The company is also working in Barbados’ waters close to the border.(See highlights of the: Signing Ceremony)The Prime Minister said the agreement lays the groundwork for the two countries to act as one in encouraging investment in their offshore deep waters. In the coming months it is expected that both countries will sign a unitization and a general framework treaty which will enable the exploration, development and production of hydrocarbon resources.During a bilateral meeting before the signing both Prime Ministers earmarked other areas for cooperation including the fishing industry.Dr Rowley noted that this issue remains of particular interest to the people of Tobago who are closest to Barbados. He said there is a need to find a way forward that is beneficial to all stakeholders while attracting investors from both countries who could penetrate both the local and international markets.Both countries are also advancing discussions with respect to sharing diplomatic missions specifically in Africa and Asia.
