Bilateral relations

 

Diplomatic relations between Colombia and Trinidad and Tobago were established on February 22, 1968. The Embassy was closed for strictly budgetary reasons in 2002, for 10 years.

With a view to strengthening Colombia's relations with the non-Spanish-speaking Caribbean, the national government requested and obtained authorization from the Government of Trinidad and Tobago in January 2012 to reopen a resident mission in Port of Spain, at the Embassy level.

In relation to the other States under the responsibility of this embassy, the beginning of diplomatic relations with Colombia was as follows:

Barbados: February 1, 1972

Granada: January 9, 1981

Guyana: December 18, 1970

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines: March 17, 1981

Suriname: June 24, 1978

 

The Cartagena Declaration of 2019

During this meeting, the interest of the Foreign Ministers of the region was renewed to strengthen relations and work together in different areas of interest to all States, such as South-South cooperation, economic and commercial relations, transportation, culture, education, sports, environment, renewable energy, agriculture and agro-industrial development, climate change, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, disaster risk management and recovery, among others.
