PM to reveal plans for sector soon
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart will soon outline his vision for the local agricultural sector. He’s expected to do so at a Barbados Agricultural Association (BAS) symposium focusing on agriculture next week at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
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.
