PORT OF SPAIN, (CMC) – The chief executive officer of Royal Dutch Shell Group Ben Van Beurden will hold talks with Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar on Wednesday, according to an official statement issued here Saturday.
The government statement said that Van Beurden’s visit was discussed here Friday with Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar and Shell Trinidad Limited Country Chairman, Luis Prado, as well as the Minister of Energy and Energy Affairs Kevin Ramnarine.
"The visit, the first by a Shell CEO to Trinidad and Tobago, comes as part of Van Beurden’s visit to key countries in the region that form part of the recently announced £47 billion (One British Pound =US$1.46 cents) proposed combination of Royal Dutch Shell and BG Group," the statement said,.
Last week, Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar said that Trinidad and Tobago had been given an assurance that the Royal Dutch Shell Company would continue to invest in the energy sector in the twin-island republic.
She told the Summit of the Americas Chief Executive Officers conference in Panama that she had been given the assurance from Van Beurden on the same day of the acquisition earlier this month.
