President of the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC) Warren McDonald says he’s looking forward to the strengthening of ties between Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica following today’s meeting with heads of the local private sector bodies and the Trinidadian Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley. 

The meeting is set to begin at 2:30 in Kingston.

Rowley is expected to address Jamaica's trade imbalance with his country and other matters regarding business development between both nations.

The JCC President says he believes Rowley has so far been giving positive statements about the regional integration.

Speaking with The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre this morning McDonald said he is hoping the discussion will result in the exploitation of benefits so that the integration movement will positively impact each territory.
