Mission

 

The Government of Japan established diplomatic relations with the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in 1964, just two years after the twin isles had attained their Independence in August 31, 1962.


The years that passed saw the growth of cordial relations between the two countries, during which time the Japanese Government also established diplomatic ties with eight other Eastern Caribbean countries. In order to solidify its relations with these gems of the Caribbean Sea, the Embassy of Japan was officially founded in 1979 in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

 

As a result, in addition to serving the needs of Japan and Trinidad, the Embassy in Port of Spain is concurrently accredited to the islands of Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, St. Christopher and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname.

 

From its base in the capital city Tokyo, the Japanese Government has been able to cultivate close relationships with the various territories under its jurisdiction, thus accomplishing its objectives to (i) strengthen the ties of friendship and mutual understanding through co-operation in matters of bilateral interest, and in issues of regional and international importance, (ii) promote cultural and educational awareness, and (iii) assist with the interests of both Japanese nationals and the citizens of the respective island states.
