A fifteen (15) member strong Trade Mission from the Caribbean, particularly from Trinidad & Tobago, composed of architects, engineers, economists, as well as from the entertainment and the film industry, visited Malta between the 24 and the 25 September, 2012. The visit was made possible following the CARIFORUM-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) signed in October 2008. The main purpose of this visit was for the members of the Trade Mission to familiarize themselves with what Malta is capable of as a small island economy. In this regard, they also met Maltese Member of the European Parliament Prof. Edward Scicluna.

The members of the delegation met their Maltese counterparts in their respective fields of expertise. The Architects and Engineers besides holding encounters with local members of their profession, also visited the Malta Freeport as well as the Delimara Power Station whilst those involved in the entertainment and film industry met local artists, festival organizers and the Malta Film Commission, besides visiting St James Cavalier and the Manoel Theatre as well as being hosted on live music programs on local radio stations during which they were interviewed and have had their music played.

The Trade Mission's visit to Malta which was organized and hosted by Tanti-Dougall & Associates, Advocates, is the first stage of its tour within the European Union which is being followed by a visit to The Netherlands, France, Germany and United Kingdom with the objective to access as well as to establish a presence in the targeted European markets.

The Chef-de-Mission of the Trade Mission described the visit "as very successful and extremely positive for its various professional members who in a relatively short time, got to know what opportunities Malta can offer to them. It is definitely not a coincidence that our Trade Mission to Europe commenced from the beautiful island of Malta."
