Located at the southern end of the Caribbean Sea, Trinidad and Tobago is a country with abundant resources, picturesque scenery and great cultural diversity. The country’s unique charming steel pan music and carnival have gained popularity around the world. In November 2021, Analisa Low assumed her post as the ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago to China. Low said that most of our two peoples know little about the deep exchanges between our two countries. As an ethnic Chinese, she expects to work for enhancing bilateral exchanges during her tenure.

“In Trinidad and Tobago, Cha Shaobao is very popular”

Trinidad and Tobago and China enjoy time-honored friendship, which can be represented by the family stories of Analisa Low, the ambassador. Low introduced that the two countries had shared a long and meaningful history of people-to-people and cultural exchanges before their diplomatic relations were officially established in 1974. In 1806, Chinese emigrants arrived in Trinidad and Tobago for the first time, which marked the Chinese people’s first organized settlement in the Western Hemisphere. Low’s grandparents moved from Zhongshan, Guangdong Province, China to Trinidad and Tobago in the late 1940s. “After coming to Trinidad and Tobago, most Chinese emigrants started businesses for a living while trying to learn English to integrate themselves with the locals.” From shopkeepers, restaurant owners, small vendors to people working on commodity sales, imports and exports as well as agriculture, Chinese people of all walks of life in the country have been an integral part of local communities.
