PRIME MINISTER ROOSEVELT SKERRIT LEADS DELEGATION TO AGRI-INVESTMENT FORUM IN GUYANA

Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit will depart the island on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 to attend the Agri-Investment Forum & Expo in Guyana, hosted by the Government of Guyana and the CARICOM Secretariat.

The forum runs from May 19-21 at the Arthur Chung Convention Center in Georgetown, Guyana, under the theme “Investing in Vision 25 by 2025.”

The event is a follow-up to discussions at the 33rd Inter-sessional Conference of Heads of Government held in Belize in March, which focused on efforts to reduce the region’s food import bill and attract investment to the agriculture sector.

Heads of government and members of delegations will address issues linked to investment in agriculture and food production, including cross-border investment, climate smart agriculture and related infrastructural development.

Hon. Ian Douglas, Minister of Trade, Commerce, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Business and Export Development; Hon. Fidel Grant, Minister of Blue and Green Economy, Agriculture and National Food Security; and Mr. Hillary Shillingford of Salisbury and Mr. Deles Warrington of Calibishie, commercial farmers, will accompany the Prime Minister to the meeting.
