GOPIO’s 25th  Anniversary in Trinidad & Tobago to coincide 169th Anniversary of Indian Arrival Day on 27th May

The Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) International Trinidad and Tobago Chapter plans on hosting the GOPIO’s 25th (Jubilee) Anniversary to be celebrated in Port of Spain on 27th May to 29th May, 2014 preceding the annual Indian Arrival Day commemoration.

The event will bring together delegates from world wide. This proposed event would be the first GOPIO International Convention to be held in the Caribbean region, and we take enormous pride in showcasing Trinidad & Tobago, the Caribbean region, people of Indian origin of the Caribbean and the rich, diverse culture of the region.

The strong relationship between GOPIO and Trinidad & Tobago began in 1989 with the formation of GOPIO with high level representation of several prominent persons from Trinidad & Tobago. This relationship blossomed to continuing participation in GOPIO at the highest levels at GOPIO’s major events and many GOPIO official visits to Trinidad & Tobago over the years. In addition, the International Trinidad & Tobago Chapter is among the most active and vibrant of GOPIO’s many chapters globally, addressing current and critical community issues such spousal abuse, alcoholism, education, children, women and health concerns. GOPIO is proud to have hosted Her Excellency Hon. PM Kamla Persad Bissessar on 12th January, 2012 at special reception/dinner in Kolkata during the visit to the Kolkata Memorial and the special guest to Pravasi Bharatia Divas 2012.

GOPIO in the Caribbean is very strong and active with many chapters in the region: Trinidad & Tobago; Guyana; Suriname; St Vincent; Belize; Guadeloupe; Martinique and Jamaica, with others in formation in St Lucia, Grenada and Barbados. Recently, GOPIO has held and collaborated on several major conferences in the Caribbean region: 2011 - Trinidad & Tobago; 2012 – St Vincent; 2013 – Suriname; 2013 – Guyana’s 175th Indian Arrival Day Commemoration; 2014 – Belize. GOPIO International Trinidad & Tobago Chapter has acquired a high level of expertise in successfully organizing major events and is fully capable of hosting the GOPIO’s 25th (Jubilee) Anniversary in Trinidad & Tobago in an exemplary manner with support from all segments of country and region.

The proposed GOPIO’s 25th (Jubilee) Anniversary program would be coincident with 169th Anniversary of Indian Arrival Day in which is celebrated as a significant day in the history of Trinidad & Tobago
