Trinidad Express:– FOUR months after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared the South American country in a “state of economic emergency”, the leader of Trinidad and Tobago’s closest neighbour is turning to the Caribbean for support as he begins an official state visit to Port of Spain today.

He is coming to Trinidad immediately following his visit to Kingston, Jamaica, over the weekend.
Maduro signed “agreements for the sending of gas from Venezuela to Jamaica”, state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela Sociedad Anonima (PDVSA) said in a statement yesterday.
A similar deal may likely be formalised today in Port of Spain, the Express understands.
“Only together with the people of the Caribbean will we be able to transition to the path of happiness in the future,” Maduro said in Jamaica yesterday, after meeting with Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness for three hours at his Kingston office.
