A Roadmap to Expand CooperationBharrat Jagadeo, Former President of GuyanaIn the last session of this conference we discussed how the PIO Parliamentarians can expand friendship and cooperation with India. Mainly four ideas have emerged out of the discussion—economic relations, political relations particularly dealing at the international level, cultural relations, and fourth is working with India in global settings to enhance and defend some universal values that we share.In the economic sphere we believe that there is an international economic structure that affects the way we trade and our economic well being. Take, for example the WTO. India has major issues with the WTO. We the Caribbean countries too have many issues with international trading. If we share our ideas more, we can strengthen our voice globally. As India is a global power it can help the smaller countries to negotiate a better framework in which they have to trade. Similarly, India can get their support in its advocacy for many issues. We can also strengthen trade links with the people of Indian origin. The PIO Parliamentarians can also help in rectifying the trade treaties and making the trade easier.
