Caribbean Airlines Cargo and exporTT — the national agency that seeks to diversify the export sector through the growth of non-energy, manufacturing and services exports in Trinidad and Tobago — have formed a strategic alliance to better connect businesses to regional and international markets.
The areas of focus for the partnership will be information sharing, incentives and joint export promotions, Caribbean Airlines said in a statement on Monday.
