Jamaica's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, A.J. Nicholson, and his Trindad and Tobago counterpart, Winston Dookeran, with their supporting teams in tow, hunkered down yesterday to formulate strategies to stave off a trade war between the two countries.

Both committed to dismantling obstacles that have emerged between the two countries which have served to obstruct, if not derail, the free- movement arrangements in the context of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).

Both men spoke candidly about the urgent need to flesh out solutions to the challenges that threaten to wreck the already fragile relationship between the two countries.
