BAS chief executive officer James Paul said Stuart would head a list of distinguished speakers. Among them are United Nations sub-regional coordinator Dr Deep Forde, who is expected to speak on cassava with special interest on the production of cassava flour.

In addition, the symposium will examine green technology by some practitioners, while animal genetics will be examined with a view to earning foreign exchange for the country.
