Trinidad and Tobago has officially opened an Embassy in China.

The new Embassy opened in Beijing on Wednesday, inaugurated by Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar during her official visit to China this week.

The opening of the embassy was first announced in June 2013, in the context of the visit to the country by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

At the time, Persad-Bissessar said the new embassy could include a Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Institute in Beijing.

That was the first time a Chinese head of state had visited the Caribbean.

China has been investing and aiding in a number of large projects in Trinidad and Tobago in recent years.

Persad-Bissessar concludes her official visit to China on Friday.
