secretary General of the NPC Standing Committee, Hu Kangsheng, chairman of the Law Committee of the NPC, Luo Qingquan, vice chairman of the Environment and Resources Conservation Committee, and Lu Hao, vice chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the NPC.

The delegation is visiting this country on the invitation of Senate president Timothy Hamel-Smith and House Speaker Wade Mark to promote and discuss mutually beneficial exchanges between this country and China.

Wang in his discussions with Persad-Bissessar repeated the invitation for her to visit China which was first extended last September when the Vice Premier Wang Qishan visited Trinidad for the Third China Caribbean Economic and Trade Cooperation Forum.
