Trinidad and Tobago pledged two million dollars to the Asia tsunami relief efforts. This brings the amount pledged by regional governments to more than $4 million.
Prime Minister Patrick Manning said although Trinidad and Tobago is small and has limited financial resources, its position as a global player in the energy sector brings certain responsibilities to the world community.
He said the Trinidad and Tobago government was specifically responding to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's call for assistance to the tsunami recovery efforts.
